Re: “A Charity Gift Wrap for Youth on Their Own

This is a fantastic store and resource center. The products are the best of the best, and Ally really knows her stuff. The store is beautifully designed and very comfortable (there are chairs to lounge in), and there's none of that silly, giggling "wink wink" mentality I've experienced at other stores. Ally is known for her community activism work and I think overall, this is an excellent addition to the Fourth Ave. shops.

Re: “Underwear Party

Totally agree with Erin Jaye. Climb out of the 70s and stop body shaming.

Where am I going to get a ginormous bowl of Cap'n Crunch now? This is the sort of indignity that drove to join the Occupy movement!

Re: “Poets on Congress Open Mic

Since venues and start times for upcoming shows are subject to change, it's a good idea to check out the website at www.poetsoncongress.com for updates before heading down each month (altho this Saturday's show details above are correct!) Also good to know the open mic rules and learn the tips, too.

Brand new policy: the first hour of each show will be family-friendly; the second hour, we will issue a "potential rough language and adult themes warning" for parents and youngsters.

Thanks, TW, for making us a Staff Pick!

Re: “Takeout, Maybe?

My co-worker and I went for ice cream this afternoon (the day after the TW review I presume), and while the young woman at the ice cream station had the personality of a zombie - no eye contact, one-word replies to our questions, etc. - we were pleasantly surprised by the service we got once we seated ourselves outside on the patio. A lovely young woman brought us water to drink just moments after we sat down, and joked with us. She came back one or twice more (remember, we were just having ice cream) to check on us, and even a busboy came by to fill our water. I think you scared them straight, TW.

I can appreciate management wanting young, hipster kids working the floor, but they need send the zombie idiots walking, and keep the mature, friendly, professional people. The salted caramel ice cream was pretty good, by the way. I've wanted to each lunch there but (a) there's no delivery service to downtown businesses (BIG mistake - people in my building spell a fortune on the rather bland and limited selections downtown)...and (b) the prices generally don't support the working schmoe who eats out five days a week and needs some bargains. $12 for a corned beef? Jimmy John's gives ya something quite satisfying for $5 and delivers it at lightening speed.

Remember, Maynards almost went under the first year they started due to its reputation for their incredibly bad, snooty waitstaff, despite an excellent menu. Word spreads like wildfire and reputation is everything, Hub. Leave the jacked up prices for the dinner and late night crowd, and mass-fire all the pinheads who act like they hate the customers and their job.
