I went there before All Souls. The 20-year old waitress (who was very sweet) said she was too young too drink, but she could suggest beers based on how they smell. They were out of all wheat beers, so she suggested my wife get a cider instead...pause...
In the bathroom, a dude stormed in and yelled "I CAME FOR THE BEER, BUT I'M STAYING FOR THE PUSSY!!!".
The fried shrimp was good.
There. There's my review. I'll just put it here instead of Yelp.
I almost hesitate to suggest this because the meetings tend to go smoothly, and a bunch of reactionary idiots in the mix might be counter-productive, but the next time there's a public Downtown Links meeting, anyone who is afraid of the way planning is being executed should show up, listen, and talk to people. This project is being handled by smart, creative people with a great balance of sensitivity and pragmatism so far. http://www.downtownlinks.info
It seems to me that a lot of the panicking and internet yelling comes from people who haven't tried actual "civic engagement". If you're not a complete maniac, and can put a sentence together, people listen. If you're a whining dickhead with no constructive argument or suggestion, chances are you won't get the same attention in public that you do on the internet. So you'll need to adjust your ego. Sorry. That's just life.
I wish the mayor had a foot in scenester minutiae so he could write something like this and make people understand how passé they are. We're not living in an 80s movie where anyone with money has ill-intent. Most of the people I've met who are making things happen down here are educated, socially responsible, and have at least a little bit of vision. It's okay. Everything is gonna be okay. Stop panicking.
I can't decide who is less appealing to me right now, the writer or the subject.
