Was it worth it? Yes, but not at that price.

I just wanted to point out that, by definition, it means it wasn't worth it.


Well, it was my bro's treat so I can say that. The Howell mountain we had for example, they had it marked up to $260 and we know it was a $100 dollar bottle. So yes the price point makes you wince because you know you're getting screwed, but it's such a good effing wine you rationalize it away as you're enjoying the hell out of it. Probably a good 90% of the fine dining I've done I'd say wasn't worth the price of admission. The times it was however is effing phenomenal. Like a $60 8 oz flat iron Waygu steak that had been dry aged for 30 or 60 days - I can't recall. Closest I've ever had to an actual orgasm eating a piece of food. I could have died right after that steak a very happy man. Everyone should have a good piece of Waygu or Kobe at least once in their life.

So CCP is a one trick pony. This has tanked, what was the other planet combat thing that was supposed to tie-in with Eve? That's done too isn't it? And then you have Eve which by virtue of how they treat it is all but impossible for new people to get into. So they have their 200k people or whatever for several years, but they'll start losing them probably sooner than later, than what? Hence the old expression never put all your eggs in one basket.

Welp, it's nice and warm out today, but it's overcast and windy as hell. Next two days are back to near freezing, sigh. And the 14 day says it's only going to be about 10 on average, sigh.

Waiting for you future neighbor.

I hate you.

Believe me if I lived in the US I'd be living as south as physically possible to soak up as much heat and sun as I could. Key West, Baja, etc.

And as someone who worked in the biz for 20 years - mainly fine dining and as an owner - I'm well versed in what does and doesn't work. In more casual restaurants play and interaction with staff is more common. In fine dining it isn't and shouldn't be. The focus is the product and the environment, not the staff. When people make reso's they generally stipulate if it's something special and they want something special done. While some people are more social, the vast majority coming in aren't there to talk to the staff about their life and interests. They want people that know product backwards and forwards. And they mainly want the staff to be invisible. Anyone looking to be social sits in the bar (area).

And whilst I've been to Napa several times, no I haven't been to French Laundry nor would I. I don't like restos that are precious darlings. Most of that sort of critical praise is very lemming like. The real gems are the ones that most people don't know about - at least yet. I've done plenty of fine dining - a lot more than most people - and I still find it generally overrated and vastly overpriced. For my birthday last year my brother - also a sommelier - took me to lunch and that was almost 500 bucks for two bottles of wine and a few plates of food and grat. Was it worth it? Yes, but not at that price.

I much prefer "rustico" - trattoria/osteria style peasant food. Bring me a few plates of good food to nosh and a few tumblers - of good wine and that's all I need. I much prefer eating in Italy and Germany over France. I still have to do Spain however. And while I have little desire to really "do" Spain, they are leading the world in cuisine right now so it simply has to be done. I really wish we had more tapas/cicchetti style resto/winebars here however.

You want a rec?

Dunn Vineyards

Pick up a bottle of Dunn Howell Mountain Cab - any vintage. It runs $80-$100 a bottle and it's worth every penny. Best single vineyard cab in NA. You will not regret it.

Look I'll be pissed as anyone if they do skip it but obviously they're focusing on the Spybox and PS4 and not hearing even a peep if it's coming to PC by this point in time strikes me as something that does not bode well. The boding is fore at this point, as it were.

Nah, if they're doing it for the next-gen consoles they're going to skip the PC.

If they already have it running on x86 for both consoles, why would they skip the pc???


Why would they skip RDR when they would have made a fortune on it? I don't know, nin. They're Rockstar. They do weird shit for no obvious reason.

Holy shit is that restaurant googling you back ever creepy. I just want professional staff who are knowledgeable about their job and their products. I could care less if the sommelier and I have an affinity for jazz. I'm not there to talk about jazz with him, I'm there to have dinner.

Dumb idea to begin with. Should have just done a new VtM with multiplayer/co-op first. And if they did a great job with that, then consider the MMO route. Really not surprised they cancelled this. I wonder how much this set them back. Probably a nice chunk of change.

Okay, fine. You oppose nationalization, and you oppose regulation. What's your solution to the current problem of monopolistic or duopolistic internet connectivity? Because the current system will leave us stuck at 10mbps for $100/month for decades.

Why are you feeding that stupid troll? When the ignore function came in he was one of the first put on it by most everyone. When it's restored it'll be the same. Jesus, we need that back.

And no, if the internet ended tomorrow it would be a rough adjustment but it'd happen. For a great many people around the globe the internet still doesn't exist. And even here there are plenty who don't use it or use it infrequently. Shit my brother is a total luddite. Doesn't even have an email account. Once in a blue moon he'll look at a sports site on his wife's tablet but that's it.

There would be upsides to the internet disappearing too, you know.

I'm really liking this new season of Vikings, but damn that Blood Eagle was brutal to watch and not even all that graphic. Who was the sick bastard that ever came up with that as a way to kill someone?

Uh, the Vikings?

Don't be fatuous. I very obviously meant the individual that came up with it.

'You know, that guy really pissed me off. What would be a good way to kill him? Oh I know, flay the skin off his back, hack his ribs off his spine with a hatchet, snap them open, then pull his lungs out an put them on his shoulders. That sounds about right.'

It's up there with....

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, 'You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done. - George Carlin

They didn't have to re-release the classics, you know... If it weren't Gearbox, you'd have a mobile remake instead (these guys were bidding on the IP, also). I doubt they're overly concerned with throwing money at the remastering when they could be putting that into the inevitable sequel.

Do it right, or don't do it at all.
