Re: “As Charlotte institutions fell by the wayside in 2016, Open Kitchen remains... well, open

In the late 1960s, my mother sold advertising for WIST, and the Open Kitchen was one of her clients. She loved the Kokenes Brothers, and took my brother and I there to eat quite often. I was enchanted with the little jukeboxes at each booth.

Re: “You won't see Vic the Chili Man in Uptown this winter, but he's staying busy

Cooked along side Vic and Fat Matt at Blues, Brews, and BBQ years ago. Great guys and, oh yeah, they won the amateur division.

Upon returning from a trip to Israel, I asked to stop at the Open Kitchen for some hometown fare! Yummy! My first taste of pizza was a leftover from my brother's date here in the late 60's!

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

What is wrong with people besides the fact they are ignorant. The Neeley's show was great. Their personal life was none of my business. Big Daddy's recipes are fantastic. It is amazing what jealousy brings out in people. I am always excited to see an African-American that steps up to the challenge to make life better for themselves and their family. Please do not think I do not know what I am talkin about. I am Caucasian and from Alabama. I know how some of these precious people have been treated. By the way I hate to shock you to the point of a stroke. Did you know all of us have some African-American and Caucasian in our blood line. The plantation "masters" were not always nice. They were jerks.
Know what I mean.
Better get with some of that soul food. It might give you a better disposition. Might also teach you to talk without using bad language.
Give me a break, Paula Deen had to leave because she said something that comes natural to her generation. By the way, check out the times she had wonderful people on her show that you now call names. Hope you have ask God to forgive you. You think it is "Hot" in their kitchen.

Re: “Where to find it: Vlasic Hot Jalapeño Slices

Love these things and of coarse, WalMart stopped carrying them and there are no other grocery stores in the area that I have found that do.....going to start ordering off of the internet.

Re: “Beer tap handles are not items to decorate with

Geez, tough crowd! I came across this article while searching for "repurposing beer tap handle" ideas for a Christmas present I'm considering making for a craft beer lover. (For example, using a favorite liquor/bottle to create a personalized lamp. Though there are lots of repurposed lamps for sale that look more like they're meant for a college dorm, repurposing anything can be very cool, artful, even profitable, if you pay attention to the details.) OK, so anyway, I found this article interesting, and I'm certain there is validity regarding the topic. Regardless, I appreciated the insight - as sometimes it's simply a matter of reading an article like this for folks to be encouraged to behave accordingly. I for one, value understanding more about those cool, hip, "decorations" used to pour my favorite brews. To the person who asked what to do with one he has?? If it doesn't need to be returned to its rightful owner, I'd be happy to create something cool with it. ;)

Re: “Three questions for Stephen Deutsch of Teriyaki Madness

No doubt in my mind about the quality of the franchise or the food being anything less than excellent! I can't wait to come and experience it first-hand, and I'm sure some more great reviews will soon follow! I know Stephen to be a very driven and passionate person, especially when it comes to the art of "chowing down"!

Re: “Three questions for Stephen Deutsch of Teriyaki Madness

Stephen's the "food master"! No doubt about that!
When I first tried Teriyaki Madness I was expecting a typical fast food experience... what I got was a huge surprise! It was fresh, tasty and quick... all great components for a busy lifestyle! Awesome for lunch too... my out of town business associate loved it.
Teriyaki Madness is a delightful surprize for quick quality food!

Re: “Three questions for Stephen Deutsch of Teriyaki Madness

I trust Mr. Deutsch when it comes to food. They don't call him Big D for nothing. Sounds like a great concept. Must try!

Re: “Getting crabby

This event, at Unknown Brewing and run by Carolina Food Market, was a total disaster.

Re: “Is good and cheap wine too much to ask for?

Not at all. There are plenty of cheap wines under $10 that are great. If you are looking at it from a wine investment perspective and not for drinking, is best to read up on the subject at www.vin-x.com

Re: “Three questions with Amanda Zullo, Pop Up Produce founder

Oh Amanda!! You are amazing!! And this is so important. It's great because not only to the benefits mentioned in the article, these kids are actually "enjoying" this new positive activity or may become hobby and it's also rewarding -- teaches discipline, patience and can be therapeutic!

Re: “Larkin Duran is keeping the reins at Lupie's Cafe

We know her well at the Huntersville location. We would always take our son to eat and get a friendly hello from her and all the staff. I'm sure she will do great!
