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.
