Re: “Rock and Rye knocks colds out

As a child I had asthma and bronchitis all the time and when it was really bad my mom would heat up rock and rye until it was really hot and would pour it into a shot glass and make me drink it. I would cry and it would burn going down but it would loosen up all the yucky flemm. Even now and then I buy a bottle of R&R and think about mom.

Re: “Woodlands Offers Indian Vegan and Vegetarian in East Charlotte Strip Mall

In fact, Jason, I am one of those people who lives right near Woodlands. If you are one of those people, too, then we're neighbors! :)
I'm sorry my discussion of the location came off to you as kvetching; actually, I was letting the vast majority of Charlotteans (not just people who live uptown) who don't live in my area of East Charlotte know that although Woodlands may be farther away than most restaurants, the food is worth the drive. Clearly, that's not an issue for me (I can walk to Woodlands), but for those folks who live in almost any other area of Charlotte, it *is* an issue.
But you're absolutely right: I could have spent more space describing the food.
Thanks for writing.

Re: “Woodlands Offers Indian Vegan and Vegetarian in East Charlotte Strip Mall

Woodlands is indeed a fantastic restaurant. However, not everybody in Charlotte lives in the uptown area. In fact, a lot of folks live right near Woodlands. Perhaps the author could have done less kvetching about the location & used those two paragraphs to instead talk about the food.

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

The Neely's?? What a display of pure manure. So much crap to pile on there mediocre recipes. I did love Aaron McCargo & had high hopes for him but if FN wanted him, they would have worked him in anywhere. I was excited with Eddie, they didn't do anything to glorify his assesets or smile, How Sunny Anderson is still on FN is shocking to me. Her recipes are from a $1 store cookbook. Her personality flips & flops depending on the guest. She is fake to me. Does anyone else notice that when Marcella is gone that Katie doesn't really like Sunny. ..The men play the go between. I do know ya'll are hating on Katie to much.. she is the real deal..Cute as a bug & beautiful..She's a country girl & pure as gold..Back off my Katie!!

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.

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