Delicate Blossom:  Since you are not a senior, you don't understand the dietary restrictions that many who live in senior facilities have.  Too much salt, spices and other things are to be considered when feeding seniors.  Therefore, it generally means bland and often very soft fuuds.  Your time will come...so, live it  up NOW!  LOL

MC:  Foie Gras!!!~do it now while you are young and your metabolism can take it.  Trust me, animal organs are deadly for cholesterol as I now have to watch what I indulge in.  BTW, the South Premium Mall is enclosed and air conditioned, so they are easier to walk through than the North side one, especially during the heat of the day.

@Myong @Annoddah_Dave MC:  Yes, large bag of popcorn for this one.  Saw it in Titan format.  DW did a good job in creating his own version of Robert McCall.  The only thing that was quirky was when he used the powder actuated nail gun without a safety...and one handed at that!  Normally you can only fire these if you unlock the safety by pushing the barrel against a hard surface.  Similar to Lethal Weapon sequel.  Liked that he used public transportation rather than a Jaguar as in the TV series.  Made his low key existence more believable.  It will be tough to not think about this flick whenever using a wine corkscrew.

@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave I vaguely recall that but for the life of me I can't remember where it was before they built that beautiful restaurant.  Things I remember were the kimono clad waitresses, Canlis Special Salad, and a car valet that had an incredible memory to match you with your car (he did not give you a token and knew which car was yours)

Delicate Blossom:  Went there shortly after they opened.  Fuud was guud but very few peeps for lunch.  They don't advertise much and rely on word of mouth.  It's kind of a hidden gem but for that neighborhood, prices may be a bit high.  Not too many students can afford some of their stuff as it is near the UH.  You're right, parking is pretty generous until your followers "slam" the place after reading this post!  LOL

MC:  It takes talent to write and act to make a film successful.  It seems a lot of US films are so formulaic just to punch out some dough for the company.  Even the actors are really no more than merely prostituting themselves...slam bam thank you ma'am!  They need the dough just like the rest of us and lower their standards and price accordingly just to make it through the day.

Chef Ed:  Sorry, I did not realize how debilitating your injury was, as I wondered why you were in the photo profession.  There is a saying that "Those who can, do, and those who can't, teach".  You your case it seems like you "can't" due to physical limitation more than anything but your passion and desire is still there.  I know you do work for Highway Inn trying to get back in the groove.  In more ways than one I guess, you still "knead the dough", so I say go for it.  I think with your experience, you will attract more than enough interns who can do the physical stuff for you and actualize your creativity.  Let us know what is happening and will come out to support you!
