Re: “Any 'Wich Way

NY Deli put it right in their ad, Dine-in Only I assumed, therefore, if the restaurant didnt say that, you could order your sandwich to go. Stopped at both Beauvine and The Camel and neither one would honor the offer at the special price. I get that they want to make money on sides and drinks, but just include restrictions on the original offer. BTW, we got a great wrap at Sticks with no problem.

Re: “A True Champion

I was there. It was a great morning, a great celebration, but I did wonder at the time why all the second-hand praise for Council woman Gray instead of the actual honor of speaking to the assembled. I also felt the mayor was definitely grandstanding, speaking much louder than anyone else ( so much so I had to cover my ears) and acting more like a game show host than a dignitary.
I loved the composition of the crowd young, old, families, individuals, Black and White all united in their spirit of celebration. And not a negative voice in the crowd. A few unpleasant letters in the Richmond Times-Dispatch the next day, but it wouldnt be Richmond without those old reactionaries.
Now lets see if the city can go beyond window dressing and work together for the good of the entire community.

Re: “VMFA Purchases Historic Kehinde Wiley Monument Based on Confederate Statue

Why is there no photograph of the actual sculpture? I keep seeing the same 3 pictures, including a painting. Has the sculpture not been created yet?

Re: “Richmond Grocery Aftershocks From the Martin's-Publix Deal

My son lives in Gainesville, FL and shops at Publix. When we visit, I compare prices to our Richmond stores (Martin's and Kroger) and find Publix's to be higher. Also, surprisingly, the produce is definitely higher in price. (a pineapple $2.99 at Martin's, $4.99 at Publix) Somehow I thought the sunshine state would use more local produce but I saw no indication of that.
I agree their bakery and deli is topnotch.

Re: “Vantage Points: The Best Places in Richmond to Watch the Bike Race

Pay $10 to watch the bikes leave from Lewis Ginter? Where is the drama in that? Especially when Kings Dominion is free on the day the racing begins there.

Re: “Game Plan

"So you don't feel like -- I don't want to use the word bungled, but -- do you feel like you could have handled it better?

Absolutely not. In fact, I feel very good about the fact that we have a vision on the table for the city of Richmond. "

Typical. Those who do not learn from their mistakes are destined to repeat them. Or as we used to say about my father, "Often in error but never in doubt."

Re: “Legal Stylings

I wish the missus would get a trim. With her current do, she looks like a Barbie doll.
