*ICK* I ate there a few times. Then I got sick.

Besides that, I've a personal thing against Hungreez. See, it used to be a
place called Jerry's Deli; a perfect corner store market/sundries/sandwich
shop that really fit the feel of the area. Steve(?) bought the place and
turned it into Hungreez, and slowly but surely turned his back on the local
community by 1st removing all the market stuff (thereby making a trip to
just get toilet paper and some milk more than a walk), then by not caring
about the food. It was good at one time, but it turned whay bad. I hope for
your stomach's sake it has turned around some. I don't go to Hungreez =)

Home game: Monica's Aca y Alla is 'upscale Mexico City cuisine' --basically
fancy-schmancy mesican food. It's good food. The owner (Monica) is a
post-operation lesbian. Kinda a local figure (her story as a business-person
and otherwise is common knowledge around here, for equally complimentary
reasons). Wednesday's is $.50 margaritas, and an 'official' stop of the gay
club circuit. Friday and Saturday nights are as loud as any dance club with
Chilo (flamenco/spanish jazz cover band) and his ego. You know how bad his
ego is? The music is so loud you can't even think, and he *refuses* to let
it be any less. It's fun once, but go twice and you've been had. Same music,
hell it's almost the same order. He can play a mean guitar, but yer right,
his voice could use some work (never really noticed though). Wednesday's are
much more fun, for people watching alone. Good brunch place, too ...

Beth used to work there (been two years now), I know it all too well
(including some stuff that would get their liquor license revoked) --I still
find it laughable that the band plays the same thing each week. It is so
loud in there when they're playing that you have to rely on your server's
ability to lip read ...

Those looked like they were gonna be nice when they were building them out;
how you like your neighbors?

Well, if we can talk Seth into driving down thar, there's New Amsterdam
Coffeehaus, with beer, liquor, and dern good coffee =)
