Re: “The Yard

@ClevelandRocks Diners across the nation have making melts of all varieties for decades. Plus, just about every major city has a fancy grilled cheese/melt joint. The point is there are lots of places that are serving up delicious lactose-filled creations...just be happy you have one too!

Re: “The Yard

How lazy, this is an obvious rip off of Melt Bar and Grilled.

Re: “Paris 66

Mild as opposed to bold (think chicken vs. duck), but intense vs. bland (think poached chicken vs. roasted).

Re: “Rent the Chicken lets you rent a chicken coop, complete with birds, for your own backyard

Thank you for your concerns, Jen! Our hens are transported very safely and as stress free as possible. Sometimes they even lay in transit! We are very aware of bio security and take strict measures upon return. We are giving people an opportunity to experience backyard chickens without the commitment and without the many other obstacles faced when starting a flock.

Moving hens to a new home can stress them and could result in no egg production for up to three months. You can also purchase nice coops for under $500.00 that will last years to come. However, of there are people participating in this program, good for them. If they return the birds, strict biosecurity measures need to be taken.

Re: “Cole Cafe

I've been a fan of Cole Café for years. It doesn't need to be anything more but what it is - a diner with solid, dependable output, and ensures sure your cup doesn't go empty. The specials sometimes surprise you - like the quiche - and they hit the spot as well.

Re: “The expanded East Liberty state store might augur further improvements

The political coalition against privatization includes more than just allies of the union. For example, it also includes representatives of rural areas where private entities either would not locate a store at all, or would only locate a store with less selection and higher prices. In that sense the state store system is subsidizing those rural areas, and their local representatives do not want to give up those subsidies.

Giant Eagle and other grocery stores can use a certain type of license to sell beer and wine in an attached cafe. I believe all of Wegmans, Weis, Giant, and Sheetz have also done that in one or more stores, and more are looking at it. I believe the main problem, though, is that you have to allow in-store consumption, and that raises all sorts of cost and liability issues which serve as a practical barrier to more grocery stores wanting to do it.

AMEN on privatization. The only thing standing in the way of the system providing more revenue by private ownership of stores is the union for the people who work there. The whole system is a joke. Why can't every grocery store sell beer and wine - only Giant Eagle? Something is wrong here!

Re: “The expanded East Liberty state store might augur further improvements

One needs to ask why it has taken 2 and 3 years to remodel stores if they are doing it in the most efficient way possible? If you doubt look into the Mountaintop store which took 2 years or the one in Lebanon that is well over 3 years.

Of course, at the current rate all the stores won't get done for over 50 years which is longer than it took to move from counter stores to self service (36 years) or to decide to finally take credit cards (15 years).

If you want real modernization you want total privatization.
