Re: “Hokkaido Seafood Buffet

We are full aware that when you go eat somewhere if the food is bad or the product not supplied is as the following explanation most reputable restaurants will send a responsible person to at least apologize but i like to share our experience at this restaurant with bullet points 1. First of all the is a buffet style all you can eat which is typical with oriental restaurants which most people has visited at least once in their life 2. this is no cheap at least $20 per person however a small sign at entrance not visible hand written says anything over 7 crab legs charge is $1 per leg please notice that the crab legs are the smallest and thinnest we you have ever seen. 3. we like crab legs and shrimp that's why this place was selected we figured high price probably equals to good product and service 4. Went to get crab legs to our surprise just about 4-5 thin legs buried in hot water was there had to wait 10-15 minutes 5. Upon getting the 7 LEGS returned to the table to find out there is no meat in it, yes just a flimsy skinny leg but absolutely Zero meat we said well lets get the waitress, which came over with disbelieve has all the unbroken empty shells including pincers ( if that is what they are called) are empty, she say go get some more, well there very little out so another wait in the meanwhile ate some peel and eat shrimp so my family the same. 6. finally more crab legs are out went through he same procedure with same results no meat in it at all, now they call the person supposedly to be in charge ironically same guy the greeted at door, very hard to understand but the issues was that he would not let us leave without more tries of the crab legs so we were in a way sequestrated in the place, i nicely asked him three time but than he says come to desk speak to manager so I went. 7. Everyone there was speaking what i think was Chinese and did not really explained what was going on made me feel uncomfortable as i think some other individuals under same situation would be, the customer service experience was bad to say at least, the manager looked at me with a smirk on his face and said quote "just eat rest of food its ok and pay" !! at that point i got upset but i kept my cool i asked the 3 waitresses which witness the crab leg but all sudden couldn't speak any more English but the entire outcome was what I think Chinese language, the waitresses were dismissed and left with head down. 8. Now the greeter and this other oriental lady said go back to your table quote'' we cook a batch of crab legs just for you" please note we are a family of 5 and the rest have picked a couple things but I asked for them to stop eating until we sort this out 9. new batch came in steaming hot with hot water pouring out still, for all of you that have had crab legs before you know now its like bending a piece of rubber same results and situation getting worse, i told them that i just wanted to leave greeter guy said quote " just stay we give discount" how much you want off? We didn't wear our best clothing that night but certainly wasn't looking for a freebie or discount, by this time most people would flipped out but i was there for a fun night and didnt want to set bad example 10. Now as a matter of principal I told the Mgr to call the police and make a record of the incident, there are many other details pertinent to this but in any event the Police came and after explained what happened they said that its not the first time that they have been there. 11. My Bill was over $100 but they gave me $15 off since my son did not eat at all So I paid and tipped the waitress but I just wanted to share with everyone what happened and the very poor care of this people that work there with no quality control of what they serve as they made us feel that was or fault and they have no responsibility as stated by them of the frozen crab legs that come in, we would never ever go back there as if there is no way to check the food coming in im we are deeply worried about what can happen next, I would be aware as crab legs with no meat must be a cause of something going wrong never again

Re: “Pittsburgh wants your input on its new bike master plan

Pittsburghs bike trails and bike lanes are great as far as they go, but many more connections are needed to make a complete network. Did you ever try to bike from Squirrel Hill to the Strip, for example? I do it, but its not yet safe or easy enough that Id take a kid on that ride. All neighborhoods should be kid-safe for biking.

Re: “Pittsburgh wants your input on its new bike master plan

Pittsburgh has 2% bike commuters and ~20 miles of bike lanes. What % of San Francisco commuters are cyclists? I'd wager it's more than 2. No need to give an extremely small % of commuters a disproportionate amount of street, especially when the design of the bike lanes is dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists. PAT buses have to weave in an out of bike lanes. Cyclists fly through red lights without any reflective gear or lights on. Focus on the what makes sense Mayor Peduto, not the low hanging fruit that please the vegetarians

Re: “Forgive Us Our Debts

Being self-employed is very challenging, however, your income can fluctuate, and there's always the chance that it could sink so low that you can not afford to pay your bills on-time, i totally lost it and it hurt my credit so bad, my score dropped to 563 before i took matters into my own hands by contacting a professional credit repair hacker at [ (408) 909 2650 OR pyramideye.hack@outlookcom]. He cleared my report showing a list of inquiries, collections, existing debts & late payments and upgraded my score to 788 within 72 hours very affordable. I can't thank them enough because of their help as I own my own business now and I promised to take my time to publish this for them when i get results. Obviously my credit is good and i am impressed.

Re: “Speculators have been holding onto hundreds of properties in Uptown for years. What does that mean for the neighborhood’s future?

Because I know this article will continue to pop up on Google searches from people wondering what the hell Bob Eckenrode is up to and how many different LLCs he hides his business dealings under: he now seems to have another LLC in addition to BRGS and JCWS. The new one is Lare Realty, LLC.

As of October 2018, he's still at it, buying even more houses in Uptown. I fear for the future of our neighborhood.

Re: “Hundreds rally in Downtown Pittsburgh calling for transgender rights and protections

Trans people or whatever the fuck that is.... have the same rights as all males and females. There are no other made up genders that can force on everyone else. If they choose to live in a delusion then thats their problem.
