As opposed to one of those conservative, "we don't serve your kind" sort of places.

Those places are easily filtered out though.  Look for Fox News on the TV.

Just had to doosh up an honest inquiry? I knew Conan went there, hardly a left wing, bed wetter. I wanted to know if the place catered and counted on a certain clientele. If it did, could it or the restaurant's concept be successful elsewhere.

What the hell is one-sided about finding out about this place? Was the "hipster" comment just too close to home or something? And of all people to comment about others with one-sided viewpoints, my gosh. And I'm telling Hoss about your ad hominem--but to be fair I'll let you tell him what that fallacy means first.

Of course your left wing bed wetter comment was fair and balanced.

It must be difficult to view everything as completely liberal and conservative.

What? They put avocados on sandwiches? The restaurant must be a left wing hideout.

You attack anything you think is different than the way you think it should be.  Like a crazed terrier.

So when you post something about a group of people, it's easy to think you're attacking the group.

I agree with you, I am one sided.  I look at the extremes from both side with a cocked eyebrow.  I think you should move more center like I thought Teatownclown should move more center.

MC and I stopped at a Subway one time while traveling. 

MC asked: “Is the avocado fresh?” 

“Oh yes ma’am, we opened the can just this morning!”

I went and was completely underwhelmed. Service and food were mediocre but the prices didn't reflect it. I can have better food and service for less money at several places around town.

And therein lies the problem you run into when your place is out of the way and it’s under-promoted.  You had a bad or mediocre experience so you didn’t return.  I’m quite certain you weren’t alone.  With their price points, it needed to be spot-on every time.

If that had happened the first time MC and I went, we would never have returned, or maybe given it one more shot and if that failed we would have been done with it.  

What places are you enjoying these days? We are now looking for another regular hang-out so I’m soliciting opinions.

I was a fan of their food, beer selection, service and ambiance.  Brian even served me at the bar on occasion.  But, didn't go there often as it is pretty far off my normal path.

I would say that a restaurant in that location needs to be appealing to it's surrounding neighborhood.  A true neighborhood pub if you will.  OR, have a concept so different and so great that is becomes a destination.
