Re: “Mother's ruin

Hi Lauren,

I think this is a very well written piece and you're a knowledgeable writer and foodie. However, I think you're missing the forrest for one magical tree: the greatness of being an all gin bar. What about the cool decor? The food? The friendly staff and great service? The actual quality of their gin and non-gin drinks. Great pricing structure (I believe all cocktails are $8, beers $4 or something simple and reasonable like that)?

I went on opening night and loved it. If having 5 out of 9, vs 9 out of 9, cocktails made of gin is the rub, I can certainly handle it. I see what you mean about you mean about upping our game or something, but I say "who really cares? This place is great!"

Still, it was a pleasure to read.

Re: “The Picture Police

Really, what an epic waste of talent this piece is. Losing the "right" to bring my detachable lens camera to one (or two if I'm going to both fests) weekend in a city park is a terribly small price to pay for the existence of these events.

Please, stick to covering things that matter like your excellent coverage of the parking meter debacle or our city's inability to get a recycling program buttoned up.
