Re: “Napper Tandy's

I am part outraged and embarrassed for Napper Tandy's. I have heard of this place forever, supposedly one of the MUST Go places if ever in Raleigh's Glenwood Ave Restaurant Row. So yesterday while at an event in the area, my wife and I went to 'da Nappers. I expected an unforgettable experience, and I got one I did not expect.
We made our way downstairs to the Pub. Nothing exceptional except the place was wall to wall tv's (not a bad thing) with loads of different sports events on.
But then it was time to order. My wife got an Irish Whiskey on the rocks, and it came out timely... in nothing but a plastic 8 oz cup... and cost $7.50!
Drinks aside, I decided to order the Fish -n- Chips, my wife went with the Shepards Pie and I was curious and got the Bangers and Mash to take home
My fish was more burnt breading than fish, and forget about cocktail sauce.... you only get tartar as they dont even have cocktail sauce.
The fries... what a joke! Stale, undercooked... definitely fresh out of the freezer. All this for like $12?!
My wife's Sheppards pie was more mashed potatoes than meat and the mashed potatoes tasted watery and no salt, pepper, butter, nothing!. I am certain the mashed potatoes were fresh because it had a chunk of undercooked potato in it. GROSS. This ran I think $13. You gotta be kiddin me!
Then there was the bangers & mash. Mashed potatoes must have come from the same batch.... watery and not a stitch of seasoning to it.. The bangers, what an effing joke. Little more than cocktail weenies.
Obviously this is a pub and they do not concentrate a lot on food. They seem to want to focus more on frozen food fastly made than actually good food reasonably priced.

Napper Tandy's 'repuketation' will be forever in my mind. Those that go to Napper Tandy's, dont go for the food. Go for the sports pub, go for the atmosphere, go for the booze. But stay away from the food.

Re: “Jack and Jill is Adam Sandler's new dumpster fire

It is always good to have an escape from reality in this day. And who better to provide escape than the Pied Piper of non-reality that is Adam Sandler. Come on.... Billy Madison? Not oscar worthy for sure. Punch Drunk Love; Seriously? Happy Gilmore, Spanglish, 50 first dates, Chuck and Larry, Zohan, Click, Deeds, Waterboy, Nicky.... the list goes on. Sure, some of these are cult (and my)favorites, but none award worthy. What do they all have in common? Escapism from the crappy reality. We all need such an escape from time to time. And luckily, Sandler puts one out every 1.5-2 years! lol
