Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

Also, Crawford's letter posted on his site is spot on. Too many bums want to write about food but have no qualifications to do so. These aren't the seasoned vets who did these reviews professionally and did their homework, these are bloggers who want to be a big fish in a small pond.

Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

It's quite possible that all the hit pieces Grayson Currin did on behalf of the Indy is what will do you in when it comes to reviewing places in the future. It is Crawford's right to decline your seating, you weren't there just to eat like other guests. Buck up already.

Re: “Puppy Bowl: One Dog's Search for the Triangle's Best Dog Ice Cream

But was it vegan ice cream, Tina? Shame on you for promoting places that use products stolen from animals!

Re: “First, Learn to Lose: A Carolina Panthers Adolescence

Spoken like a true textbook bandwagon fan. Bored with the Hurricanes because they weren't winning anymore, and now suddenly interested in the Panthers who were suddenly successful, how coincidental. You gloat around town like a true blue die hard fan who lives and breathes Panthers football, who watches every single game, even during losing seasons, but you're not that dude. You're a fraud, a very pronounced try-hard who wanted to look cool and talk trash like the brash Panthers did. You were ironically "too busy" to post about them last year, and probably got mildly interested when they miraculously made it into the playoffs after posting one of the most abysmal records held by a playoff team in NFL history. You really only started really riding hard for them and posting Panthers selfies once they were the last standing undefeated team like the rest of the assembling bandwagon did. Don't try to act like this Panthers love has been drilled into your head since you were a kid. Isn't your whole hipster MO to make fun of people who "discover" things once they become mainstream? You can hop off that bandwagon now, you looked really pathetic being on it anyway. Peyton's eating pizza and Von Miller is holding the SB MVP trophy Cam automatically thought was going to be his. Back to reality.

Hope they have an all vegan menu for Grayson, otherwise I'm sure we'll hear him whining about it.

Re: “Sorry, New Yorker: You missed the Triangle’s best Eastern-style “barbecue”

Ok, we get you're a vegetarian, Grayson. There's a way to plug FK and talk about their mock barbecue and how great and important it is to vegetarians in order to experience a particular style of barbecue without eating meat, but this approach isn't it. You can't look down on "some Yankee" who lacks knowledge of NC barbecue by turning around and... talking up non-hog barbecue. It's almost laughable you'd be that ironic. People come here for hog barbecue, that's what we're known for. Get over it.
