I've been in control states (Michigan, SC, Washington, etc) and none is as Draconian as Ohio; no one else, restricts 1 free samples and/or giveaway 2.diluted liquor 3 minimum pricing 4 controlled access (wouldn't greater quantity equal more tax revenue?) 5 double taxing local breweries/distilleries 6 restricting importing wine from other states. In Cali, I could buy hard liquor at Rite Aid 7 days a week from opening hour on. Even conservative Missouri is more liberal than Ohio.
despite review, note that chef-driven restaurants that tout "local/seasonal/organic' do NOT serve Ohio ofrtified koolaid wines, nor will you see Ohio wines served outside Ohio, fo rgood reason.
chuckles--really, Cleveland "not that bad'(?) when innocent whites get mugged by Black thugs after St Pat's Day, and how many drive-bys on almost daily basis??
As for Hermes, I almost choked on my coffee--coming from the Bay Area, what about the looting and rioting in Richmond and Oakland by occupy anarchists? that was NOT police over-exaggeration. Or that Ferguson was opportunity for rioting and looting neighborhood, mostly black-owned, stores, so it was not about "protest" but theft without consequences.
rather than allaying fears of neighborhodd, Veysey with his vague, ambiguous comments, just reinforces the justifiiable view that developers are only out for money despite the consequences of gentrification to the neighborhood , no matter how much he;s fawned upon by media including SCene as some savior, by not making sopecifc committment about parking lot, not that verbal promises are as meaningful as paaper (air) they printoed on.
soooo if they serve "no fried food", how are they cooking eggs and bacon??
Nikki--you didn't tell us what Cherek and King "poured" (sic) over their paperwork--was it milk, syrup, what?? Oh, did you mean "pore"? Can't Scene afford dictionary? You're supposed to be professional journalist that know vocabulary!
first, where was Ohio City Inc and Cimperman when all this development was going on? They didn't think there would be parking problem? second Chilcote's comment that 'shoppers need to walk or bicycle" is one of the most arrogant and uninformed condescension I've heard. Most shoppers don't live next store, so how much groceries can one carry on bike? Should an old lady walk blocks in the cold carrying bags? That's such an SF elitist attitude.
