Re: “Hundreds sign petition to keep Caribbean Twist open

i love Caribbean Twist! If you have any email addresses or links for the Planning & Development and local reps, I will gladly email them.

Or, you can just relocate so you're closer to my apartment.

Re: “More like 'Canadian Sheep' winter jacket

i have a Canada Goose jacket. It's incredible. The best purchase I made last year. It keeps me really warm and has all kinds of pockets. The functionality of the jacket is worth the money, although I bought it on ebay for a few hundred bucks...

Re: “Since when did a purse pay bus fare?

why don't you just ask them to move it? i usually have a bag on the bus and even when i pick it up as people are walking by, nobody ends up sitting down. so after 5 times moving it, i just leave it there. use your words and be polite.

Re: “NSCAD closes Dawson Printshop

i volunteered at the Dawson Print Shop for a while and I gotta say it's a real gem. this is one of the unknown treasures of Halifax and the type collection is not only vast but full of some really interesting typefaces. in a digital world such rarities should be embraced, not closed down.

Re: “I'm going to LOSE IT!!

i disagree. you should vote. if you don't believe any of the candidates are worth of your vote, you should abstain by marking a huge X across all of the candidates names, or leave it blank. if enough people did this and 80% of the people turned out to vote, then the politicians would start getting the picture... it's when you don't vote at all that you become meaningless and your opinions become moot.

Re: “Students protest against military recruitment at local schools.

I understand the support for the military in NS, but these kids make a really solid point. A school should be a neutral place to learn and if students care to look into the Armed Forces, they can do it on their own time. You can support Canadian troops and still support this action.

I also find it interesting to see parents supporting this as a career choice. The possibility of death does not seem apparent to these people...

We don't let corporate identities like McDonald's into our schools to recruit... this has nothing to do with the Freedom of Speech act. Schools have the right to allow neutral and education-based organizations into their building to recruit, but considering the fact that the Armed Forces is training people to go to war, they should not be considered neutral.

Re: “Q Smokehouse & Southern Barbeque

i went to this place for lunch with some work folk. i'm pretty surprised at the reviews here. I had the 1/2 pork rack of ribs and chicken leg combo. came with potato salad and a cob of corn.

the rack of ribs was great. nicely bbq'd, great sauce and perfect amount of char on it to give it that smoky flavour. the chicken was juicy, with a nice pink ring from the smoking. the potato salad was right on and while the corn on the cob wasn't the most spectacular, but i have a feeling that once it becomes seasonal it'll be a must have item.

the garrison-brewed Q beer was great. I had the brown. perfect compliment to the food.

only issue i have is the lining up cafeteria style for the food. especially annoying if you want to have a second beer. also, it'd be nice if they had a carolina-style mustard sauce too.

otherwise, this place was great. it's pretty new, so i'm hoping it'll get even better as time goes on.
