Re: “Ghosts of Barrington

This article discusses the retail landscape of Barrington Street without quoting a single business owner. And the question of why currently viable retail spaces still go unrented is completely ignored. Are the rents too high? How can landlords justify sitting on an empty space, rather than leasing it for less? Surely there is some demand for downtown retail space. These vacancies are difficult to justify, from a business perspective--is there some hidden benefit, like writing them off as losses?

Re: “Best Shawarma

The purple french-fry shaped things are not pickled beets. Ever notice that they're not purple all the way through? They're turnips, dyed purple with beet juice.
It is perfectly normal to put hot sauce on a shawarma. It is done all over the shawarma-eating world. And speaking of french fries, they're a standard garnish, too. They'll put a few in at Venus if you ask nicely.

Re: “Big Gottingen Street News: Backpackers hostel, Alteregos cafe poised for major expansion

To be nonplussed is to be perplexed to the point of inaction. This is not an accurate description of Strum's state of mind, according to the details of the story.

Re: “What do you want to see in the new library?

books. lots and lots of books; innovative, landmark architecture; a cafe; a proper theatre/lecture hall; designated "quiet" areas; secure carrels for laptop users; an interactive database and physical display space where users can post reviews and recs, amazon-style; an art gallery; great bathrooms; a drop-in centre for downtown panhandlers; an outdoor reading/study garden.
