    Re: Re: Also ...

    I hate that shithole venue.
    there isn't enough bathrooms, its way too hot, and it smells like ASS, not to mention their beer - sucks!

    Steve I'm highly disappointed!?! I don't want to go to parties because they are there.

    the right answer;

    BEST PARTY VENUE: Summerside Pavillion Baby :D - sweet spot!

    Are you insane man?!?

    Unless part of the date includes you holding your dates hair back while she pukes her guts out due to the revolting food.

    Re: Re: Re: Also ...

    I had a great time at Steamwhistle and I loved the spot but I have to agree with you on Sunnyside, that one slipped my mind...sweet RnB parties here we come...I can see Sunnyside right now looking west from up here...

    Jeezus am I getting torn up here...

    Actually daddy I've had more than one very successful date at Citron. The food has always been excellent although the last time I went in Feb. they had taken the Soba Noodles off the menu which was very disappointing....the service has always been good, an above average wine list, good ambience, beautiful patio in the back for outdoor dining, reasonably priced, cool location and Gypsy Co-op next door for after dinner drinks...I'll definitely keep going back and keep recommending it

    Didn't mean to tear you a new asshole steve - I'm just commenting from my one horrid experience there. The appetizers were only passable and the entrees were both so poorly cooked that we had to send both back.

    To boot, the service was slow and the place was filled with ladybugs, which didn't really add to the evening "if there's ladybugs, what about aphids and flies *ack*".

    After that night, I'll never go back....

    of all the things that you could say to insult me, hinting that i date girls that are too OLD is probably the very last thing that i would have expected.
