In Topic: The Comings and Goings of FW Restaurants

Yes.  Another fan of Pacific Table here.

 

Last time we went there they were packed and we had no reservation.  They asked if we wanted to sit at the bar and we said yes and it actually worked out pretty well; we chatted with the two other couples on either side of us and had a very pleasant meal.

It didn't hit so quickly they didn't have time to react.  The warnings were out early in the week.  My mom did her shopping on Monday based on the predictions of what would hit Thursday.

I will be there.


In Topic: Kroger and Albertsons Plan To Merge

16 November 2022 - 03:30 PM

Tweet; agrees with my earlier assertion.

 

NEW: A former VP of Whole Foods lays out why the Kroger/Albertsons mega-merger is a travesty and could even be criminal.

 

The massive new grocery chain will have near-monopoly control in major cities. Food prices will go up & workers’ wages will go down.

 

The FTC must block it.


In Topic: At-grade railroad crossings: closures, risks, and policy

16 November 2022 - 08:09 AM

Again, anecdotal, but even if the city does not have a legal liability, they may still, by policy, pay a settlement.  For instance, when a water main broke and sprayed not just water, but pavement and rocks on my roof, the city paid to cover my insurance deductible, even though state law says that a city is not liable for damage from water main breaks (and literally every correspondence from them had a statement to that effect).

 

 

Who knows... maybe someone might sue claiming their is too much ready access to the tracks, but if they can show a pattern of reducing the number of crossings they can counter that claim.
