Re: “It's Tasting Better Out East

Well...Kayos Dinnerhouse does technically sit to the West of 3rd St. :) I don't think it helps that it's flanked by an all-asphalt (no landscaping) drive-up style parking lot and an Econo Lodge. That says nothing of the quality of the food, but I'd wager it has a little to do with the lack of consideration as "fine dining." Atmosphere and ambiance go a long way.

Taylor's was awesome and cheap, but still didn't make it in that same general area. The Hideaway is just a few blocks away, but being tucked back a bit in the trees off 3rd street helps a lot with making it feel less like a laundromat.

The east side is also home to the original Pilot Butte, and while not necessarily gourmet, it's good enough to have spawn a west side location (which, in my humble opinion, offers a more relaxed and enjoyable meal experience).

I also am happy to have a Baldy's on this side, and the Phoenix passes muster as a decent place for a meal and a drink, but Worthy is the absolute best thing to happen to east side food since I've been in the area.

I've dined (and imbibed) at Worthy on several occasions now, and I can tell you it's been superb every time. I can't say the same thing for any other brewpub in town, save 10 Barrel.

Re: “Hoods In The Woods

There seems to be a lot emotion here (as noted by Dean), and not a whole lot of fact. I don't claim to know much about the situation, but if what I hear on the news is accurate, then the kid didn't go out with "little to eat." KTVZ reported that he went out with "just 2 cups of granola," which is actually quite a lot of food (near 1000 calories). Additionally, while a 40lb pack is fairly heavy, a healthy 16 year old should be able to handle that fine. My guess is that something else was amiss here. It's only a feeling, not a fact, but the paragraphs in question aren't exactly fact-filled. I suppose that's part of the appeal of a section called "WTF." It's only a rant. Hopefully my comments don't seem disrespectful to the deceased. It's just that a lot people are treating the SageWalk folks and the parents as guilty until proven innocent.
