Re: “Halfway Station's new owners make this darling family-run stop a destination in its own right

I've know Autumn and Dan for years, through the local British pub in my old town, I now live In Germany, but can say for sure, that these two love food, family, and are what's good in California, hope to stop by next year!

Re: “Halfway Station's new owners make this darling family-run stop a destination in its own right

The Last Stage West was always a safe place for women and children to use the bathroom, and for decades it was a celebrated spot for acoustic music jam sessions, and for local and national/international touring acts to perform. It's good to see that Ms. King is carrying on the fine tradition of great food and hospitality at The Halfway Station, that was established by the Brittain Family in the 1980s, and continued by Tom Passon until last year.

Re: “Ode to the waiter:Raw truths from an ex-food server

THANK YOU!! I waited table for 12 years, then went on to my career. It was sooooo easy! Waiting tables made everything else ridiculously laid back in comparison.

Re: “Phơ 4 U in Atascadero serves up Vietnam's signature rice noodle soup and sweet pearl tea drinks

No thanks Bietnam.

#NeverForget

Oh, I never will dad.

Btw, countless reviews state the broth is flavorless compared to much more renowned restaurants that serve the same. I only know this because my (Anglo) wife has read the reviews and tried the place 2x but never again.

Signed,
Atascadero resident

Re: “The Cal Poly Creamery is changing things up, and it tastes good

Local state dairy production is a great idea, and lesser known or artisan products are a great idea too. I'll keep my eyes out for the Cal Poly dairy in my grocery store. Cheers

Re: “The Cal Poly Creamery is changing things up, and it tastes good

So much for editing...Cheese is a food group and I can spell competitions.

Re: “The Cal Poly Creamery is changing things up, and it tastes good

I'm so proud to be a Cal Poly SLO grad and cheese is a good group at my house. Cal Poly never ceases to amaze me, especially in competitios. Kudos to all involved in Dairy Sciences...Particularly the cows!
This was a well written article that stayed on topic and peaked my interest!
Thank you,
Stacy A. Montgomery

Re: “Crushin' it: As demand for grapes softens, growers are leaving clusters on the vine, fallowing fields, and pulling out older vines

where did you get your fact that vines take 3-7 years to produce fruit. I have never heard of a vineyard taking 7 years to produce fruit when the industry standard is 3 but could be as early as 2 years or as late as 4.

Re: “Fossil Wine Bar in Atascadero is where you can find your next favorite wine

To someone like me with an extremely strong sense of smell, the overbearing scent of alcohol found in a wine goblet, makes nearly every single wine I've ever tried in 30 years of being of age to do so, unpalatable.

In fact I gave up trying altogether because the harder I tried, the more pretentious the crowd I found myself within. That's not the experience I was ever looking to find. No thanks.

Now, if you don't mind, please point me to the nearest craft brewery. My drink of choice and clearly my level of peeps.

Additionally, as an Atascadero resident, I repeat what I've posted on other local website:

Atascadero is turning into a urban city like Inglewood with booze on every corner.

Those that can't, make or sell booze.

This town needs real jobs not more booze peddlers.

Re: “Stein's seasoned tri-tip comes to downtown Paso Robles

Their hot pastrami sandwich on a perfectly toasted (optional) French Roll (with a little pull instead of the standard Rye) have been worthy of multiple trips up from Atascadero to gnosh. Everything else that has been tried by family, both visiting and by us, quickly disappears off of their serving baskets.

Thanks Steins BBQ!

Re: “Grandma Ingrid teaches people how to make food and build community in Arroyo Grande

Nice, teaching the lost arts. Good for her. Maybe women will realize that when they are older being surrounded by a large family in a warm home you made is better than making power point presentations and having your one kid raised by strangers

Re: “Cheers to nearly five years of putting food (and my foot) in my mouth

We wish you all the best in your new adventure. Your willingness to check out and feature a brand new place in Cambria was just the focus we needed and we still have people come in saying they read about us in New Times! Best to you, Hayley! Love from the crew at Mezzo Italiano to you!!

Re: “Ag history lives, thanks to the Wine History Project of SLO County

I believe Wilmer Tognazzini died a few years back, Wilmer wrote the 100 Years Ago column in the Telegram-Tribune? Or is this a relative? The County History Center first started this wine history project in the early 2000s.

Re: “Ag history lives, thanks to the Wine History Project of SLO County

Looking forward to reading Libbie Agran's interviews with the decedents (deceased winemakers as mentioned previously). Presumably either she or the writer of this article, Hayley Thomas Cain, actually meant descendants. Spell check strikes again.

Re: “'Barrio soul food' at Rosalina heats up Santa Margarita

Just more way overpriced Mexican street food of any other So Cal location south of Ventura.

Some of you need to get out more often beyond SLO. Overpriced does NOT automatically mean good, while very good can be done for a third+ less than $15.00.

This hispanic knows from living in SO CAL, outside of SLO, for all but the last 2 years.

Re: “Dream Big Darling brings women to fore of local wine and spirits industry

Corporate executive ladies meet boozy cat ladies, and why it's a good thing...
"what they want to be when they grow up" How about field hand, crush pad laborer, or forklift driver? Oh wait this is for aspiring upper class women (not working class men who don't deserve any recognition, just mandatory gender relations seminars)

Re: “Dream Big Darling brings women to fore of local wine and spirits industry

OMG when are women going to shut up and just do their jobs instead of needing this endless tirade of back pats for doing what men have done for centuries. HIGHLIGHTING THE FACT THAT YOU ARE WOMEN WHO ARE WORKING IS SEXIST AGAINST MEN WHO WORK CRAP JOBS AND NEVER COMPLAIN.Seriously ladies grow up and shut up.
