Re: “Debbie Gold opens her Red Door Grill in Leawood

I was there a few weeks ago. We ate out on the patio, which was lovely. The new fencing makes it feel more isolated than when it was Patty O'Quigly's. Back then it felt like a suburban strip mall, now it's more like an urban patio (at least that's what it felt like to me). Our server was a little green, but very friendly and helpful.

We shared the grilled artichoke, which was really delicious. I had the spinach/grilled peach salad, which was good, but not fantastic. The grilling didn't really seem to do that much for the peaches and none of the other ingredients shone. My mom had the caesar salad which she liked, and the mustard croutons were particularly tasty.

I'm not in a huge hurry to go back. There are limited vegetarian options, and I didn't love it. That said, if I was looking to share a bottle of wine and some appetizers on a nice day in the area, it would give La Bodega (one of my favorite restaurants) a run for its money.

Re: “Masturbation joke in Columbia yearbook leads to criminal charges for student

I think it's outrageous that they'd bring criminal charges for this. Serious academic discipline is warranted, including being barred from graduation or a failing grade in Yearbook. And, if she wanted, I'd have no problem with Mastain suing her for defamation/emotional distress. But the criminalization of students is getting completely out of hand in our country. This was a prank, and should be treated as such.

Also, don't most media outlets have a policy of not printing the name of minors accused of a crime? You not only printed it, but made it a tag.

Re: “Kansas Court rules people could be busted for having out-of-state medical marijuana

@Krymsun -- That isn't how the Full Faith and Credit Clause is understood to work by our courts. Rather, you get a judgment in one state, under the laws of that state, and, if you meet the requirements for the Full Faith and Credit Clause, you can then bring that judgment to the court of any other state and have them enforce it (for example, by garnishing wages or levying property).

The Full Faith and Credit Clause has been found not to apply to judgments in criminal matters (although states can ask one another to extradite criminals).

Re: “Who makes the best cup of iced tea in the city?

I had two glasses of some pretty excellent raspberry peach black tea at Mud Pie today, but for quality and sheer selection, I have to go with Tea Drops.

Re: “Should restaurants call out no-shows on Twitter?

Wouldn't it be better for them to Tweet that they have a big opening so that folks like Zeemanb can get that last-minute table.

Re: “Do you tip less if you eat at the bar?

At bars I never tip less than a dollar a drink, and if I have food I never tip less than 20% of the tab, usually rounded up to the nearest dollar.

The only difference is that if I sit down to a meal and have my own tab, I won't tip less than $5.00 to a server, even if I only get a $7.00 lunch special. At the bar I go back and forth on that and sometimes will tip the greater of 20% of the whole bill or 20% of the food plus a dollar per drink, which sometimes comes out to less than $5.00.

Cold pizza. Enough said.
