Re: “Get Vegucated

Do you randomly pic people, do you visit around the world and show your videos?

Re: “Repeal Day recalls Tampa’s noble experiment

This is a great article! Gary Mormino does a great job of illustrating the politics and the pressures of everyday living for immigrant Americans that created such a vibrant Tampa during Prohibition.

Re: “Disney's Epcot Food & Wine and Universal's Krustyland

The frozen Butter beer at Universal Studios is definitely the way to go. Also I can't wait to see the new Universal hotel opening soon. I love the 1960's feel. We booked for next year and will share some photos as soon as I can on of the new rooms, pool, bowling, should be super cool.

Re: “Sip at Skip’s

Yeah Skips is a great place but you have gotten a lot of info wrong my dear. First of all there has not been real food there for no beans and rice.
Neil Diamond has been out of the jukebox for just as long and there has never been blue moon.

But everything else is just right. It's the best place to get a cold one and mingle with the low key locals.
But one more thing was forgotten to mention besides the awesome bartender Karen, there is also a hottie and sweet former marine whom has been serving there at nights for almost 7yrs now. (Tristan) is by far the best bartender you will find with not only always a kind hand to give but keeping the conversation going.

It sounds like you have enjoyed skips before but you might want to drop back by for some updates and a beer.

Derek: Did you read any of my prior comments where I explained in detail why the sign bothered me? Makes me wonder if you can read.

Re: “Mi Ranchito: Lunch, pets and an oil change

Its amazing, how peple if we ca call it people, dedicate themself to write such trash as above, nevertheless, we at mi RANCHITO, HAVE BECOME MILLIONARE IN THE PERIOD OF (5) YEARS.
WE HAVE TWO LOCATIONS, The pork is the best in town, the petshop store is/was a next door busines irrelevant to the restaurant, whicvh is a family orientated cafe, for family who love clean and healthy food. The facts of Mi Ranchito cafe are contrary to the garbage statements made above by a none educated baster, lier, envious of hard working and propered humans, more power to MI RANCHITO CAFE, AT COLUMBUS AND HAVANA. GEORGE.

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

Ned, parent your children and Scooter won't have a problem with your daughter. Treat her like a princess and let her do whatever she pleases, then well you sir are the problem. Scooter has not banned kids from the restaurant, which makes me wonder why you are so upset by this rule. If your child is not one of the screamers or kids breaking stuff then why are you so concerned?

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

Hi, my name is Skylar and I am 10. Scooter does not hate kids. He took me and my brother in to work with him one day. He is a lot of fun, and very nice. But me and my little brother behave. He even took my brother on a field trip when his teacher was mean. He is a cool guy.

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

If he's trying to turn his business into a bar then that's fine. When I was a kid I went to dinner with my parents all the time, nice restaurants and everything. The difference is I didn't act like an ass when I was little or my dad would whoop my ass.

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

Honestly I never gave it any thought... I've only been to the Indy once or twice and always late at night, so I just never associated it with food... But I'm not sure how that's relevant, I wasn't making any comparisons, I used to take my daughter to Cappy's because she likes pizza. I don't "draw a line" anywhere... Just never happened to think about taking my daughter to the Indy.

Perhaps what you're getting at is that what Scooter's really doing, by inches, is rebranding his place from a neighborhood pizza joint, where one might naturally assume kids were welcome, to a bar, where kids are not welcome. I suspect that's correct. If you're saying, "Well, ya know, Cappy's is really a bar, people shouldn't be taking kids there anyway," I say everything about the place says daytime pizza joint -- except the nasty sign up front.

What's REALLY weird is when I did not understand your question and asked for clarification, someone "disliked" that. Huh?

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

I was just curious where you drew the line between bar and restaurant.

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

I agree with everything Ned said on the top comment here. We no longer eat in person at Cappy's, and only occasionally get take out from there. From my observations of the Cappy's parking lot, this arrogant policy on kids has hurt Scooter's business because it seems empty often a lot more than it was in the past. When will Scooter eat humble pie and admit he was wrong? When will the Cappy's franchise tell him to stop this anti-kids policy? It hurts all the Cappy's locations for Scooter to be such a dick.

Re: “No, Scooter Gabel doesn’t hate kids

Joel: The other locations do not have the sign, or the attitude. They ARE kid-friendly. Only Scooter seems to be afflicted with such monsters that he feels the need to scare off families. This is part of what makes his whole tale so suspect. Surely there were not hundreds of bad kids busting his fountains... Why could he not have booted the few kids that caused the trouble and welcomed the rest? This is the part those of you who think he's a hero don't seem to get... CL jokes about the idea that he "hates kids," but he does seem to think that ALL kids are the same as those who troubled him.
