Re: “Drinking Issue 2015: Kava — embrace the communal root

I have been using kratom daily for the past 10 years as an alternative to the addictive opiates I was prescribed for chronic pain which I was able to quit completely with no withdrawals with the help of kratom. It is nothing short of a miracle that I am alive after the damage to my life and liver the prescription opiates caused. I am 10 years off lortab/ vicoden and xanax with the help of pure natural leaf powdered kratom with absolutely NO physical ailments, side effects or loss of focus while driving or operating any machinery for that matter. If anything kratom increases focus and alertness and as a bonus , concern for fellow human beings therefore makes for a more polite and courteous driver to boot. I am disgusted with the negative propaganda against this harmless and very helpful , lifesaving herb. Please research before you spread negative rumors which might cause harm by preventing someone who could benefit from kratom to have access to it. The lies and undocumented claims and unwarranted warning contained in this article are more harmful than any driver under the influence of kratom.

Re: “Drinking Issue 2015: Kava — embrace the communal root

"In fact, bills banning kratom are circulating through Florida’s statehouse, and this writer strongly advises against driving after consuming kratom. Consider yourself warned." -- You have no idea what you're talking about. Kratom does not have any negative affect on driving, more than a standard cup of coffee AND there is no way a police officer would be able to tell if you have it in your system without actually testing for it. It is not something that anyone could see just by looking at someone. Nice try.

Re: “Tampa's Sampling Science hosts crash courses in craft beer Friday

There are many inaccuracies in this article. There are no tickets left (not even spectator), Ciara is a contortionist (not the internationally recognized singer), and the College of Engineering is not a part of this event. The event benefits the USF American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers. We would have appreciated a fact check before this was posted.

Re: “Wolfing it Down: 4 Rivers brings Cheerwine, a Bucs alum sighting

I'm so happy that someone finally had the courage to tell it like it is instead of jumping on the bandwagon "This place is the best!". We went and had a ridiculously underwhelming experience, even when you put the hype aside. The BBQ was poor and the sides were bland. REALLY don't understand the why everyone continuously props this place up when there is so much better BBQ to be had.

Re: “Restaurant review: New England's Ale House Grille is a satisfying surprise

Not impressed at all on so many levels. Great location but the rebuild of the Old School House is not. Changes were needed but I believe poor layout and below average food. Sorry.....

Re: “Food crack: Frenchy's hooks Alton Brown with Garlic Crab Fries

I like and use Alton's recipes but believe his taste buds need a break if he thinks Frenchy's is one of the best. I bypass Frenchy's like a heart attack.

Alton,

I am disappointed that you enjoyed their food but knowing how poorly the employees are treated repeatedly and documents. That you would boost their exposure. Do your homework and check the with the state will ya!~

Mardi Gras is 2/17 this year. Ash Wednesday is 2/18. Your dates are wrong.

Re: “Bring your own bottle

Thank you for this post!! It's amazing how many charge some high prices on corkage fees. For $5-$10 sounds fair but some are $15 and up, I don't see that as an opportunity to try a new restaurant. I'm glad to see there are some Italian restaurants that don't charge a corkage fee. Those will probably be my first choice as I am Italian myself.

Re: “The Top 50 Restaurants in Tampa Bay

I would highly recommend Mystic Fish, Cafe Ludovico, and for Thai there is no place like Amarit in Oldsmar

Re: “Restaurant review: Nearly over the rainbow at The Bourgeois Pig

I and some dining companions visited this place the day after their opening, and what seems to be present in this article (a heightened sense of expectation) was also with us, but our disappointment was profound as opposed to the article's looming spectre of what could have been. Our tuna and white bean dish was redolent of decay and the pork belly was comically small in its serving size for the price. I am happy that Mr. Claridge could find some redemption in a restaurant I thought to be beyond hope, and perhaps I will visit again, but the initial visit was far too sour for my petit bourgeois palate.

You missed the Viking's Blood, although at 18% ABV, you might have just blacked-out. ;)
