You know what, fuck House of India. I’ve been there a few times with friends (who insist on going regularly despite consistently bad treatment) and while the food is fine, the service is uncomfortable and weird. But this takes the cake: they had a lady arrested because of a misunderstanding over $3 on her bill. And it pretty much sounds like their mistake. I’m sorry for you people in Coral Gables with restaurants that feel like they can abuse you because there’s no competition, but this place needs to be boycotted. Update: Also, fuck the asshole Coral Gables police officer who thought it would be a good idea to arrest this woman, and the asshole police chief who agreed. (via whl)

Tere catches some shit at Oneburger. You might could find their menu on their website (oneburger – dot – com) but make a sandwich, because it takes at least that long to load this flash monstrosity. I once again extend my sympathy to Coral Gables residence, as they continue a search for one — just one — competent restaurant in their fair city.

What's up with the Merrick statue?

Here’s the new statue of George Merrick, the crafty bastard who created Coral Gables. Doesn’t something seem a little funny about it? I’m comparing the statue with the photo of Merrick here, and it strikes me as a bit cartoonish and almost, well, squat. Is it the photo? Tere’s photo looks a little different (although some of her commenters thought it looked funny). Hmm . . . maybe it’s best enjoyed in person.
