Anyone know the lowdown on the new Burger Delight? It looks like they just opened up on Hwy 42 near the library as a drive-thru. I saw there was a line backed up onto the highway last night as I drove past. Curious if original owners and product? The long line suggested it was. ...

On the Westbank I've had:
Pho Danh #4 in the Hong Kong market
9 Roses (pretty good, and a very big menu)
Pho Tau Bay (very big let down)
None of them came close to Dong Phuong over...

Listening to the new live A Perfect Circle album. Pretty damn good concert. It was from the 2011 Live Rocks show. I think even people who hated Emotive will appreciate the live versions of those songs. Me and the wife were at the Dallas show front and center, so it's cool to hear a live show from...

I finally had a chance to check it out. It isn't HUGELY different than the existing Leblanc's locations. There is certainly more depth to almost every department and offering though. A good amount of "specialty" or "high end" type products. The beauty of it, most stores that carry that type of p...

I've had my PRO 600 for years now and it gets used several times a week. I've never had any issue on small batches with the possible exception of whipping 1 egg white. I think that would be a challenge in the artisan model as well. I usually just give it a brief head start by hand using the whisk...
