Brittni: you go girl! Not only are they slow on the entrance ramp... (I usually holler, "Lost the gas pedal again?!") ... they race by at 75 mph once they actually get on the freeway. ("Oh, THERE it is!")

Is Karl Strauss really the first brewery in SD, post-prohibition?

According to Aztec Brewing Company's website: "The original Aztec Brewery was started in Mexico during Prohibition. When Prohibiton ended, the brewery was moved to San Diego. It became known as ABC - Aztec Brewing Company. In 1953 the brewery was purchased by a competitor from the midwest. The brand was later retired and disappeared from San Diego."

Although, reestablished in 2008 after disappearing for decades, they were originally founded decades before Karl Strauss in 1989.

A simple Google search would have provided you with the accurate information for this blog post.

Hip, hip hooray for British acting. And for Downton Abbey, almost as good an echo of Upstairs, Downstairs as Gosford Park was. Downton has perfected the art of tantalizingly prolonged soap opera teasing, and it is sad that Robert Morley, Wilfrid Hyde-White, and Margaret Rutherford did not live to participate. Maybe in the past they were guests at the Exotic Marigold Hotel, a marvel of what might be called Raj Rubble style. And thanks for the review plug!

The article poses perfectly fair, topical, and even timely questions. Is such online venting akin to standing in front of the school your kids go to, with a giant sign reading “Don’t send YOUR kids here”? In a local music scene so clique-y and insular (some would say inbred), both in area venues and within online virtual counterparts like Facebook (mostly comprising the same people from the shows), one person’s online POV can have direct and far reaching impact. Most everybody who likely cares about the topic is probably reading all the same posts and blogs.

What rights of response do those have who find themselves being talked about in a negative light?

However you feel about the answers to those questions, this comment discussion is precisely why articles like this are (IMO) fine fare for this particular newspaper, the majority of whose content now mostly appears in the online electronic publication rather than the print edition. is a perfect forum to talk about such things.

In the article itself (since the worth of its very existence was challenged), both Sean and Kelly get to clearly state their differing POVS; the story in no way seems to favor one over the other.

The comments section is where the balance goes all kablooey. In this case, most everyone seems to side with the Ruby Room, and their right to boot someone they found troublesome, both in-person and online.

Doesn’t mean the other side wasn’t worth bringing up too, starting with the article and continuing here.
