Re: “A River Runs Through It (Sometimes)

Get rid of the "crack" then the next albatross - the Grove Hotel. Raze it and build a urban park.

Re: “Cyclists Attempt to Form Lobby Organization

This definitely has potential. We do need an organization that not represents the bike riding public (and I mean all including recreational riders, families, kids, disabled, commuters, etc.). We'll attending the meeting this Weds.

Re: “The COG in the Legal Machine

Well written Andrew. One comment though. The "dismount zone" in the Southeast section of the Greenbelt was private property given to Boise by the Baggley family in 1988. The Baggley land deal provided that it be a walking path and that's how Boise accepted it.

The bike path in Riverside Village was public trust land owned by the State and mandated to be a bike path.

Re: “The Griddle

Our first experience at the Griddle wasn't very good. My wife and I had breakfast at the Eagle location just before Christmas. We were expecting a similar quality of food as we had experienced with the Pancake house but unfortunately that was not the case. My wife ordered the pancakes and I ordered the Sausage Gravy and Biscuits with poached eggs.

The good news was that the delivery of our meals were very quick; maybe too quick as it turned out. My wife's rather thick cakes were a bit on the gummy side - perhaps because they were so thick.

The gravy and biscuits were a big disappointment. The gravy ladled over the biscuit was barely warm with very few pieces of sausage. The biscuit itself was on the stale side and also cold. Some of the potatoes were still partially raw. But the poached eggs were cooks just right.

Our waiter asked about our meals and after I told him about the dish he apologized and did not charge me for my meal.

I have no idea how to run a restaurant but it seems to me that the manager on duty should periodically check out dishes before they leave the kitchen. The cook should have noticed the cold gravy when it was ladled over the biscuit and that the biscuit was beyond it's time.

I tried to post a comment on the Griddle website but it wasn't functioning. Then I tried calling the manager using a phone number off of a business card I picked up at the restaurant. No answer after trying a couple of times over a 4 week period. Finally did get through to the manager and told her that I wanted to send her some comments by email. Got an email address, sent my comments (essentially the above) and have never received any response.

My hunch this place is not going to be open much longer.
