The sad part is that the casino's own study shows that local bars and restaurants will suffer a 13% loss of business after the casino opens. In an industry that operates on such a small profit margin, this will mean that businesses will be forced to shut down. That will mean loss of tax revenue, higher unemployment and an overall job loss that is typically found in communities that host casinos. The City of Rohnert Park has already predicted a $6.25 million loss of sales revenue and the resulting loss of tax revenue for the city ($511,000 in the first year alone) as a result of casino traffic. One win, lots of losses. Read "10 Things Every Business Owner Should Know About Casinos" at http://tinyurl.com/n3gujab
I absolutely believe that tipping your wine host/hostess is appropriate. Having worked in the industry, I know that the hardworking folks with smiles, knowledge and a bottle in their hand are doing everything to get you as excited about the wines as they are - for $12 an hour. One would be foolish to not recognize that an average Denny's employee is likely bringing in more income (not to denigrate Denny's employees by any means). If a wine steward gets you feeling the rush of history, fruit and the passion going into a wine that demands you have some for yourself, reciprocation is in order. No question.
Is certain that Chefs Kronmark and Dopplefeild were able to offer top- notch training for our returning veteran warriors. Both have a professional demeanor that lends itself to proper guidance and direction rather than the idiotic, stereotypical shouting matches that are popularized by some current TV shows. These men have what it takes to provide the necessary ingredient for our wounded recovering vets... and that ingredient is heart.
Man, that sounds good. Let's get some the next time I'm in town, urall.
Spot on article. Angelo Chambrone is a force to be reckoned with in the culinary world of Northern California. His skill and passion will only increase with time.
He is a very talented young chef... and a great young man with loads of potential.
Wonderful article! I've known this kid (man? Haha.) since he was 11. I worked with him and his parents at Sweet Lou's and all I can say is that his blood ran as deep in passion for food as it does now. I've had the pleasure of enjoying his amazing menu at Barolo. They definitely scored with him in the kitchen. Congrats, Angelo!

Go Berry Go!! Can't wait!!
Great story young Nicolas. I might steal NSFD. Hilarious.
The wisdom of one's body is the best guide as to how one should eat. Some of us need to eat prior to beginning in earnest our day; some of us need protein, but can do without carbs and fat, at the start of the day; others can go for many hours after waking up without any negative, and perhaps possible, effects.
Nearing 60, I don't need to eat "first thing in the morning" like I did twenty or more years; and, not eating until noon, or later, feels right for me.
We do well by our body by listening to it about hunger—genuine hunger versus anxiety-induced or other psychologically-induced "need" to eat.
If you're not hungry at your traditional breakfast time, don't eat.
Thanks for another point of view about breakfast's necessity, one of many food and eating myths having achieved inappropriate unquestioned and potentional harmful status among too many of us.
So now what am I going to do with all these cocoa beans I ordered?
The Diaz family has been extremely generous in the Healdsburg community. It has been an honor to know them.. They were our major Sponsors for Ancestors of Mexico presented by the
Healdsburg Museum & Historical Society...
I wrote about the family for Healdsburg Patch. Wonderful people, wonderful community members! Excellent article.
How can I contact Scott Heath & Ellen Cavalli - Cider lean? We have just purchased a property with vintage apple trees & want to share the apples with them. Tried looking them up & the article had no contact info. Much Thanks, Debora & Jeff
What a great article! And what a lovely family. We know Octavio and Pedro. They are wonderful people and a blessing to have in Healdsburg. Not only do they run excellent restaurants and a store, but they continually give back to their community. The Diaz family is truly Royal!
I will never forget Endless Crush ~ loved it!
