And we come to the end

I think I am killing Blog Fresno.... I find that I just don't have time to keep this blog up. This doesn't mean that there isn't going to be anymore blogging about Fresno but it will be a subset of my main blog. So if you want to read my Fresno musings just pop over to the NerdFamily Blog!

The Fresno Bee Got it Right!

A couple of months agao I saw Mediterranean Grill listed in the People's Choice insert in the Bee. My friend and I even tried to go there for dinner but it closes by 2:30. So today I got a chance to try Mediterrean Grill for lunch. I loved it!!! For all those who know me, I am very hard to please in the restuarant arena. I mean if I am going to pay for it, it better be better than mine;).

Mediterranean Grill totally fits that bill. I ordered their Lebanese Chicken & Rice. The chicken comes with the yummiest garlic saice. Normally I am not a big sauce fan out because it is usually heavy and either overly salty or sweet. But I do have to say that sauce is what makes a good dish because it is all about layering flavors. Well, this was delightful!!! The sauce was a bit spicy and creamy with a hit of acid to brighten it all up. The chicken and rice was also served with a Fattoush Salad. That was great!!! It is fresh and just great. It is also a lot of food. I ate half of everything for a large lunch and then ate the salad with dinner. The rice and chicken will make a good lunch tomorrow. So it is definately worth the little over $9 it cost.

So if you are over by the Office Depot and Fresno Community Hospital, you have to try Mediterrean Grill!!!

Local Deals

I recently found a site with lots of local coupons (and we know how I love a deal). Sudden Values has a ton of coupons that are just for local businesses. I haven't used any yet. So when you do, come back and let me know!

Downtown, Parking, and Thrift Stores

I commented the other day on a blog post about the fact that paying for parking is a problem (in my opinion). A nice commenter (Joe Moore) put together a great plan for a day of thrifting and fun all with free parking! I totally putting this plan into action soon and maybe with a few friends who have also been wanting to go to thrift stores! So what stops you from going downtown? Is it the parking?

Wordless Wednesday: Old Buildings

This is a picture I took awhile ago on the Fulton Mall. I love the beauty of the old buildings and it grieves me that so many people in Fresno have never seen them. I know that this is a problem in many cities and in their downtown areas. I would love for there to be a walking tour downtown that talks about the history of these buildings!

Rick Bentley Broke My Heart

So Rick Bentley had a piece on one of my favorites, Anthony Head. Normally I like Bentley's pieces but this time he really let me down. But he obviously doesn't understand Buffy nor Buffy fans. To start with he said that Giles was a slayer. Slayers are always chicks. Giles was a watcher. Then he seems to not understand the breadth of Buffy fandom. Even if I wasn't a sucker for an Authurian piece (which I am) I would totally tune in to see the beloved Giles.

My last bone of contention is in the list of thing Anthony Head has done. Part of the reason this is so dissapointing is that it prove that we don't watch the same tv. Head didn't star in Doctor Who but guested in the show. And MI-5, which was a great show, was on Head's resume for multiple episodes.

Rant over.
