1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    [​IMG] Umami Burger. I didn't like their standard umami burger but the socal burger was great. Sucks that Blue Dahlia Cafe is closed, their burgers were pretty good but the place was reallly nice.

    I much prefer Cole's in downtown over Philippe's for french dip. Restaurant is a lot nicer too and they make stiff drinks. http://colesfrenchdip.com/

    Nickel Diner in downtown, near Coles

    the BEST BEST macaroni and cheese I've ever had. Has a nice kick to it and isnt the soupy kind of mac n cheese but a thick fork eating consistency. They are known for their bacon bits donut which is really good, but I prefer their red velvet donut.

    Some good budget ones: Deli: Langer's and Greenblatt's (Greenblatt's loses points for having awful waiters though) Cheap Korean: Soot Bull Jeep Cheap Sushi: Hama Dive Bar: Cosmos (don't ruin my spot) Peruvian: Mario's Polish: Polka French brunch: Canele Vietnamese: Via Cuban: Versailles (any of them) Late night greasy Mexican: El Atacor #11 (the one right next to footsies), for daytime I agree with Whodini. Yuca or maybe Senor Fish Wine Bar in a strip mall: Lou or 55 Degree Museum: Armand Hammer Dry Cleaner: T J DryCleaner Tailor: Viktors (Crazy expensive, but amazing attention to detail) Shoe Repair: Sedler's Printing Press: Aardvark Typographer Gallery: China Art Objects
