    The Rumor Mill

    Poinsett Homes agrees to judgment in $5.3 million debt Doesn't look like they have much of a sales staff left at any of their neighborhoods. I would imagine that bankruptcy is forthcoming.
  5. Greenville News beta testing new site. Loads faster and is much prettier. Haven't tried the forums yet.
  6. I though this was a joke or a typo when I saw it, but a chain restaurant called Quaker Steak and Lube has applied for a zoning variance to build beside the Harley Davidson place on Chrome Drive. Although I now understand the basis for their name, it still isn't very appetizing. Has anyone eaten at one of these before?
  7. American Grocery had a couple empty 4 tops out of a total of 50 seats. Not great for a Saturday night. Pomegranate was packed.
  8. The wife and I dined at American Grocery over the weekend. The food was excellent. They kept the recipes simple and tasty. My wife won the appetizer battle with duck egg/arugula soup, but I won the entre battle with the seared scallops over grits. The place is small and feels very cozy. Nice atmosphere overall. The drinks were made properly and in the correct size glasses. The bartender needs to stop with the 'Cocktail' routine, and the wait staff could use a little practice, as there was some odd delays and miscommunications between them. Price was about what I would expect for the food and overall experience. Highly recommended. Afterwards, we stopped in Pomegranate for drinks. Very cool place and the patio will be a great place to hang out, come summertime. The menu scared the wife a bit, but I can't wait to try it out. Gotta start saving up for the babysitter again.
  9. Ted Smith (co-owner of Poinsett Homes) is the registered agent of the LLC that owns the parcel, Rhino Realty Fund.
  10. I had the chance to try both Blue Fire Grill and Azia over the past week. It has been mentioned that the ambiance in both places is really cool. That is true, but I was very dissapointed at both restaurants. At Blue Fire, the meal was TERRIBLY expensive for the amount of food. I could spend less on more (and better) at any of Soby's restaurants. The seared Tuna was mushy. The rocks glasses are tiny, so you are spending $6-10 for a couple sips and a bunch of ice. Being a glutton for punishment, I tried the seared tuna at Azia, as well. I have never seen it screwed up so bad. They actually burnt it. Also tried the ribs. They were tough and were slathered with what I think was sweet and sour sauce (the same as you can get at No.1 China.) Rocks glasses were the right size, but the pour was light for a $7 house liquor. (I might want to switch to beer.) Maybe I just had bad luck, or caught them on a bad night. But a first impression has been made, and I doubt I will go back to either.
  11. And just pitched a no-no against the Orioles. Congrats Clay!
  12. I just posted this in the Asheville forum, but thought it was relelvant here, as well. Cliffs Communities has contracted with Tiger Woods to develop a course just east of Asheville. Article on golf.com
  13. Is anyone else having a loading problem with UP? Each new page that I open seems to lock for about 10 seconds before I can click a link or scroll down, etc.
