Il Forno is also amazing, the new owner (Anna) had a bit of a rough start getting the place up to par again but it's awesome now.

That is problem with a lot of waitrersses/ waiters they expect to get a tip no matter what. The fact that a lot of people in society are stimulated to tip regardless is ****ed at best.
As a former server I agree with that completely If I'm not getting good service I'm not tipping, I don't care how many dirty looks the server gives me.

Over a 10-year period, people who ate the most red meat every day (about 62.5 grams per 1,000 calories per day, equivalent to a quarter-pound burger or small steak per day) had about a 30 percent greater risk of dying compared with those who consumed the least amount of red meat (a median of 9.8 grams per 1,000 calories per day). The excess mortality was mostly the result of cardiovascular disease and cancer

organic vegetables....

You think red meat doesn't have bacteria?

Most fish are good to eat and good for you—high in protein and other nutrients, and low in fat. Eat fish that are low in Mercury for example;

Bluegill Sunfish
Farm-raised catfish
Farm-raised crayfish
Farm-raised trout
Just a heads up... according to new studies almost EVERYTHING is more likely to give you cancer/give you aids/give you xxx disease/take years off your life.

I wonder how some people managed their longevity without all these studies on what's good and bad for you...

(Almost) everything in moderation, friend, and you'll be ok

I'll throw in Packrat Louie's on Whyte as well.
