Well I've never had it there before but I'm guessing it'd rank in the middle of the list at best. Eating Thai at Pei Wei (or PF Chang's for that matter) is like eating Mexican at Taco Bell. It's not bad per say but it's not really indicative of Thai food either. Go somewhere like Sala (32nd St and Shea), that's a great place to try a dish with tofu or Thai in general!

They didn't have social media in the past (or at least not to this level) and I don't think the league has done a good job of managing that. They are bowing under the pressure of the mob mentality. It's like the ref who calls a penalty because the home crowd is crowing for it. As I mentioned in another post, the inmates are trying to run the asylum right now.
