Went again for a more elaborate meal and we were seated in close proximity first to two parties we knew, followed by two parties we didn't know, but wound up chatting with. Very friendly atmosphere, and this time I can recommend the swordfish and the pineapple upside down cake. Oddly, they were not equipped to serve coffee with dessert for some reason--I guess they are still working out the kinks. Had a great time--the place was jumping.

It was definitely weird that he said those two things....

Ocasio's answer to the question of working together after the primary was also a little disturbing to me because her response was basically that she answers to her network of activists and they will decide what she does. But what if she wins? Do those same groups decide what she does once in office? That's not really the job. She also didn't really answer the question about other pacs that she works with. It's not like those groups don't lobby politicians...

I’d like to congratulate Chef Tony Liu, Michael Fuquay, Dudley Stewart and all the staff. I’ve just been in for a quick visit so far (aka a pilsner at the bar), but I was struck by how friendly the staff is, both in the dining room and in the kitchen. Thanks to Mr. Stewart and bartender Martin for taking time to chat in the midst of a busy dinner hour.

Crowley wears many hats. Campaign stuff is kept physically separate from other types of activities.

Ah, OK, scratch that one off the list.  I’m curious what the office is on 80th and Northern then.  Anyone know?

could be a second campaign space, or just a vacant space owned by a supporter? there's a vacant doctor/lawyer office space on 75th by 37th road that's plastered in Crowley posters.

I have to be honest, one month ago I really didn’t know much about Joe Crowley.  So going into this debate I tried to keep an open mind, even though I tend to lean towards the Bernie Sanders school rather than the establishment.

What really bothered me was in the first part of the debate, within about a 30 second span Joe Crowley said three verifiable lies.  The first that the 82nd St. Target project had Elmhurst community board support. False.  The second being at that 100% of the housing was going to be designated affordable housing. False,  from what I read about the developers plan this was planned to be luxury condos, with 30% affordable housing. The third being that he says his offices are on 82nd St.  False, his offices are on 80th St. In my mind any politician that can rattle off three verifiable lies with such ease cannot have my support.  Here is the article verifying lies one and two.

I believe his office is on 82nd Street--the building with Rite Aid (?) on the first floor.
