Lincoln Southeast Class of 1997—Where Are You?

February 1, 2007 at 6:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Anybody out there from the LSE Class of ‘97? I just checked, and so far there are no plans for a 10-year reunion. That’s just not acceptable. Didn’t certain people volunteer before we graduated to get the ball rolling? Where are they?

It’s getting darn close to being too late to start anything now (if it’s not too late already), and I certainly don’t have the time to lead the charge. But I will pony up some time and energy to help. Anybody else out there? Hello?

Sad News on Three Great Lincoln Restaurants

February 1, 2007 at 1:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I’m feeling craptacular today—if it isn’t a mild version of the flu, it’s doing a good impression—which makes these three local restaurant updates seem especially sad.

First up, Doughboyz: The Missus and I planned to go get a DBQ pizza last night, but when we called to see if the restaurant had reopened, nobody answered and there was no message. That’s not a good sign.

Likewise, it’s not a good sign that at Crawdaddy’s the sign on their door still says “See you after the New Year”. It said that in December, too. Major, major bummage. No more crawfish pies? No more big ass burritos with mofo salsa? I weep at the thought.

Lastly, I want to vent a little bit about Lazlo’s. I have always held a special place in my heart (stomach?) for Lazlo’s, for various reasons. But you know what? I have grown increasingly disappointed with it over my last several visits. It doesn’t seem like the same care goes into the food these days. And remember back when Lazlo’s was famous for its stellar, unmatched service? Now it’s famous for its once-famous stellar, unmatched service. The team service approach used to work so fluidly and seamlessly; now, it has a tendency to be schizophrenic and invasive.

Maybe I’m mis-remembering what it used to be like. Or maybe it just seems like Lazlo’s has slid a bit thanks to so many other restaurants getting better. Maybe.

Anyway, those are my three sad bits for the day. I’m going to go think happy thoughts now to see if I can make myself feel any better.
