propaganda...the rightwingers use it alot..Wendy uses it to get her weird-ass agenda off the ground..hasn't worked yet...libs use propagnada and hell even I use it..but my props are ok because you trust me, don't you...you should trust me with your life.. but never trust me with your wife....hahahaah! I'm serious...I'll use propaganda to slip her satin purple panties off
but I see the Public Market uses lots of propaganda to sell itself when the reality is opposite the propaganda...
the News-Press had a little blurb about Los Agaves having a pop-up restaurant in the Kitchen at the Public Market starting Cinqo de Mayo...geez people, this isn't Top Chef..this is JK Frimples country!!! we eat, we don't analyse food...and WTF is a pop-up restaurant??? the absurdity of trendiness, celebrity chefs and wealthy foodies..the Public Market is for snobs and trustfunders, not real people...people like Wendy and Nipper and their sycophants like the joint...these fools think spending more cash on an overpriced item makes them feel special..or better than the rest...
but even Anthony Bourdain won't set foot in the SB Public Market...
but I told you last year my issues with the Public Market: well I see the new white Public Market by the Arlington so I go in and....but can't figure it out...you walk around and there's shelves with some goods, a small fruit place..more employees than customers with blank stares of Abercrombie Fitch models
the rest of the place is like a Top Chef kitchen.....I start running in a panic but I'm like rat in a maze.. no place leads anywhere but around in a circle, then in back there's an exit with no doors..just big black screens/grids that are inexplicable
|enter the Public Market at your own risk|
overpriced, poor service, definitely a snooty attitude, and odd design makes me a customer but once and once is enough...if you deal with the public, be nice and attentive, not aloof
then I see the Independent comes in with a story about the PM...what's really going on behind the curtains so to speak..I'm half-thinking that someone paid those kids to vandalize the place for publicity and sympathy
the Arlington condos and this whole PM concept is just plagued with bad juju..NOT EVERYONE GOT A BIG DIVORCE SETTLEMENT, YOU KNOW...NOT EVERYONE GOT A TAXPAYER BAILOUT OR CORPORATE TAXPAYER SUBSIDIES!!
over the years Santa Barbara has had some pretty unscrupulous business people, Wendy being among the worst..and there's a reason Moby Dick's kept burning down...flic your bic for insurance money
this is not a workable business model...so get someone in there who can make it work....a deli, sub sandwiches, Chinese Noodle soup to go..clam chowda!! reasonable prices..a lunch buffet..nobody cares how important the chefs think they are..I don't want any attitiude other than keep the customer satisfied....
otherwise, it won't last
gotta keep it real people, keep it real
