Letters From OC Weekly Readers

Hate to get all usability Nazi over here, but did you really compile this list alphabetically [Edwin Goei & Dave Lieberman’s “Intoxicating,” July 23]!? We’re not playing “Let’s Find a Bar That Starts With the Letter Zed” over here.

One more thing about the Anteater Pub at UC Irvine: best homemade potato chips in OC. Makes the fifth and sixth pints of Fat Tire go down easier.

So the only happy hour worth a mention south of the El Toro Y is Mugs Away?

I’m going to argue that the best item on the k’ya Anaheim menu is the carnitas tacos. And this is within the confines of the menu, so no comparisons to taco trucks and true taco joints.

Thanks for providing the color and insight into events The Orange County Register can’t ever seem to provide [R. Scott Moxley’s Moxley Confidential, “Boss Harrah,” July 23].

“The council members stared blankly at her as if they were already dreaming of occupying a prized table in Harrah’s future top-floor restaurant or enjoying a ride in the multimillionaire’s private jet.” Nailed it.

Already union halls in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas are watering at the ass on this one. There are VERY few qualified union steelworkers in OC. They will come from out of town and go home on weekends. They are welcoming the “OC WAGE,” as it’s being advertised in Las Vegas’ hall.

For those of you so eager to criticize, know the facts first [Hey, You! “Not Dead Yet,” July 23]. I had a manicure and pedicure appointment before the garden party in the ’burbs. Having a weak rodent possessed by those children I share a home with fail in the middle of the street was.well.a bit much. That dog, as you call it, has a habit of creating dramatic events to attract attention. It is an assumption on your part that he was struck, as he has a habit of grazing vehicles and then goes into a tumbling act the children taught him. Bored with his antics, I contemplated leaving him there to absorb as much attention as he could, then realized I might later have to retrieve him from the shelter or some other place. That would have interfered with my dinner party. The Beemer is not new; it has a few miles on it, but Charles promised me a new one once he returns from the island. Peasants such as yourself would better serve the community by locating yourselves in a more appropriate area such as 10th and PCH. Farewell and happy dumpster diving.

Brenda Lee, you probably hit that woman’s mind-set dead on. Too damn funny, but what a sick bitch that woman is.
