Well, most people here in Texas *do* believe the epitome of Italian cuisine to be the Olive Garden...

So a foodie joint moves in, and gets bent because the natives like their roadhouses?  Maybe they didn't like pretentiousness either.

According to the Amarillo Globe News, when the restaurant closed a couple weeks back, a sign on the building read, "We're moving your favorite REAL Italian place to LUBBOCK!! With plans underway also for AUSTIN!! Thanks so much Amarillo! CIAO!!!"

The angry tone, the implication that Amarillo residents don't like good food, and the all-caps CIAO, complete with three exclamation points, make a good case that the same person wrote the two notes.


I don't really see the tone as angry, considering they thanked the city and all.

But whatever.

If they want to move the restaurant away from rednecks, I'm afraid they'll have to move out of the Panhandle /Permian Basin region, and keep going until they reach Austin.

Amy's Baking Company started to franchise?  When did that happen?

What did they think was going to happen when they tried to sell that foreign food from Yurp to Real Mare-kins?

If not Florida where.

Hmmmm, Buckingham Palace?

That's my final answer Regis, Buckingham Palace.

Isn't there a huge oil boom going on right now around Lubbock? I would think there would be plenty of non-Texan/southerners working in the area with lots of disposalable income. Maybe the food just wasn't very good?

Reddit trash on fark? Damn it Drew!

Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.

I thought subby said "incestuous redheads" and I was wondering why that was cause for derision on fark.

error 303: I would think there would be plenty of non-Texan/southerners working in the area with lots of disposalable income.


There are.  The concept of a place where everyone thinks and acts the same way is nothing but a figment of a very weak mind.

You don't have enough passive aggressive people in your life.

This, made me laugh.

Because it's the best spelling yet of how most of my family say Europe.  I love them, I do, but geez they embarrass me sometimes.
 
2013-09-06 01:51:17 PM
sounds fair to me.
 
2013-09-06 01:51:54 PM
lol let's open an Italian restaurant where you can't use crayons on the table or get "breadsticks" before your bologna alfredo in Texas. Their next masterful plan is to move to another city in the same state. That'll fix it.
 
2013-09-06 01:52:19 PM
Armadillo has a lot of rednecks with low IQs? huh?

Since when do mexican illegals = unintelligent redneck?

I'm sure you'll find great success in leaving behind the rubes of Amarillo for the sophisticated, cosmopolitan clientele of Lubbock.  Maybe one day you can make it big in someplace like Odessa or even Midland.

Big dreams.

scottydoesntknow: From UrbanSpoon review: Mediocre at best... and thats being generous. Food was bland. Wine was old. Just not a good experience. If u have second thoughts about eating here, go with that feeling.

Yea, I probably would've left too...

When you close a restaurant, you typically lock the doors so trolls can't post signs on the inside of your windows. This was done by the owner. He got butthurt that the community didn't do business with him, and now he's embarrassed and trying to backpedal.
 
2013-09-06 01:56:04 PM
Actually. I thought that the height of Italian cuisine was the top of my stove.

Goddamnit.

I resent the implication.  We do have incestuous rednecks in Florida, just because this one event didn't happen here doesn't mean we're out of the game.

I loved that place.

They served great sour grapes.

Well, that tears it. I'm never eating there again!

Hey subby: Your description could apply to every Republican in America. Can you be a little more specific?

They must have tried putting cannellini beans in the chili.

There are two signs referred to in the article. The second paragraph I referenced was referring to the "angry tone" of both notes. Not just the one.

Well, they can be un-stable, and sometimes sound a little horse. No need to bridle at the suggestion; you'll just stirrup the trolls.

Talk about overreaching. The two notes are nothing alike at all.

Count on the Consumerist for biased and moronic analysis:

According to the Amarillo Globe News, when the restaurant closed a couple weeks back, a sign on the building read, "We're moving your favorite REAL Italian place to LUBBOCK!! With plans underway also for AUSTIN!! Thanks so much Amarillo! CIAO!!!"

The angry tone, the implication that Amarillo residents don't like good food, and the all-caps CIAO, complete with three exclamation points, make a good case that the same person wrote the two notes.


There is no angry tone there. The author completely made something up to reinforce speculation on another point. Awful.

And Tommy Moo is ignoring that the offending sign popped up two weeks after they moved out.

What do you mean? Even the owner acknowledges that the sign is there, he just says it wasn't him who put it up. The obvious reflection of the person who took the photo shows it's behind the door.

Do you need a photo of the entire restaurant so you can zoom in and see the sign?
