Here's a new twist. In the past few months there has been somewhat of a backlash against online sites such as Chowhound and Yelp where anyone with a mouth and a keyboard, basically, can fancy themselves a restaurant critic. Some chefs and restaurateurs have even bashed these sites in interviews and even I, the champion of free speech and civil liberties for everyone, have to admit that some postings on these sites really scrape the bottom of the barrel. Some people wouldn't know fine cuisine if they stepped in it and others have stepped in things better than what they've given glowing reviews for.
So, when we saw this sign hanging in the window of Kickass Cupcakes we had to give it a hearty applause. I guess they don't call them kickass for nothing. Right on man!!
