Wife and I had dinner at the Phoenix on Friday night, good food and very comfortable atmosphere. The food was of excellent quality and prepared perfectly. We really enjoyed our experience, the staff and owner made us feel welcome, will certainly be returning.
trying to figure out where exactly i claimed that poverty at any rate is acceptable or that restaurants pay a family wage. they don't. my 1st, 2nd and 3rd jobs were in restaurants paying minimum wage + negligible tips. i was able to move out and support myself, however tenuously, on one of those jobs. eventually i got through school and worked my way into a profession.
if you have better job prospects for the teenagers of black rock, i am all ears.
It means that 64% are barely above poverty - 14207 is only a little less poor than 14213. Only an idiot would think that 36% poverty is in any way acceptable, or that an overpriced bar belongs in the midst of such poverty.
Do you really think that anyone from the immediate area will be hired for anything above chopping onions or cleaning the toilets? You have much to learn.
Red is on fire, both in clothing and footwear,Red Bottom Bianca, and shoe designers are offering it in different shapes and price points. No one does the color better than Valentino, with his red patent leather D'Orsay bow pump, which makes the foot look like the perfect (expensive) little present. On the other hand, Nine West does a version for a fraction of Valentino's price tag. The resemblance is remarkable, but since the style and color are classic, shelling out for the real thing could be a solid investment for shoe fanatics and collectors.

But be forewarned: Some of the most eye-popping styles might not be for everyone. The navy blue patent leather lace-up oxford-style shoe from Proenza Schouler is perhaps the most intimidating ankle boot this season. At 5-inches-plus, the gold-tipped wood heel is as treacherous as it is amazing, giving a modern feel to a vintage style. For more futuristic footwear, Camilla Skovgaard has added a metal heel so thin it looks like a nail on a gray round-toed bootie. The pewter leather around the ankle of the Skovgaard shoe has a "Mad Max" appeal that fits right in with the 1980s resurgence that is affecting design in 2009.
Ankle boots are nothing new, but the evolution of the bootie is astounding. Heel heights have spiked, the peep toe is a common feature and metallic details add some punch to conservative styles. Since it grazes the ankle it is versatile enough to wear with dresses and pants, but not as formal or stuffy as a pump.
Metal may be scary and red could feel too intense, but variations on these trends are being done in every style and price, so you can ease your way into trying them. Remember,Red Bottom New, baby steps.
Punk rock-inspired decorative metals have been a strong embellishment in fashion for several years now and don't look to be going anywhere. Shoes are no exception, especially for Christian Louboutin, who smattered his red-soled pumps and flats with intimidating silver spikes and studs. His Pigalle pump is a high heel with a take-no-prisoners attitude; the wearer would seem to need a fierce personality to pull it off. His somewhat softer approach to the trend is the Candy, which has just a few gold studs on the toe, mixed with feminine black lace and a gold zipper tied in a bow. The mix of hard and soft echoes the aesthetic of collections from Alexander Wang and Balmain, which are informing much of women's style these days,Red Bottom Pumps.

It's always on the short list when in town...after Duffs and Teds .I still have most of those trip discs
doesn't that mean that 64% is -not- below the poverty level?
if people from outside of 14207 spend money there, doesn't it mean jobs for people who probably do live near the restaurant?
With 36% of the surrounding neighborhood (14207) living below "poverty level", these new bars can't be counting on local clientele.
How are you going to give him more of your business when you live in Charleston?!? This will end badly for all concerned parties, just like the time you decided to save Starseed Enterprise single-handedly.

The Phoenix looks to be a wonderful new addition to the Amherst strip and I can't wait to get there. If things keep proceeding at this pace, we'll soon recreate the five bars that once populated this intersection.
For all the hard work people put into these projects... would it kill National Fuel to throw the meters around back?
I didn't know the background of his wife leaving him to raise the kid by himself...that's depressing....knowing that I may have to start giving him more of my business...because the food really is pretty good...
you made me laugh about #1 Kitchen. You're right: There is no heat whatsoever. And the food isn't even as bad as the competition. But it sure does look like a Russian version of a take out restaurant--shoddy paint, threadbare atmosphere. That poor guy (the owner) works day and night every single day. His wife left him quite a while ago, he told me in broken English, and he raises their six year old daughter himself (and that poor girl is always stuck there in the restaurant with her winter coat on until 10 or so at night. Cute kid. Nice, hard working dad. But damn, some day she'll write a book about being stuck in her father's restaurant all night every night . . .)
This could be Buffalo's Little Five Points with a little more time.....bars, tattoo parlors, interesting characters randomly pushing shopping carts of their belongins by...but The polish platter at Barry's is always top notch...and the Mellenium clothing boutique across the street is too much....8 Ball leather bomber jackets, incense, knockoff Air Jordan's, lingerie...beepers...it has it all...on another subject, how the heck does The #1 Kitchen not get closed down?....the food is actually rather good but man they have to be breaking some codes....no heat inside, plastic curtains used for insulation, holes so big going through the side of the building a capybara could squeeze through....but the General Tso is really tasty...Reminds me of what a Chinese restaurant would be like in Russia
I was in there Friday night..Awesome! Great atmosphere and staff. Can't wait to go back for a bite too eat.
This is great! I've marched several years in the Rediscover Amherst Street parade, and this section of the street has always looked forlorn. Glad to see changes to that in the works.
So in the future: shoot a round @ Tee to Green, then buy a round @ The Phoenix--?
is that why they're called 'proper'ties?
can they still be called 'proper'ties if they don't meet the 'proper' criteria?
props to those who maintain their properties...
See, this is not terribly expensive.
A properly shingled building
A proper roof (though I cant see it)
A proper tasteful color
A proper tree and landscaping
A maintained sidewalk, curb, street (though I cant see it)
not to much to ask of anyone for their home or business.
Very cool. Good to see another building coming back to life. Any word on opening of new brewpub across the street at the former Hilliker's Pasttime? Pearl Street's map of its "brewery district" identifies a place called the Black Pearl, which I assume is the new venture.
