I hate when I spend $42 for a meal at what appears to be a nice restaurant only to be disappointing.
My experience at Bertucci’s at the Plymouth Meeting Mall:
This was our first visit to Bertucci’s and may be the last. My wife and I had a great meal up until the end. At the end of the meal we politely declined desert and requested to go boxes for our leftovers. Our server (Kaitlyn) brought our boxes and promptly disappeared. For over half an hour (enough time for each of us to use the restroom in turn) we waited for our check. I eventually went to the main counter and waited for several people to place or pickup to go orders and was then ignored by the man running the register. Eventually another gentleman approached and asked if I needed help. I told him that I just wanted my check so I could go home. He brought it over to us and I paid quickly so we could get out of there. I was further disappointed that we were not given any discount or incentive to return. Clearly this place doesn’t care about repeat business. (a Starbucks that same day gave me a free drink because the barista messed up my order without me complaining. I don’t understand why Bertucci’s doesn’t care for customers the same way) The food was really good, but the service was so bad I may never eat there again. The same happened for the folks at the table next to us too who also shared the same waitress.
I even filled a survey out with them from my receipt and checked the please contact me button. Still no word back. I went in thinking I found a great place to eat and walked away feeling sad. Sorry for a downer of a review, but I wanted to make sure others knew about this as well. If Bertucci’s does anything to rectify this problem, I will let you know here in an update.
RETURN FACTOR: 1/5
FINAL SCORE: 2.4/5
At the very top of Comics Sherpa’s list of comics is our first webcomic review. I was torn between lumping all of my favorite Sherpa Toons together in one post (which I will likely do when it comes to GoComics) but decided against it. These are the struggling artist just like myself who are just wanting someone to notice their strip. So I decided that each Sherpa comic should have it’s own post and review. Starting with our first review:
0-60 by Ariel Guzman
This comic is the story of a new compact car called M1T3Y that has a mind of it’s own. As you can see above it has a nice soft gray-scale for it’s art. It also does something clever when the cars are thinking or communicating with one another. Instead of the traditional thought balloon, 0-60 has words appear on the windshield.
Not many humans seem to notice that the cars are sentient in this strip including the cars owner Lillie (a girl who is not afraid to change her own oil) and Sterling a dude who was reluctant to accept the little car at first but has grown to like it. Every once in a while though some one will notice that the car has a mind of it’s own.
So, that’s what I like about 0-60 (as I warned in the last post I am not the best review giver). It has nice art in a newspaper style strip, some good car humor and some great characters. So I encourage you to go check out this nice little comic and read through it’s archives. The comic has a start date of July 19th 2010 and continues to update every Monday and Thursday on Comics Sherpa part of Go Comics.
Next Week: 1977 The Comic
Hello Blog Readers (or those wonderful little bots that leave comments about how wonderful a writer I am on a post that is more or less just a picture and have a link to some weird version of Facebook that for God knows why is in another country and demands me to fill out a form to “protect” my account. For some reason my blog thinks your spam, but hey I have readers who comment, yay!)
To try and encourage myself to write more than once every couple of months for this blog I am going to start a regular Tuesday feature for this site. If you look to your right you will my massive lists of links (unless your reading this on OH-NO, then you will have to click HERE and hen see the list of links.) The largest part of that list is titled Comics I Read. Well every Tuesday I am going to take a comic from that list (in alphabetical order) and tell you why I like reading that particular comic. When I run out of comics, I will start going on about other sites i like and add any new comics as well (I am sure there will be more, I spend almost an hour every day reading them). Now I am terrible with reviews. I will not be telling you anything bad about these comics, if i found fault with them, I don’t think they would be in this list. And you might notice a few comics that no longer update, those are linked to encourage reading the archives (as long as the archive still exists) So tune into this blog or OH-NO, either one will do next week when we start with the comic 0-60 on Comics Sherpa.
