Hippylawyer is a douche for her Connecticut stereotype because I am actually from there and I found this place to be great. I would definitely go back again.

Cool folks

Andy probably lives in Connecticut and has only been to the Parkside once, on a weekend. Moreover, he clearly never (1) talked to anyone who works there, since they are all completely unpretentious, kind people, (2) visited the back room, where the diversity of offerings and attendees is rivaled only by their quality, or (3) hung out with the life-long residents who shoot pool during the week, who are definitely not dot-bomb rejects. I live in that neighborhood, have a job, drink there, and invite everyone who lives below 14th (geographically or culturally) to come by and see for yourself.

Melting Pot

  • Yes, I would go back!

Contrary to Andy Bailey's assertion in his review of The Parkside, the clientele is a veritable melting pot. Yes, there is a significant contingent of one-time dot-com'ers, myself included, but the bar's culture is far more diverse. Enter with an open mind and you are sure to meet people from all walks of life.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
