Where AT has previously offered a $30/month unlimited data plan for iPhone users, it s now offering two options: $15/month for 200MB or $25/month for 2GB. http://www.magliedicalcio.com maglia calcio a poco prezzo While unlimited is nice, most users don t reach 2GB of monthly data usage (for instance, my most recent month included about 450MB of data). While users currently on the unlimited plan can stay with that plan if they want, most users will be able http://www.magliedicalcio.com/hamburger-sv-c-25_30.html maglia Hamburger SV to save at least $5/month without extending their contract.

Re: “A Bar by Any Other Name: The Adirondack

Wow. I was unaware of this bar, and the outrage regarding the name. I'm all for respecting cultures, but honestly I think the controversy regarding this bar takes it a bit far. People need to calm the eff down.

I am also from upstate — from a town located on the Mohawk River (I hope that didn't offend anyone). I also love the Adirondacks — and I don't mean to stir up the stew, but I do wonder why the outraged are not whining about the name "Adirondacks". Maybe they are ignorant of the origin of that name, which perhaps is even worse. Look it up, it actually has roots as a derogatory term that Mohawks used for the Algonquins. GASP! Whah! This bar is picking on Algonquins! By the way, I'm outraged by the bar at the Algonquin Hotel — not because it is a bar, but because it lacks the ambiance from the days of Dorothy Parker that I always imagined it would have... :-/

I think people need to calm down a bit. No, they need to calm down a LOT. From what I could find, there was NOTHING about this place that was disrespectful. Some people can take their righteousness too far, yes, and then they start to look silly. There are genuine things in this world to warrant outrage, but this wasn't one of them. Sorry.

Looking into this matter, I saw people claiming that their outrage was based on alcohol-related deaths for Native American people. But this justification seemed to appear later as people were trying to figure out why they were outraged. I suspect there would have been the same silly outrage had this business been a pastry shop or an ice cream parlor. Really, it felt like outrage for the sake of being outraged and feeling righteous about.... Something. Honestly, I NEVER would have thought this place was picking on Native Americans with a drinking problem — that was the stretch that was invented to justify their outrage. If this was REALLY your concern (which, yes, is a noble cause), doncha think you would save more lives by organizing to shutter bars and casinos on Native American lands?

Whatever. Pat yourself on the back, you got a bar to change its name. Go, you! But I fail to see how doing so saved one life of anyone you claim to be so concerned about.

In the end, I don't care what they name this place. I may go there, I may not. I'm not in that area often. I think Mohawk would have been a fine name. Adirondacks is fine, too. Both are names of places that stir up fond memories of a place in my mind. Call it Arbor Hill or Hamilton Hill, for all I care (upstate people would get THOSE references).

Really, I was not aware of this controversy until I happened to pick up an L Magazine today. I looked into a bit, and I had to roll my eyes at this nonsense.

Oh — Here's another target to direct your outrage... Yummy Taco is owned by Asian people!!!! What's up with THAT? Huh? Huh? OUTRAGE!!!! :-P

Re: “A Bar by Any Other Name: The Adirondack

I was unaware of the Mohawk Tavern controversy, but I think it was misplaced. Not only is Mohawk a geographic term (name of town and valley and perhaps more), but as an old-timer who remembered Brooklyn's Mohawk neighborhood, I probably would have assumed it was Brooklyn Mohawks who owned it, as they did a bunch of bars in I guess what is now Boerum Hill. I was just a kid and teen at the time, but I had a Mohawk friend from school.

Re: “The Great Georgiana... Could Be Better (But is Still Worth a Visit)

What is " new jazz" , and since when is soul music "deeply uncool by any measure" ? The music can't be as static as you described as they have live DJ's spinning vinyl of many genres.

Re: “A Very Quiet Drink: Highbury Pub

Always happy to see a neighborhood bar getting some press. Unfortunately this place is very expensive for its location. Paying $7 (at the cheapest) for a draft, it's not a bar I will want to spend hours in. The "silent" gimmick is definitely preferential but the other two bars listed aren't obnoxious and have a much friendlier atmosphere.

Awesome list! However the top photo is of Dynaco (on the corner of my street), and the second photo I believe is Happyfun...

adding to "gia'" Ive gone by and seen it quite crowded. Also it was very very loud which frankly deterred me from going in, went to Isa instead.
