Resident upset about semi in front of Tina’s

Editor, The Sun

For as long as the event has run our family have been enthusiastic supporters of Burgerfest—both attending it and working at it. It is a great event worthy of our community support.

This year however I observed something that bothered me. It was a full size tractor/trailer truck parked directly in front of Tina’s Italian Kitchen blocking the restaurant entirely from the street. When I asked Tina’s owner about it he was obviously upset and said he contacted event organizers but received no satisfaction. That, in itself, is disappointing.

An event that professes to promote village business should obviously not do harm to one of our oldest and most respected. I can certainly forgive an honest mistake but can not understand an inappropriate response. I would expect this to be corrected for next year. There were many options for parking a truck that would not impact an active business and it is unfortunate none were utilized.

I believe that 99 percent of Burgerfest is perfect but “the devil is in the details” and this one detail needs attention.

Lately, I have been writing book reviews but circumstances indicate that I must write a restaurant review. The place doesn’t have fancy waiters or wine stewards. The guests are not dressed to the “nines.” It, however, is the best place in town.

Our little entourage of four includes: two grammys and two granddaughters. Our dress could be described as summer comfortable. We come hungry and leave happy.

On our first visit, I asked for a hot dog without the roll. Kidding, I added, “ That is unless you have a gluten free roll. “ They have gluten free hamburger rolls. Unless you must eat gluten free, you would not understand my absolute joy. My dog arrived surgically altered to fit the roll. The fries are wonderful and are not passed through a window on the side of a building.

The chief cooks and bottle washers are the friendliest hard working guys around. They are glad to see us and the feeling is mutual, to be sure.

This can be the place of memories for the young ones among us. After my first visit, I was transported back to the hot dog stand of my youth when my dad and I would take a walk for a dog and a shake. This could be that place for those who are taken there by their grammies today. May this restaurant last long into the future when the granddaughters of today take their granddaughters of tomorrow.

Where is this wonderful oasis, you may ask? It is Lucky Dog on Buffalo Street.

Gratitude to Kohler

Editor, The Sun

The North Collins Seniors would like to thank Margaret Kohler for all of her hard work and dedication in bringing the traveling Vietnam Wall to the town of Eden. Without your hard work and dedication to this project it might not have taken place. So we want to let you know just how proud we are of you for not giving up. Great job.
