  1. Any idea why the Courthouse Café closed?

    1. I thought the selection was quite poor. There really aren't any good places to eat right near the courthouse. Probably an opportunity there for someone to make some money.

    2. I have been hearing this for 20 years. Oh Downtown is prime for a great place to eat.

    3. Apparently the County (building owner) wanted to raise the rent and the Cafe threw in the towel as business had slowed. Word is the County is moving the County Law Library into that space.

    4. Did Steve Stein own that?

    5. Because it had bad food and was unappealing.

    6. Back in the day it was a fun place for lunch or for a drink after work. I wouldn't call it "Old Vegas"; but it did have an atmosphere among the old legal beagles. Recently it became seedy.

    8. It used to be quick service, reasonable prices and food. Last time I ate there, found bug in my salad and decided it wasn't for me. I do know a 'relative' was the manager and ended up getting fired last year and the employees attitude kept going downhill.

  2. I know the owner lives out of state and my guess is the family member he left to mind the store did a terrible job so he closed it.

  3. That place could make a killing for breakfast and lunch. Need to eliminate the smoking and weird regulars just sitting at the bar, significantly remodel the place and it would do well. Probably make the bar area smaller. Property owner is the County so it will probably just sit vacant for the next 5 years, but we can all dream of a good place to go when we have multiple court appearances.

    1. Aren't the "weird regulars" all attorneys? I see the same handful of drunks every time I'm there, always crouched in the corner getting blitzed, gambling, and ogling the meth addict-looking bartenders. At 8am.

      That place is a health inspector's worst nightmare. I'm surprised it's stayed open as long as it has.

    2. Nope, it has an "A" grade!

  4. Wait. Are we talking about the Courthouse Cafe INSIDE the RJC or the Courthouse Bar & Grill across the street?

    1. Capriottis (formerly the Courthouse Café) is open. The Courthouse Bar and Grill (smokey and dingy) has closed.

    2. That is where the bats live.

  5. Has anyone tried the legislature's website today? I can't get it to load. Wondering if it's just me.

    1. I'm having the same problem

    3. They're working on it. AT&T issue up north.

  6. Wow, another golf course appears to be hitting the dust. Badlands, Silverstone, and now Legacy. Are they just not financially viable anymore? Redevelopment of them as residential is problematic given restrictions in CC&Rs, but what the heck do you do with the many unprofitable courses that dot the valley then? Seems to be a real problem, as you have very disappointed homeowners, but then again, who will really step up to operate a financially losing course then?

    1. Lol at "anymore". With few exceptions, they never were.

  7. John Curtas is an asshole. You like to body shame awoman, and then you like to make anti-American comments. This fucker should be fired from the City Attorney's office. You are welcome from a relative of a WWII veteran.

  8. He is an asshole. Nice hiring, Jerbic. Another tweet from this winner, "The secret to a successful restaurant is dressing young women in degrading clothes." Picture is of a young Asian woman in undies.

    1. But...isn't that true? Is your problem that the statement is true, or that you wanted a young Caucasian blonde with blue eyes in undies shown?

  9. It was a description, dude. You should meet up with Curtas over at Hooters.

  10. John Curtas is fat sexy. Love the bow tie.

    1. People in glass houses should not be shaming what other people look like in their old age, John.

  11. Yes, defend Curtas. He is worth it.

  12. I am watching channel 13 now, is he wearing searsucker suit? This guy is a douche.

    1. Yes he is the guy who waddled out of City Hall completely underdressed to be an attorney.

  13. Seersucker suits are white hot.

  14. I thought Jerbic only hired the young gay boys for City Attorney? Not old fucks like Curtas?

  15. Any annual meeting gossip?

    1. Other than no one attended and they are holding one in Chicago where once again no one will attend, no. 2014 Newport Beach-- moderately attended. 2015 Seattle-- not well attended. 2016 Hawaii-- moderately attended. 2017 Austin-- terrible attendance. 2018 Chicago- ?. Last well attended convention was Tahoe 2013 which was, wait for it, in the State of Nevada. At this rate they are going to be able to hold one in Kim Farmer's backyard pretty soon here.

  16. Here's an infuriating topic for discussion: trying to reach a human through the Clark County DC's infuriating phone system. There are literally NO OPTIONS to speak to someone. It is beyond frustrating - this is a criminal enterprise designed to specifically prevent access to the court administration.

    1. You are absolutely correct. It appears to be a system designed to hide the incompetence behind the veil.
