Reader: Petty is as petty does when it comes to Cafe Society writers yelping about Yelp
Before the barrage begins over the Food & Drink picks in the Best of Denver 2011 (and our apologies to anyone who's been trying to post a comment after a Best of Denver pick -- we're working on a few glitches), we wanted to highlight one last comment from the most recent Yelp contretemps, this one by Doughboy -- who seems to think that our selection of an anti-Yelp comment yesterday reflects an anti-Yelp bias. Fact is, we're biased in favor of smart and funny comments -- whether or not we agree with them.
The crew at Euclid Hall: Does this look like a twenty-year-old restaurant to you?
Witness this, one of several entertaining comments from Doughboy:
If you drew a Venn diagram of the universe of Yelp reviewers and the universe of Westword readers, I would have to believe that they're pretty co-extensive, so I find it incredible that Westword staff thinks it's a good idea to insult and mock Yelp reviewers. You just look petty and vindictive, especially since you seem to be rapidly losing readership to Yelp. Laura Skunk hasn't reviewed a restaurant that I've had any interest in reading about in the time that she has taken over from Jason Sheehan (Rodney's and Carmine's, really?!!! At least try to review something that has been open less than twenty years.)
