''2007-11-24 09:15:01'' [[nbsp]] excellent point about the burn out. But generally for me, I lower scores because im constantly comparing the restaurants to eachother. For example, i originally did not like Guads, but lately ive enjoyed them very much. to remedy this in my ratings i lowered other mexican restaurants scores and raised guads. Probably the best example of my score lowering comes about a couple months ago when i drastically lowered every japanese restaurant in davis by 1-2 points. I noticed that the scores were too high in comparison to the other cuisines (considering that the japanese food here is not done very well in my opinion). So generally i lower scores because I am constantly comparing the restaurants to eachother. I generally lower more often because there is a lot more room there. If i allready give a good restaurant an 8, and i think they are about 2 points better than any other restaurant, and ive allready given the other restaurants a 7. There is much more room for lowering the other restaurants than increasing the good one. --["Users/MattHh"]

Ah, Thai food. A well-made Thai sauce is the nectar of gods. It's really hard to go wrong here, but below, I attempt a ranking.

2007-04-03 22:48:50   Welcome to the wiki. I'm glad you decided to join as there are not nearly enough professors on here. As it is right now, the wiki seems to be dominated by undergraduates. —WilliamLewis


2007-04-16 10:06:15   I totally agree with William— plenty of profs read the wiki but their contributions are regrettably scarce. I'll definitely check out the tuna melt next time I'm at Fuzio's and the muffins at village bakery. BTW, if you want to maximize the number of people who read your reviews, I recommend you put them on each restaurant's pages. Right now, your visibility is limited to (achem) wiki gnomes, or people who have seen your link on the dental fraud and faculty pages. —CraigBrozinsky


2007-05-02 22:55:06   Awesome reviews, keep up the good work, one day I will figure out a way to determine who you are, just to take your class. —DavidPoole


2007-05-03 03:10:09   Nice reviews added yesterday; I like the specifics. —JabberWokky


2007-05-03 14:00:25   The Wiki does, indeed, seem to be heavily undergraduate-oriented, but there are a few like me who throw in the occasional thing, and I'm not even associated with the University. Anyway, good to see your entries here. —DanLawyer


2007-05-09 15:40:48   In my opinion a salad should only complement the main entree, and I don't like salads that are presented as meals. I love iceberg lettuce for the very reason that it has no nutritional value - whatever happened to eating food for enjoyment instead of nutritional "value"? Excepting the lettuce comments I like this page a lot. —TusharRawat


2007-06-19 17:30:23   thanks for the feedback, CP. Although the crisp text and rough bike was an intentional juxtaposition, maybe a change is for the best. —EliseKane


2007-06-20 13:20:27   thanks for helping with the links to the Blue page! —JessicaRockwell


2007-06-29 18:29:29   I agree with you about being against moving all Sacramento based pages from Davis Wiki. Something is lost indeed. I proposed a [WWW]solution that I hope most people would agree satisfies everyone. —EdWins


It's not me deleting anything, I only edit my page and pages that apply to the community. I actually constantly refer other people to other sitters quite frequently as I am swaped most of the time. Sorry for the confusion ,but look elsewhere for the culprit. —ElizabethBarthel


2007-07-17 11:06:59   Howdy,

It's actually accepted practice on Davis Wiki for individuals to do what they please with their own userpages. So, Elizabeth Bartel was acting reasonably when she removed the comment(s) from her own page. That doesn't apply to her pet sitting page, of course, since it's the community's page about her service and not a page "owned" by her.

That said, thanks for helping to keep the wiki contents legit. —GrahamFreeman


2007-07-17 23:31:16   Heh. You're just lucky I was busy creating the Hawaiian Barbecue page :) . —KevinChin


2007-07-18 20:04:00   Dammit, now I want a hot dog. —GrahamFreeman


2007-08-02 14:35:06   Hi Covert professor I am Leonardo Fasulo owner of Osteria Fasulo in West Davis I saw you question about the patio and bringing dogs , we welcome dogs and my customers love it and i was thinking of having a dogs night out,hope to see you soon, Leonardo —LeonardoFasulo


2007-08-04 09:55:28   zogm anyone who doesn't have a dog can be crossed off the list of potential CP's... —StevenDaubert


2007-08-17 11:10:25   You are a hamburger-linking maniac!! Nice job. —JabberWokky


2007-08-18 11:54:45   You know, when I left that note about the photo on the hamburgers entry, the thought went through my head "I'll bet CovertProfessor uploads a photo". —JabberWokky


2007-08-27 16:44:06   Hi CovertProfessor, welcome to Davis! I'm going into my final year at UC Davis and have had a few years to try out the Davis food scene. I'm biased because I currently serve there as one of my two jobs, but it seems you have had bad experiences with "Japanese food" in Davis and urge you to come to Zen Toro (I was a weekly regular before I started working there). If price is a concern try us out during lunch we have some good lunch combinations priced from $7-$10, and if you have some more moolah to spend, try out some of the nigiri or specialty rolls (three is a good number for two people). For rolls, in order of preference I recommend the SSC, Lobster Roll, Avo-Negihama, Ocean Kings, and Stuart, and our customers seem to like the ZT Crunch, Tataki Attack, Citrus Breeze, and New Age Bake California. As for entrees try the Hawaiian Kalbi Ribs, the Loco Moco, or Grilled Saba. If like many people on the wiki you desire off-the-menu items, try the Seafood Chazuke (rice and assorted sashimi with a special broth poured over it). PS - we make our own teriyaki sauce (it seems like bad teriyaki sauce is your pet peeve). —AlvinTsao


2007-08-28 16:08:47   Tucos does allow dogs on the patio. At least, they did when I worked there. —ElleWeber


2007-08-30 23:14:03   Nice job splitting the Best Western pages. —WilliamLewis


2007-08-30 23:45:15   Could you tell us what department your in, or at least a general field (ie. physcal/math science, soc science, engineering, humanities, bio science, medical/health science etc.) Im just currious, you dont have to answer if you think that will give your identity away. —MattHh


2007-09-05 21:37:46   I believe it was necessary to out Talia because she was abusing her wrongly assumed anonymity to try to get revenge on the person who pushed her out at the Aggie. Talia has nothing to fear from Kacey at this point because she is not and has never been Kacey's underling. Of course, the childishness of her actions today could have adverse effects on her career should they reach a wider audience, but that's her own doing. You, on the other hand, aren't abusing your anonymity and have no reason to fear losing it. If someone did out you, I'd be the first person to bug Philip to memory-hole the edit. —WilliamLewis


2007-09-05 22:29:37   thank you for helping. —JessicaRockwell


Covert Prof- I edited the comment because 1) I am no longer a davis police officer, and 2) the paragraph is pejorative and implies that I directed threats of bodily harm to persons, which is not true. :) Hope you're enjoying Davis! It's a lovely town, really. —CameronMenezes


2007-09-12 23:39:33   Hi CP —StevenDaubert


2007-09-14 11:26:22   Hi CP. I'm a professor too, new to Davis this year. I appreciate the restaurant run-down. I'm a native Californian previously stranded in the Midwest for 6 years, so one of the things that drew me to Davis was the many ethnic food options. It's a bit overwhelming, though. I laughed out loud at your initial experience of Pluto—walked in and walked out again, completely daunted by the customer interface and the tyranny of choice. I did exactly the same thing a month ago before finally trying it out. Glad to know I wasn't alone! —CynthiaCCC


2007-09-17 15:16:39   I love the restaurant reviews. Try Chuy's Taqueria if you haven't yet— wonderful fish tacos. —BrianLum


2007-09-17 15:45:04   Nearly an alliteration, awesome. Seems like the new year is off to a good start, thanks for the grammar correction, it is a common problem that `fects me. —DavidPoole


2007-09-17 16:15:17   zomg hai cp!

⌐_⌐ —StevenDaubert


2007-09-21 11:15:47   i totally understand about not wanting to subject your dog to sitting alone in a cage. if you'd like to give it one more try, you might try making an 8am appointment (the store opens at 9, but the grooming dept. opens at 8, just knock on the doors and they'll let you in), try an evening appointment or ask the groomers when a low-volume time/day is so that you can minimize the amount of time your dog has to sit in a cage. or just give in to the joys of grooming your own dog. it's fun for everyone! water and fur everywhere! ;) —JennSuzuki


2007-09-25 11:38:05   Thanks for moving the Dos Coyotes stuff to another page. That was a lot of well, pointless discussion. —BrentLaabs


2007-09-25 12:46:45   Nice filibustering/tempest cleanup. —JabberWokky


2007-09-25 20:12:53   there's no joke about SOS and BPP that i know about. should it be deleted from the see also section? —JessicaRockwell


2007-10-14 20:30:27   Sorry, I should have looked at it more carefully. The only explanation I can think of is it was a joke about parking at the Post Office, Toad Hollow, or the gravel lot behind the Post Office and walking across Pole Line or through the tunnel (which is actually something I have wanted to try someday). Weird. —NickSchmalenberger


2007-10-18 23:37:08   Every once in a while I will see a professor in ali baba's or somewhere, and wish to ask if they are you, but then again that would be rather rude. Just to ask, what do you think of the veggie special at ali baba's at the moment? —DavidPoole


2007-10-25 20:29:52   thanks for leaving a comment on my page —kelvinkay


2007-11-10 13:43:44   What type of dog do you have? —EdWins


2007-11-14 09:19:00   Replying to a rather old comment you left on Town Wildlife, Town Wildlife is for wild animals like Bats, Town Flora is for emus and other domesticated animals1. Some, like Turkeys, are both wild and domesticated and thus there is overlap. There is also Wiki Animals, which are companion animals of a variety of species. —JabberWokky


2007-11-20 21:18:19   Actually, the problem I've had is that I've been running various flavors of Unix. Is it Mac/Windows only? —JabberWokky


2007-11-20 22:28:55   Hi there, CovertP. Thanks so much for the kind words and thoughts about our pet grooming shop. One of our customers turned us on to your comments when she brought her furry best friend in for a "spa" treatment today. I don't know who you are, but I'm sure glad you and your dog enjoyed our service. We aim to please, and we really do enjoy what we do. Thanks again, and we hope to see you and your canine buddy again soon. Fo' Paws staff. —cbenjamin

  • 1Of course, maybe I missed a thundering herd of wild emus that lives in front of Plutos. That would be cool!
