Are You kidding

by Katmandu33

Did you seriously review Ruby Tuesdays, a national chain. I have two of them in Toledo. I want to know about local dining establishments.

Who are you talking to? If it's someone who reported on restaurants in their Travel Page, you might want to bear in mind that tourists don't necessarily know what you have in Toledo, but report on what they don't have back home! I bet if you visited my city you wouldn't know what was a national chain and what wasn't!

Re: Are You kidding

Re: Are You kidding

Named after the Rolling Stones song, no doubt?

I've always wanted to open a bar on a Mainstreet and call it "Exile".

...maybe an e-mail to that person might be more effective than whining like a little b*&^# on their period?

Re: Are You kidding

Have you even been to Hampton, Virginia? There aren't a whole lot of options there other than chains, odd for a town of some 150,000 people. I've spent a lot of time on a stool at Hooters and am thinking about writing a tip on that fine establishment.

As a general rule, I don't review chains on VT (or even go to chains for that matter), but I have no problem with a random review here and there, especially if one particular location is unique in its service, decor, location, etc.

Have you noticed 3 of the 10 Toledo restaurant tips on VT are national chains: Spaghetti Warehouse, Lonestar, and Carrabba's...

Happy eating!

Joe

The best part about Virtual Tourist is that people have manners and respect other peoples opinions and do their best to give helpful, honest and constructive advice based on their experience. We are all different.

Sometimes for travellers (especially overseas ones) going to chain stores is as exciting as going to a fancy place. Let people review whatever they want. If you don't like their reviews just leave their pages.

Leave the juvenile whinging to the kids websites.

I didn't know that they had Ruby Tuesdays in Spain. Let alone two of them in one, historic city. And that's great that you own both. Congratulations on the success!
But, yes, I did review it and I'll do it again. Bwa-ha-ha!

Any "reviews" far exceed the amount of information that you have contributed to the VT community. We look forward to reviews of some fine local eating establishments visited during your travels.

Travel Tips for Hampton

Fort Wool - formerly Castle Calhoon

by grandmaR

When we toured Ft. Monroe, we also learned about Fort Wool because Robert E. Lee (who was originally a military engineer), was given the job of stablizing the island when he was stationed at Ft. Monroe. From the website:

"A Brief History of Fort Wool 1823 - 1946
"The island that Fort Wool sits on is man-made. Known as the Rip-Raps, it was created beginning in 1818 on a shoal and is basically a big pile of rocks. The island .. was still incomplete at the start of the Civil War. .. Plans called for Castle Calhoun, the original name of Fort Wool, to have three tiers of casemates and a parapet with a total of 232 cannons. But as the island started to settle, construction stopped during the construction of the second tier.

"Fort Calhoun was used before the Civil War as a summer retreat for President Andrew Jackson. In 1862, a name change was in order. Named after John C. Calhoun, President Monroe's Secretary of War and Confederate sympathizer, it was decided that it would be named after Maj. Gen. John Ellis Wool, a Mexican War hero and commander at Fort Monroe..."

The soldiers at Ft. Wool were able to witness the battle of the Moniter and the Merrimac (some of the first ironclads).

"After being decommissioned it was given to the state in 1967 and in 1970 the City of Hampton developed it into a park. ... The island continues to settle to this very day, and recently the casemates of the original fortress were put off-limits for safety reasons. "

Access during most of the year is via the Miss Hampton II, (764 Settlers Landing Road, Hampton) a tour boat that docks at Hampton Visitor Center, next to Radisson Hotel It can also be briefly glimpsed by cars entering the southern end of the Hampton Roads tunnel on Interstate 64.

The tour costs $14.50 adults, $12.50 seniors, $8 children 6-11.

I have not taken this trip.

Hours: Tour from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. runs from April 12 to Oct. 31; Tour from 2-5 p.m. runs from May 25 to Sept. 2
