There was a new EB menu which threw me a little but they gave us lots of time to decide. I had prawns to start which were a little disappointing. Unfortunately they were quite bland. But my sister had the paté which she loved and my friend was very positive about the chicken salad. I had chicken for my main which was delicious! And I heard the salmon was very nice.
By 1944, it was clear that the fortunes of war had turned against Nazi Germany. Many Germans began to anticipate defeat and to plan for that eventuality. On August 10, 1944, a secret meeting of top German industrialists and bankers was held at the Maison Rouge hotel in Strasbourg to devise a means of insuring a secure future for the Nazis. Among those attending were coal tycoon Emil Kirdorf, Georg von Schnitzler of IG Farben, Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, steel magnate, Fritz Thyssen, and banker Kurt von Schroeder.
Once you inquire about the broad details of their legal career, you should ask questions about their experience that pertains to your specific issue. You should ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can’t mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases.
Last night I got charged for each individual ingredient in my cocktail (had I known that would happen , I wouldn’t have ordered it). The bar tender followed me to my table to ask for the extra money f…or the drink, I had given him 12 thinking it would be enough . I was so embarrassed. As a person who worked as a cocktail waitress previously, it is so unprofessional to charge per ingredient (it was a classic cocktail, a negroni) Especially without any for warning. Really disappointed. See More
Mini-buses called “marshrutka” in Ukrainian language and are the main source of transportation in the city, as they cover a lot more ground than the system of public transportation. They are all private and nowadays most of them cost 5.00 UAH (0.15 EUR, Jan 2018), you pay the money to the driver when you exit the the minibus. There is also no schedule for minibuses and they also do not stop only on the marked stops. Basically, you can ask to stop a minibus anywhere, provided it is not illegal to stop in that area, by waving your hand in front of the driver. You can also exit by saying where you need for the minibus to stop. Thus it requires some knowledge of Ukrainian. Other passengers will usually help you. You may try to find the suitable minibus, tram or trolley on the  (also available in English). If you know the name of your street in Cyrillic and can use Google Translate, you may just manage that. Google maps is also a good option for routes search.

Odessan portaat ovat tulleet maailmankuuluisiksi neuvostoliittolaisen elokuvaohjaajan Sergei Eisensteinin elokuvasta Panssarilaiva Potemkin. Se kertoo vuonna 1905 kapinaan nousseen panssarilaiva Potjomkin miehistöstä. Portailla kuvattiin joukkokohtaus, jossa kapinaa kukistamaan lähetetyt sotilaat ampuvat siviiliväestöä.

In the AD 15t century, nomadic tribes o the Nogays unner the suzerainty o the Khanate o Crimea inhabitit what is nou the Odessa region.

A ceety wis offeecially foondit in 1794 as a Roushie naval fortress on the ruins o Khadjibey an wis renamed Odessa bi Januar 1795 (when its new name wis first mentioned in offeecial correspondence). Neither origin o the new name nor reasons for renamin ar kent, tho etymologies an anecdotes aboond. Accordin tae ane o the stories, when someane suggestit Odessos as a name for the new Roushie port, Catherine II said that aw names in the Sooth o the Empire wur already ‘masculine,’ an didna want yet anither ane, sae she decidit tae chynge it tae mair ‘feminine’ Odessa. This anecdote is hichtlie dubious, acause thare wur at least twa ceeties (Eupatoria an Theodosia) which names soond ‘feminine’ for a Roushie; besides, the Czarina wis no a native Roushie speaker, an finally, aw ceeties ar feminine in Greek (as well as in Latin). Anither legend derives the name ‘Odessa’ frae the wird-play: in French (which wis then the leid spoken at the Roushie court), ‘plenty o watter’ is assez d’eau; if said backwards, it soonds seemilar tae that o the Greek colony’s name (an watter-relatit pun maks perfect sense, acause Odessa, tho situatit next tae the huge body o watter, haes limitit fresh watter supply). Onyhou, a link wi the name o the ancient Greek colony persists, sae thare might be some truth in the oral tradeetion.

Recently enacted laws in Texas permit the open carry of knives and swords in Texas.

A course specifically for drivers 35 and older is expected to be added in 2018. Adults can legally ride in the back of a truck, according to Texas laws, and there are even exceptions for children riding in truck beds — one being if the truck is the family’s only vehicle.

Went here for dinner for my birthday and was not impressed. There is literally a couple of inches between the tables, everyone on top of each other. I don’t want to hear my fellow diners conversation…s and I am sure they don’t want to hear mine. The staff seem in an hurry to get you in and out as as possible. My partner ordered the fish cakes and t waitress slapped the plate on the table so hard that they almost flew off the plate. The pate was tasteless and so was the pork. Everything was so rushed . Not a pleasant experience. See More

Firstly, we did get there on the early side, but the place is not really well marked and we all wandered into the bar next door before finding the actual place which was a little awkward. Then the staff were somewhat brusque and unfriendly when we actually got in – which, given the hungover nature of most of the crew, did not go over particularly well.
