A Couple of Charleston HDJ Items

Today's Gazette has an article about the closure of the 2nd floor snack bar at the Judicial Annex. It seems that some want to replace the snack bar with vending machines. I don't have a dog in the fight, but elected officials need to pay attention: Don't get between a West Virginian and their hot dogs. This snack bar has some very good hot dogs and there will be a backlash if it goes away. You have been warned. Of course, people in the Annex can always go across the street for a hot dog.

In other news, WCHS TV has had an ongoing series about restaurants that have received bad ratings from the health department. "Behind the Kitchen Door" as the segment is called, takes great pleasure in drawing attention to those restaurants that are caught with unsanitary conditions. There are, evidently, a lot of them around.

With this in mind I want to draw your attention to the fact that one of our best HDJs recently scored a perfect rating from the health department: The Swiftwater Cafe on Washington Street. Congratulations, Teddy & staff!
