2012/13 JH/Tetons/Targhee/Towgotee Conditions Thread
Yup, I feel like a nerd starting this up. I would also be embarrassed to admit that I went skiing today had I not gotten faceshots!
It is most definitely not "game on" in the Tetons, but there is skiable snow out there. Let's hope it keeps snowing so that this snow doesn't turn into a rotten mess...
Today (October 26th):
(the shot that makes it look better than it is)
This shows the situation perfectly- good turns to be had, with a lot of garbage poking out all over the place...

I always thought super early skiing was for moronic heros, but honestly, I am mad jealous.

Btw - the tacos at the Aspens mkt have prolly not been reviewed yet. Pretty good for 2.50 ea. need s and p and hot sauce but with the right fixings they turn out well.

Thinking about heading to Targhee tomorrow (if you are intimate with Cheif Joe's, there are some pretty meadowy shots with very few lurkers). neck deep, you got your ears on?
Anyone else get up there?

I have a friend at work that skied the Ghee yesterday and said it was good. They skied from the top of DC to the base. Dinged a thing here or there but nothing terrible.

In food news, the Mercantile at the Coach is closing. Flat out, the owner was vastly undercapitalized, and was underwhelmed with the revenue generated from the summer.
Can't say I am super surprised, I kinda felt a lack of fiscal commitment/ability very early on,that's one reason why I faded into the background when it became obvious that it wouldn't be possible to serve what I was hoping would kill it for him.
C'est la vie.
So, if any of you want to open a restaurant...
Oh, there IS a new restaurant that just opened in Victor, I don't know the name of it yet.

That spot is cursed. Pica's couldn't even make it happen. It seemed the only reason the coach grill guy lasted so long was because he busted his ass and was there all of the time.
The other cursed spot is where fun stop used to be. We'll see if that tortillaria can hold it down.
Miracles can happen. The cutty's spot used to be a no fly zone too.
I have a business model for those bad locations: sell it to Indians and let them open a restaurant. An Indian restaurant would clean up in Jackson. 14 Thai places, but no Indian .

One man's, "it's good, just clipped a few things" is another man's thin and sketchy.

Aha, thanks, guys. You just saved me a LOT of gas! Think I'll clip back the brush by the Oliver bridge if I can get ahold of a brush cutter/trimmer with a blade....
As to restaurants, commercial RE here is outrageous. No smart Indian family is gonna buy anything. Rent, perhaps.
The Coach isn't selling that space ever, anyway. That's the real problem in that space, no liquor sales.

Sell, Rent... whatever.

It's actually a fairly important distinction. Most 'family owned' ethnic restaurants are trying to develop equity in the property, and can do this by employing the entire family, from what I have seen. Certainly there are exceptions.

We're certainly not a blues band in any kind of purest sense, but to me Rock and Roll has always had it's roots in that tradition.

The place next to Headwall Sports is pretty cursed as well. First it was Bozo's and then it was Ocean Shitty Asian Cuisine. Now it's Danna's which is less than a year old. I hope they make it, the menu is pretty diverse and its not ridiculously expensive.

10-4 on the distinction, but you think a properly capitalized Indian family could buy something and make it work. If anyone could, it would be some industrious Indians. Just saying. I didn't know that an Indian was making snackies this summer, bummer. You could go to lotus cafe, but pricey and not made by Indians.
Sorry to turn the thread towards Indian food, but it's just the most glaring hole in Jackson's otherwise solid food lineup.
Ditto on the lame duck. Every time I fry green onions I think of the onion cakes they had there. I guess slangin' shitty chicken patties to school kids has better margins than a dank restaurant.
And for anyone who's still despondent when they think of vista grande, there's still one in Lake of the Ozarks, MO and it has exactly the same flavors. I went there a few years ago and it was a trip. Vista was one of those love it or hate it places, west bank vs. town.
Sorry I don't have any teton shred to give to this thread, but I'm trying to go all expat in Austria.
Here's lech last week:
I'm going again tomorrow. Should be more snow. It a good thing they have grassy slopes here. They do have an Indian restaurant, that's what sent me off on a tangent. I love my thai food, but fuck, Indian is the best food out there. Besides mexican of course

Just as glaring of an opportunity, a Greek/Mid Eastern Joint. When Bubba's closed, I joked about opening a Joint there, and calling it 'Bubba-Ganoush'...
But, I don't want to own a restaurant, and certainly not in that location! I wonder how long McFails will last...
