I agree with you on the lack of thinking before commenting.

It is something of a point of view in the Deaf community where we do not see being deaf as disabled. I do get it. I do understand why being deaf is labeled as a disability.

And I do get why the Deaf community does not view being deaf as a disability.

That’s what made me look at other disabilties and examine why that word is being used. That’s when I realized while there are issues, there are also different ways to resolve these issues.

Meaning there’s no one right way to the perfect solution.

And you described yourself in a way that resonate my “right” way to view the perfect solution. You have a medical condition. And that’s exactly why I view all of us as people with human conditions.

Whether it be emotional, medical, physical, psychological or just about any condition that applies, we all have a human condition that needs to be satisfied in order to enjoy what we want to the fullest.

Great letter and best of luck on your acting career. Thanks for sharing this with us.

I got there before the lunch rush, so I was fortunate to be able to get a table.

Comment on Hometown Bar-B-Que, Red Hook, Brooklyn by David F. http://www.thedisabledfoodie.com/?p=9296&cpage=1#comment-33 Mon, 04 Jul 2016 14:33:50 +0000 http://www.thedisabledfoodie.com/?p=9296#comment-33 I agree! The staff’s lack of even acknowledging me was the primary reason they scored so low on accessibility. This is a common theme across most of my reviews.

I have eaten in anf taken out both of which can be quite difficult especially in a power chair. As usual, people tend to cluster at the tables nea the counter forcing WC users to navigate to inner tables. My biggest problem is that the counter saff seems not to know their ingredients which can be exceeding dangerous for those with food allergies. For example, does your mayo have soy bean oil? The lamb and the beef ribs were great but pricey!

I think I had some of the best and fresh (and garlic infused) seafood ever at a town called “La Perguera: before leaving to a mind bending trip to a bio-luminescent bay in Vieques. Good Times…Thank you for the flash-back David.
