Cancel him!!! ;D :D >:D

It is not canceling. It is called respect as decency for a person. I can tell you of you use the title of this thread in other social platforms. It will be considered TOS. (Just saying) This maybe why TalkIrvjne does not have big time sponsors.

Just tried to log in right at 8 pm on Othena to schedule an appointment for a grandparent. No luck. I'm not sure there were any available slots open tonight.

So as predicted by many the auction strategy was not successful for this one and it’s back on the market at $2.3 million (or $600k above the auction starting price).

I'm seeing some first buyers getting into this hood lately for those 3-level condos. No MR for this community especially in the current low interest rates, it might make you want to buy here.

I personally would still look at newer Irvine communities like Eastwood, Stonegate, or Cypress Village. They don't carry that much MR. It's just my personal opinion so no right or wrong here.

Problem with the lower end of Irvine is the following:

1. Mello roos (high or low its a tax and extra money out of your pocket)
2. relative high HOA. difficult to justify mello roos + medium to high HOA
3. bidding wars
4. lower end price points require some sort of renovation/repairs that needs to be done in order for it to look more modern. why buy resale in that case when you can get something new for roughly the same price?

Everyone is different and has their own preferences. In this market, it really sucks being a first time home buyer and I cannot justify paying a premium just to be in Irvine. Especially when I do not have kids and do not plan on taking advantage of the school district. I'm literally 10-15 minutes from Irvine should I need to go there as well. In the end, the question people have to ask is if the Irvine premium really worth it? That will differ for everyone but for me, its not.

Time to short the food delivery apps!! They need to be careful because they themselves can put themselves out of business. They need to find the right balance of letting the restaurant benefit while as well as themselves.

What they can’t be is a parasite that kills the host and then it dies

The danger is that these apps want to be a middleman between your entire future customer base and you (the restaurant owner/operator).

That's what I mentioned in my last sentence. 

Is Doordash tripling revenue because of true long term changes in customer behavior, or is it purely a pandemic-driven shift?  Is takeout business across the board stagnant compared to before the pandemic, or up a lot?  Personally my takeout frequency is up 400% in the pandemic, and I don't use delivery services, so I don't think we can draw a lot of conclusions based on random stats.

No restaurant is forced to use Doordash or Grubhub.  If a restaurant partners with them, then there must be a net benefit.  They must be profiting on sales via Doordash, even after a 10-30% cut.   The article states as much.

You're right if it's a marginal order. The danger is that these apps want to be a middleman between your entire future customer base and you (the restaurant owner/operator). Doordash's revenue has tripled during the pandemic, and that means more and more orders are going through an intermediary that charges 15-30% an order.

Love that your nickname for the first female vice president in our nation's history is a play on the word for prostitute. Very classy & cool.

The title of the thread should be TOS.

The Hut is finally OPEN!

They started last week Tuesday for takeout and delivery only. Interior looks nice with plenty of seating for families, 3 flat screen TVs, and a bar area.

I tried their Pizza.  It was pretty good!  Finally a close by pizza place.   OH Shopping now needs a really good Noodle Place to replace now closed Ren Asian Bistro.

Do they have any different/unique offerings vs. regular old Pizza Hut?
