Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in this column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

comments
  • The current food is very very bad
  • I think the tower needs more lighting from the base and the tower itself.
    It is and should be a special place to go for excellent food.
  • the issue is the service has to improve, and the place needs a massive clean up!
  • this type resturant will somewhat insure that your aveage S.A. person will be able to afford to go, thereby increasing the visitor quantity
  • I've been here 5 years and have never gone because I have heard that it is very expensive and overpriced for the quality.
  • should be a high end nightclub
  • It should be a fun and unusual cafe that anyone can go to and not feel like it is going to cost an arm and a leg to dine.
