Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Mavi/Four Moon Controversy on foodbuzz is heating up

Not only is there a plethora of people who's only post goes something like, Mauvi (5 stars) The best restaurant in the World! (Oh, I think I soiled myself with pleasure.) But it continues on with "Love it, Love it, Love it." Or something equally orthographically incorrect. Now, it seems that according to some people, there is a Mavi conspiracy to slam Four Moons Restaurant and Wine Bar. Ah, the controversy rages on. There is also a MaviBlahBlahBlah post out there somewhere.

When I approached a couple of people about this, I almost had my head taken off.

Some of these people have high ratings without content on their blogs. FoodBuzz, O! FoodBuzz, why have thou forsaken your rating system? Time for a revamp. And please note, all these Mavi posts, or most, have pictures of young women. I've noticed that these same pictures crop up on other community sights but the names change. However, the content remains the same. All these posts are very similar. This is a strange thing.

Well, my hats off to Mavi. Well done. Well staged campaign of terror and advertisement. Now I'll have to go to both Mavi, which I am looking forward to, and also to Four Moons Restaurant and Wine Bar. Someone has to be the voice of sanity. ;-)

Did I just add fuel to the flames? I hope not.
