Milestones is now High Fidelity (Winter 2007).

One reviewer discusses the new website: "The web site is considerably less useful than its previous incarnation. It automatically plays background music, a practice that is widely regarded as poor practice and which most amateur web pages gave up five years ago. This may be some ill-considered ironic joke, since the music played is a a tinkly piano and guitar number that would not sound out of place in a Barry Manilow revue. It is difficult to turn the music off, since there is no mute button but only a slider that takes several seconds to crank down the bottom. Along with this design decision, the entire site is a single flash piece, making it impossible to, for example, directly bookmark the site's show schedule— Milestone's old music calendar being a frequent denizen of Rochester bookmarks. While the site does have some new features, like a listing of the food menu, the utility of them is destroyed by confining the whole menu to a tiny, difficult-to-read little scrolling box."

If thats what hes going for, then he has captured it. I dont find Labatt, Bud, and Heineken acceptable, so I wont be back. Plus when I asked the bartender if "that was it", she acted like a B!t@h and walked away. How can you offer that few beers and expect people to be content. —MrRochester
