Lodi, entertainment, restaurants and e-mails

I have horrible luck when it comes to communicating. It's really bizarre, because I'm good with technology most of the time. But my e-mail goes missing; I'll miss calls on my cell phone and not get the voicemail for days or even weeks, even when my phone is on the whole time; AOL Instant Messenger logs me off and on an average of three or four times every time I go on.

I even have trouble with communication of the non-technological variety. I received a letter on Saturday that was mailed, according to the postmark, on June 30, and I regularly get letters and cards several months late or after they've been destroyed or shredded in transit.

This is why Lodi needs a music store (preferably locally-owned) and a computer store (that carries both PC and Apple products). Every time I order a CD in the mail, or a new cable for my laptop, I worry that it will never get to me.

In fact, Lodi could use some variety in general. How about some specialty shops, like a tea shop, or recreation, like a climbing wall, a bowling alley or a night club? We have all the important stuff covered, and there are some really cool shops in Downtown, but we need a little variety, especially now that tours will be coming here.

A few new restaurants would rock, too. We have plenty of awesome Mexican and Japanese restaurants, and there're some great Italian places, but how about Indian, Pakistani, Caribbean or Greek food? What I wouldn't give for platanos fritos, curry or fresh baklava.

We have over 60 wonderful wineries, but isn't it time for a Trader Joe's, too? What would you like to see in Lodi?
