I missed this fight, and everything I've heard or read makes me glad I did. It was the exact snooze fest I expected. If you thought this was going to be anything other than what it ended up being you've paid even less attention to boxing in the last decade than I have.

Was anyone actually surprised? 
If this wasn't the fight that killed boxing, nothing will.

Let Baltimore be a warning, this is what happens with Democratic policies: Middle East turns to shit, Baltimore turns to shit. Division, unrest, riots ! Better stay where you are until sanity returns...say 2 year's ? It'll be much safer...maybe.

+Derek Ross for having the toilet paper on the wrong direction?  I'd yell at you too. That's a mistake you should never make.

There are only 3 things on this planet better than a hot fresh made to order doughnut.

Depending on the pizza it could be equal or not as good.

Helping expose this rottenness lurking in our society and then committing to help stop it has been emotionally rewarding. Knowing how deep the problem goes and how few people know that it is even a problem makes me sad.

Yes, the United States has a human trafficking problem and it's worse than you probably think.

We support +Rapha House a great organization fighting Human trafficking by helping the victims, as well as the families, to prevent future incidents.
 
Truly inspirational. The +Big Android BBQ​​ and +IDEAA​​ have been committed to fighting human trafficking and the abuse of women and children for years. If anyone else wants to help women like this, I encourage them to donate to +Rapha House​​ (http://www.raphahouse.org/). 

H/T to a private poster 
Hearing about a young woman's struggle to wipe away her conviction on prostitution charges inspired New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen to introduce legislation to help other victims.

So glad to finally let this cat out of the bag.

The +IDEAA  2015 +Big Android BBQ is delivered by +Google Developers!!!

With all of our other amazing sponsors like +kiddoEMR +Cyanogen Facebook +Swappa and many many more to come it's going to be on a level like never before.  We are working hard to rethink every aspect of the event and figure out the best ways to improve the entire experience.  From ticket packages to closing ceremonies the Big Android BBQ is going to be better in every way possible.

What are you waiting for?  Buy an early bird ticket while they last. You'll never get a better deal, you can cancel before September, and you'll be able to upgrade to a different ticket package when they launch including the early bird discount.  If you are even thinking of attending the Big Android BBQ in October there's really no reason to wait.
 
Get a platter of #BABBQ with a side of developer sessions, Code Kitchen, and networking events. This year the +Big Android BBQ will be delivered by +Google Developers! Join us at #BABBQ15 - get your early bird tickets today! http://goo.gl/WOx40v

Story

I am Aaron I love cheese. My favorite color is Android. I drink Brass Monkey and I rock well, I got no castle in Brooklyn it's not where I dwell. I actually live in TX
Introduction
I've hosted and co-hosted online video broadcasts. I'm an entrepreneur. I love family, friends, traveling and cheese. I have loved helping grow and strengthen the Android community and ecosystem.  My goal is to take what I have learned on my own over the last 3 years and apply it to Community management or developer evangelism for a company in the same ecosystem. I am the type of person that will let you know if you have something in your hair or have some CHEESE on your face. I eat problems for breakfast.

The fries are great, burgers are delicious and well priced. Good beer at a great price too. So far I've enjoyed the buffalo and wine country burgers. The crispy parmesean truffle fries are a must have.

Decent burger nothing extraordinary though. The fries are nice hand-cut but needed to be fried for another couple of minutes. Service was quick despite previous reviews and there was nothing wrong with our order. Server was friendly and efficient considering how busy the place was.

I used to eat here all the time, it was our go to local tex mex place. That was until we found one of those little roaches (you know the kind that means you have an infestation) floating in one of our drinks. Sadly I can never return. Fortunately I have found Mi Pueblo, down the road a bit, to be a superior restaurant all around now.
