+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.

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

Chicken n waffle and bacon and egg and syrup on a taco!!! The "hipster" on the right included a piece of, impressively, perfectly cooked tuna. It's my new go to taco at Torchy's since the Rosco (chicken n waffle) is only available as the taco of the month once or twice a year.

Game of war is easily the most advertised app I've ever seen. Does anyone actually play it? Not a single person I've talked to so far does.

That branch jumped out of a tree and tried to smack +Kat Askari​ in the back of the head. I witnessed it fall inches from her.

Story
Tagline
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.
