So turns out that the SOPA postponement was a lie, it's going to be voted on in a few days. Please call and write your congressman. Here's a form letter from the Electronic Frontiers Foundation (they fight for freedoms on the internet, and doesn't afraid of anything): https://wfc2.wiredforchange.com/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8173 . Even better, if your representative is on the house judiciary committee, call and write them. They're the ones who can have the biggest effect right now. Here's a list of them: http://judiciary.house.gov/about/members.html

It's important to kill this in committee because it's almost certain to pass the house; there are just too many people in the pockets of industry.

SOPA would kill websites that host user content. That means youtube, reddit, wikipedia, and more could be taken down at the whims of companies or the government without judicial oversight. Fight back!
The Internet Blacklist Legislation - known as PROTECT IP Act in the Senate and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House - is a threatening sequel to last year's COICA Internet censorship bill. L...

If what you want is a giant pile of meat and some caiparinha, this is the place to go. The grilled cheese (literally a grilled block of cheese, not a sandwich) was also excellent.

Really delicious food for the adventurous. The vegetarian glop is especially good.

I come here to refill my 5 lb CO2 tanks for serving homebrew beer out of my keggerator. The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful. Tank swaps are $17 at time of writing, but they charge substantially more if you want to use a credit card. They do sometimes run out of tanks, so you might want to call ahead.

Excellent burritos. The fish filling was delicately spiced and tender, and the tortilla was pan-fried just a little adding a tasty crunch. They also have us really good tortilla chips with a sauce that tasted like a blend of tomatillo salsa and guac - awesome!

One of the few places to get herring, so I'm glad it's here. Small and pricey, though.

Mediocre beer, long lines, and too-loud music. At least it's inexpensive, but it's also in the middle of a really unpleasant neighborhood.
