Visiting family outside Madison and rolled into our hotel room late due to low visibility on the roads and a late start out of the Twin Cities. Found Gray's Tied House on Google and decided to give it a shot. The Wisconsin Porker pizza WAS excellent, as was the gnocchi. +Chris Broecker​ found a new fave in the porter and I was impressed with the oatmeal stout. Definitely coming back when we are in town again.

"Yesterday, I flew over downtown San Francisco. I swooped past the Transamerica Pyramid, taking care not to get speared, and winged it out towards the water.

I slipped under the Bay Bridge, banked hard and promptly slammed into a warehouse. The wind died, and my screen went black."

The Oculus Rift made me believe I could fly:

If you haven't backed this already, please consider kicking just $5-$10 their way. It'll be worth it, and its good Karma.
