I got some great ideas from this.... People would shit themselves if they saw what was in mine... This should become a thing!

I think it speaks volumes about wearable tech and even glass specifically that such enormous multi-national companies are betting on their success.

It will be the little niche apps that make wearable tech truly magnificent.

Killer breakfast but with a bar that opens at 10am, noisy, fully packed, and in general not my kind of breakfast atmosphere. food is fantastic, just presented in a loud environment.

Busy, sandwiches and basic lunch fare type joint with a killer convenient location near the brown line. kind of pricey for the food but worth it for the great location and remarkably fast ordering and eating.

A superbly prepared dinner with an amazing dessert. The staff and ambience are both first rate. If you're looking for amazing wood fired foods, this is the place. Just follow lake street west from the Morgan stop, you'll smell it once you get close!

Fantastic Southern fare at a reasonable price point. Killer burgers and a fantastic brisket as well. Good cocktails and a decent beer list. Try the Mac and chess!
