The Things Resident Evil Got Wrong
Resident Evil has a storied history of making people scratch their heads at decisions made. Most of their legacy is seen in the positive, but of course there is the insane fall from grace with Resident Evil 6. Here are some of Resident Evil's questionable d...

Brewing fever is taking over again. My efficiency has been crap the past three brews. Going to do a few batches to try to zero in the equipment. Suggestions for style? Considering an Irish Red or Pale Ale. Something simple

Doom's 20th Anniversary
Doom turned 20 this week. TWENTY!!! (Oh GOD I'M GETTING SO OLD) I actually liked Doom 2 a bit better than the original Doom, but the original Doom was the first time, father and son sat down, and said, "Wow, there might be something more to this gaming thin...

Peripherals: The Dex Drive
I think I focus on the Playstation 1 so much because that was the era when I was making decent money babysitting, but I wasn't old enough to drive or have a real job. Basically, my $40 a week would turn into a massive PS1 shopping spree once a month. Saying...

Grand Theft Auto
I started playing Grand Theft Auto 5, and although its impressive, I always think back to the top down versions I played as a kid.  When I was in 8th grade, someone sneaked a demo copy of Grand Theft Auto in and installed it on all of the computer lab machi...

A few friends and I went to Monte Bello. We try to go to a new pizza place every other month and this one came up on several top 10 lists and the Google and Yelp reviews were good. We might have gone on a bad night, or someone called in sick, or something, but we had a pretty bad experience. Pros 1. The prices were great. My wife and I were able to eat for less than $30. 2. The atmosphere is that of a solid pizza place. Cons 1. We were there for 3 hours. We only ordered two appetizers and three pizzas. The place was never more than half full and we only saw maybe 4 people come in for carry out orders. By the time we got our food, there was only one other table of two. 2. It took 25 minutes just to get water. It took another 20 minutes for our order to be taken. It took another 40 minutes to get appetizers. And another 45 minutes after that for our pizza. 3. They ran out of toasted raviolis, which people rave about. We substituted mozzarella sticks, which weren't very good. They tasted exactly like the ones you buy frozen from the grocery store. 4. The pizza was OK. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great. Their home made sausage was good. But other than that, I feel like I would've been just as happy with a chain pizza. 5. As we were putting on our coats to leave, an employee came up to us with a to-go order and said, "Next time you should call in your order ahead of time so you don't have to wait." That's fine if you're going to a place where that's decently advertised. I expect to wait for pizza when I go to Blackthorne. But their pizza is thick. This pizza is a fairly standard regular crust. When I got home, I read other reviews. It does seem like some people know to call ahead. It also seems like a lot of people have nostolgia for the place. I just was not impressed. Like I said, maybe I came on a bad night. Maybe I should've done more research and found out about the wait. But I don't feel like that's an excuse for a place..

I broke my Tibia, tore all my knee ligaments, and my hamstring. I went into surgery twice and stayed in the hospital for 5 days. Everyone was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone that carted me around, took scans, fed me, or cut me open were great. The night nurse even came in and rubbed my foot for a few minutes when I complained of tingliness. I have to get a follow-up surgery to repair a few ligaments and plan on using the same surgeon and going to SLU again.

My wife and I went to Pepper's just randomly one day on a walk and decided to sit down and have lunch and a bucket of beer and watch the Rams game. We walked in and were greeted by Kim, the bartender, who was insanely good at her job. She held down the entire bar and dinning area, probably about 20-25 people. She was able to get everyone's orders quickly, she knew probably 90% of everyone's name, and she was incredibly nice. We had the pretzel bites and Buffalo Chicken Pizza. The pretzel bites were pretty good, maybe a little greasy. The pizza was great, but it was hard to eat more than a few slices. You really have to be in the mood for buffalo sauce if you order it. The bucket specials were some of the cheapest in South City for football days. I guess the only thing you could complain about is how loud the bar can be, but the volume seemed appropriate for a neighborhood football bar. Don't plan on sitting inside if you want to have intimate conversations.

The Urban Chestnut is a great addition to the booming craft brew scene in St. Louis. The place is cozy, the employees seem enthusiastic, and the beer garden looks exactly like the gardens I see in Germany. All the beers have a crisp but smooth taste, especially the German beers. Since the brewer is classically trained in German beers, brews like the IPA have a sort of German twist on them. This is not a bad thing. All of their drinks are unique, especially the Winged Nut which is brewed with Chestnuts. That's not a brew you're going to see anywhere else.

This used to be one of my favorite go-to places, but they've made a lot of changes in the past few months. The environment used to have a nice laid back vibe. It's a dark place, with dark wood, and sound didn't carry too terribly. Now there's a gaudy looking frozen drink machine sitting right on the bar when you walk in and a light cabinet with all of their merch right in front of it. Makes this place feel like an Applebees instead of a nice local bar and grill. The food has changed drastically too. They've removed most of my wife and my favorite meals from the menu. There's no longer a portabello sandwich, tuna steak salad, or chicken salad wrap. And the French Fries used to be some of the best in the area, they now taste like fries I could buy at Shop N Save and cook in my own home. If they touch the Jungle Nachos, I'm forever done with the Three Monkeys. The service is always excellent. I love the people that work there. They are always nice and attentive. My wife and I used to go to Three Monkeys twice a month and would always suggest it when hosting out-of-towners, but there's almost nothing left on the menu we love. Its getting harder and harder to justify a trip there. They have a "new menu" coming soon and we will give it another chance, but with the changes we've seen, I'm not holding my breath.

I've been to Triumph a few times now and have never been disappointed. The service is always quick and friendly. The food is insanely good. When I go to a bar and grill, I expect a certain level of bar "greasy-ness," but this food is a bit better than your average bar and grill. I would highly suggest a burger or the Rueban. They also have a stocked bar with tons of choices. Great place to stop in on the way to the Chaifeitz or Fox.

El Paisano has great food and the margaritas are not only delicious, but reasonably priced. I've tried just about everything on the menu and I love all of it. The decor is a little cheesy, but its no worse than any other Mexican restaurant. The service is quick. The server might not chat you up or seem very happy, but they do their job.
