Blue Moon Over Manhattan.
Manhattan
New York City borough
Manhattan is the most densely populated of New York City’s 5 boroughs. It's mostly made up of Manhattan Island, bounded by the Hudson, East and Harlem rivers. Among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers, it’s the heart of “the Big Apple.” Its iconic sites include skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, neon-lit Times Square and the theaters of Broadway.

Great shop, super friendly staff with a great selection. My son and I rented longboards to try surfing during our recent trip and they were nice enough to drop the boards off as our car wasn't big enough. Went above and beyond, if you're visiting Daytona Beach Shores Mad Dogs is the place to go!!! Kudos!

I have worked with String Automotive ( Formerly Captive Lead) since late 2008. I have come to appreciate the dynamic way that the entire String team interacts with me and The Colonial Automotive Group. Their team, products and support is top notch in my book. Being smaller is better for me when it comes to a web/analytics team because I have been able to have a heavy hand in shaping our digital strategies. For me at least, with the larger OEM mandated site providers they are seemingly more inflexible with dealer/client feedback, I get " oh that a nice idea, we'll bring it up at the next quarterly production meeting. Whereas String has relished that feedback, acted on it ( swiftly in some cases) and has continued to improve their product offerings across the board with valued feedback from dealers like Colonial. The Dealer Positioning System (DPS) that has been out for over a year now is an incredible Analytics resource which allows me to quickly determine what digital marketing channels are working, which ones need adjustment, and which ones we should consider nixing. I am truly happy to see their growth and a genuinely feel they are a partner not just another vendor with just another product.

I haven't been to the Mountain Barn in years but my family and some friends went for my Birthday dinner last evening. I have to say that it was better then I remember. I had Wasabi Salmon special, my wife go a mediterranean pasta dish and both were great. The service was top notch and they even didn't mind ( that much ) when our kids were being a bit loud after dinner. The menu had a wide range of pub fare and the decor was nostalgic and charming. If you are ever near Wachusett Mountain and are looking for a great place to eat on your way out, try the Mountain Barn for sure.

I love this place. The food is great, prices are reasonable and staff is cool. Even when the are jammed they have a smile on their face and burrito in their hand. I have frequented it for some time now. If you get there on the a Thursday or Friday between say 12 and 1:30 there will literally a line to the door. Fret not, it moves quick and is well worth it. I absolutely love their hot salsa ( They should bottle it and sell it, I would buy it by the gallon) and their guacamole.

I just had my sons 7th Birthday party here and the facility and staff are awesome. My son and 13 of his friends climbed for an hour and half, then they were able to have some pizza and cup cakes in the spacious event room. Great place!

I went into GameStop looking to get a new game. The clerk took the time to answer all my questions about recent titles. It had been some time since my PS3 had seen any action other than the occassion DVD or Netflix. I was torn between a shooter like Battlefield or a Sports game like Madden. After a brief discussion I decided that I would give Madden a try. The clerk was helpful, courteous and had the answers to my questions. I have been to different Game Stop locations before where they have been too busy or preoccupied to take the time answer all my questions. He took it all in stride. I wish could recall his name, I would give him a shout out here.

Having visited New Ginza frequently over the years as it right across the street from one of the dealerships in my organization. I have alway been thoroughly impressed with the service and food. I have recently started a mostly plant based diet and today I went to New Ginza and had an incredible vegetarian maki lunch special. I was so impressed with the service I received today and the maki was superb!
