The new Photos is awesome on the surface, but is very lacking the further you get into it.

Yay for good seats. So much legroom. Excited to be headed home, but sad to leave so many awesome people that I met at #io15. It was a good time, but it's time to ride sleep in my thin-walled metal tube with wings at 30k feet. Good night San Francisco... Until next time. 💞

The keynote presentation at this year's Google I/O is all over, and compared to previous years, it wasn't action packed. What we didn't get? No new...

Some of the best beer this side of the country. Excellent food as well, make sure to try the black bean burger if you're into that kind of thing; it's pretty awesome.

Excellent experience the whole way through. Outstanding attention to detail and the end product looked fantastic. I couldn't recommend this place more for any tint needs.

Excellent seafood and great drinks. The also have a really awesome outdoor bar when the weather is nice. Wait staff has always been friendly and helpful. Can't really complain. One of my favorite places on this side of cville.

Best brewery in cville. Always a wide selection of beer on tap and awesome staff. They also have food trucks some nights, and a few board games to play if that's what strikes your fancy. Added bonus that they have a chalk wall that you can draw on, which I've taken advantage of several times. Outdoor seating is pretty plentiful for the size of the brewery. One of my favorite places to chill in town. 40 mile IPA is a staple, and I'd highly recommend it, but be daring and try them all.

Duck Donuts. Fresh donuts. Made to order as you're waiting. In my opinion, these are the new best donuts in cville, but I realize that may be controversial. I used to look forward to going down to the Outer Banks every year because of Duck Donuts, and now I have them right next door. My life may be complete.
