Another point of evidence that normal people probably shouldn't own guns... 
LANCASTER, Ohio — The armed civilians who have been guarding a military recruitment center here are gone, ordered off the property after one of them accidentally discharged his rifle on Thursday. No one was injured. U.S. Properties Group Portfolio Four LLC, the owner of the shopping center near the River Valley Mall that includes the multi-branch military recruitment center, ordered the armed volunteers to leave just hours after the shot was fire...

Best pizza in cville. Cant give it any higher praise than that. I'm particularly talking about the Hellboy(I think that's what it was called) pizza, which is what happens when you throw awesome onto fantastic and bake it for a few minutes. They also have an excellent meat ball sub thing if you're into that kind of thing.

It's your typical major chain higher end restaurant. Food is pretty good, and they have a giant selection of cheesecake obviously. I've never had a terrible experience here.

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 wines and a variety of good food makes this a great place to go for special occasions. I had the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly and served with a delicious baked potato. Followed that up with the chocolate pretzel bread pudding which was kind of meh, but still good. I'd still suggest this place over some of the other major chains in the areas.

We don't have tacos like these on the east coast. Great selection of tacos. Awesome beer selection. Will come back whenever I'm in SF.

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.
