A Quick Note
Just a quick note to any readers who are used to the old layout: I switched it so it better matches my full website and no longer uses widgets that would break certain layouts. Hope to post something interesting in the near future.

Found a YouTube playlist and then copied it to a Google Music All Access playlist!

For some reason when I looked at the album it just prompted me to buy not listen even though I have All-Access and all the songs are available there... so that's why I made this playlist.

Enjoy!

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Gift Registry is great for informing non-gaming friends and family what I want. Table space to play games was available, I personally didn't use it but the people playing Magic the Gathering seemed to be having fun. The used board games and RPG books were at fantastic prices!

Sushi Ya is a great sushi establishment, my girlfriend and I have gone there several times on dates. The food is affordable for sushi and still tastes great! Sushi Ya also provides free edamame, which is a nice touch. Overall great experience, eating there again tonight!

I had a wonderful date at Tea Story, the staff were friendly and brought food to your seat, the decor is unique, albeit I noticed some stains on the arms of my chair. The food was delicious, however they were out of strawberries when I was there. They accepted Visa which was useful as that's all I had at the time. Overall great experience, I would return there again!
