I learned the Greek alphabet thanks to this game (because each level was a different Greek letter).

Playing this game on MAME, etc. just doesn't do the sound justice.  Those HUGE speakers on top (even though the sound was music) was just so thundering loud and with a lot of bass.

+Jon Gerow Agreed, but you can easily reproduce this by connecting a high-end sound system to your TV and pumping up the bass on the sound woofer.

I feel bad for the valet.  Obviously the car has a very short shift.  He thought it was in neutral and had it in 1st instead.  Now.. the owner really irritated me because he was burning up the clutch the whole time.  Why?  Because of the heavy traffic. Which leads to this point:  Why have a supercar if you're just going to get stuck in traffic and end up valet parking?

I love how the tombstone on "Dig My Grave" says "W. Axl Rose".

DailyTech - Quick Note: Start Button to Stay Dead in "Windows Blue"

Beloved icon of Windows history appears to be in the rear view for good

Came in with low expectations because of all of the Guy Fieri haters, but we wanted to try something different. Guess what? Food was good. Really good. A little expensive, but good quality, well seasoned and properly cooked. I was surprised. I will say the service was a little slow. Seemed like when we didn't know what we wanted right away, the waitress wandered off for 15 minutes. Then, when we were done, she cleared our plates but took forever to come back to ask if we wanted check/desert. Still, the wait was only worth half a star deduction. The other half star was for price of entrees. Otherwise, not the least bit disappointing.

Great service, but this is NOT a corporate store, so many services that may normally be free are not here.

People often refer to this place as "Vua Kho Bo". Reviewing this place can go one of two ways. Since most everyone rated this place negatively based on its pushy service, I'm going to rate it on the products they sell. Whenever I'm in town, I make my way here for certain items that I know I like. For example: The dried white grapefruit and the spicy jerky. Sometimes I get tea, sometimes other dried fruits. But the key is to go in, head down, and when they start shoving stuff at you, turn them down and they'll leave you alone. The only time I sample is if I know it's something I want to buy (like if the spicy jerky looks a little different than the last time, I'll try a piece to make sure it's the right stuff.) Since they scoop and fill for you, they tend to over fill bags and then act like they don't understand when you tell them it's too much. Don't bother fighting that fight. If you want one pound, tell them half pound. If you want half pound, tell them quarter pound. Seriously. The product is worth the hassle. Just best to get in and out as quickly as possible and nobody's feelings get hurt.

Hotel is oldest building in area but one of the most expensive. Next door to TGIF that receives either early food deliveries or early trash pick up, so don't expect to sleep in. 2 out of 3 of the side doors (doors that go into the hallway instead of to the front desk) don't work at all. Not very convenient when it's raining out and you want to come in to the door closest to your room. Low water pressure in shower. Housekeeping made beds and took out garbage, but failed to replenish soap, shampoo, ice bucket liner and the paper coffee cups. Housekeeping also stole diamond necklace from bathroom sink area. "Bistro" has good food and has friendly service, though. In fact, it could be said that the only reason this hotel is worth one star instead of zero is because of the Bistro.

Decent food. Good beers. I think it's funny that they're considered a "steak house". The steaks are OK, but they have so many other items. Salads are actually good as they add proteins (steak, chicken, tuna) that's not deep fried. Widow Maker burger is HUGE and well worth the $8 they charge during happy hour.

I used to be a mechanic, so I know these guy's pricing is dead on. If anything is "expensive", as one reviewer alluded to, it's because they sell Bridgestone/Firestone tires and you get what you pay for. They're also incredibly honest... almost to a fault. "Here's what's wrong with your car, but it's probably under warranty." or "Here's what's wrong with your car, but you can probably go for a few more hundred miles.". We can use more honesty like this in the world.

Reasonable gas prices (especially if you have a Fuel Rewards card), friendly staff and THE BEST beer selection in all of Lake County. If you want a different beer every day of the week for an entire year, these guys stock it!
