+Paul Spoerry I don't know about you, but I feel like the amazing SCOTUS decision has completely eclipsed this equally incredible news!  We should be talking about both today...

Supreme Court Guarantees The Right To Same-Sex Marriage

A narrow 5 to 4 decision, but the ruling is in. Things are finally moving in the right direction!

#GayMarriage   #SupremeCourt  
The decision came against the backdrop of fast-moving changes in public opinion, with polls indicating that most Americans now approve of same-sex marriage.

I went in for an oil change based on the all 5-star reviews of this place. They impressed me on so many levels that I also had to write a review of my own! I arrived early for my appointment (easily scheduled online), and they took my car right away. The managers in the office were friendly and knowledgeable, making conversation without seeming pushy or overly chatty. They also rang up my oil change for the sale price on their website without me even mentioning it or showing them the coupon I had remembered to print and bring with me. They didn't try to upsell me on random new "problems" they wanted to fix with my car, and in fact they complimented me for having a vehicle in near-perfect condition! They were nice enough to point out one problem they *had* noticed, but instead of trying to push me to fix it with them right away, they said I was in good enough shape that I probably wouldn't need to replace the parts for up to a year and half. They gave me a quote for the work and got me on my way without any pressure, and it felt great! I definitely recommend these guys for any kind of car work...they really know their stuff!

I don't understand the negative reviews here...when I went the food was excellent, and the service was both friendly and prompt. We had to wait a bit to get our check, but it wasn't really an issue.

This place is the best sushi restaurant in town! Not as expensive as KO Fusion or Kamakura, but with better quality food! The chef's special roll is definitely worth getting every time, they show off great creativity in the dish.

Excellent food and service! I got the combination platter, and it was great to get a sampling of a lot of their best dishes. Even though they were extremely busy, the server took my order after only a couple minutes wait, and he was apologetic about it taking even that long. I do wish that they had a combination platter that came with a Kebab and a little less spinach, as at least half my plate had spinach on it (not my favorite). Still, I really enjoyed the other dishes, and I did think the spinach dishes were pretty good as well. I'll definitely come back here again!

Great menu, great food, great place! I just checked this place out, and it was great! The steak sandwich is a little pricey, but at the same time totally worth it. Those filet medallions were cooked perfectly to order and the spices were delicious! Staff was friendly and attentive as well.
