Story
Tagline
Computer Scientist. Vegetarian. Homebrewer. Musician.
Introduction
I'm a Googler and a computer scientist whose dissertation was on coordinating autonomous vehicles at intersections. I've been a vegetarian since 2004 for basically all the reasons except flavor and religion. I play the guitar and am a music lover with a very eclectic collection. I also like to run, make my own beer, use American Sign Language, and play with my kids.
Bragging rights
Have 2 kids and survived 7.5 years of graduate school. You can trust me, I'm a doctor.

Someone was tasteful enough to drink a DFH 90-minute, but apparently not cool enough to dispose of the bottle responsibly.

Every beer here is a winner. The Trail Gnome IPA is especially distinctive, and their lagers are also a cut above.

Some excellent vegetarian options including a butternut squash enchilada, and some excellent tamales. Flan was also quite good.

Rooms were clean, location was super convenient to Fairview. Free breakfast was middling, but the price was right.
