Ah HA! Finally, the first hints of VR food! Been wondering when we'd see 3d printing & VR combine for a more intelligent (and varied!) diet.

Obviously, there's a long way to go, but this looks like (potentially) a great step! :)

Note the inspiration for the product: Hook! :)
Project Nourished reexamines modern methods of dietary consumption by allowing participants to experience fine dining without concern for caloric intake or other health-related issues.

We had such a GREAT time last night at +5 Napkin Burger! Special thanks go out to our waitress Bunny (who was just THE BEST), and the manager +Stephen Tang! Steve, if you get this, please thank Bunny for us, and show her how the pics we asked her to take came out?

If you ever get a chance, check them out! I'm VERY picky about my #FrenchFries , and these were CRAZY good! We all loved our burgers (+Matthew Toney-Bentley got the BBLT, +Carrie Bentley the Asiago Turkey, and I tried the Lamb Kofta! All three were inhaled! :)

HOLY COW! +Tesla Motors​ makes a car for people who live in my (snowy) neck of the woods! It has TWO motors - one for the front, one for the rear. And it has two driving modes too: Sport, and (not kidding) Insane. 🙌😁👍🚗

Oh, and happy Valentines! Honey, to celebrate V-day, #letsgetaTesla! 😋
Fear; confusion; moments of spontaneous euphoria. Side effects of a prescription painkiller? No. Well… yes, maybe. But it’s also the rapid-fire spectrum of emotion you experience when you ride in...

PSA to friends and family without cable - you can watch the big game online (legally) nfl.com!
You may watch it because you’re a football fan. Or for the ads. Or simply because it’s tradition. Regardless of the reason, when the Super Bowl begins on Sunday, you’re going to want to be watching — even if you don’t have cable, or maybe not even a TV. That’s because just like last year,…

Oh, a robot to make pictures in the sand (a la the #logo programming language)! Oh, and it's made by +Disney! :D
Look — I love my job. But damn do the folks at Disney's research labs have a fun looking gig. Their latest crazy creation: a robot that can draw..

Oh, to have limitless funds... or at least a couple of grand worth of "Fun Money". That omni treadmill pairs up SO NICELY with my future PrioVR suit. :)

That said, I am ALSO looking forward to my someday-when-I-win-the-lotto (FeelThree) motion simulator... :)

I've been here many times over the years, and I was always very happy. I have fond memories of coming here in my early adulthood. It's the first place I ever tried General Tso's for crying out loud! Sadly, the last 3 or 4 times I've been here (all over the course of about a year, maybe two), it's been very disappointing. The food is stale, the service is iffy, and the whole experience isn't worth the price. What does it say about a place like this when the soups aren't even warm? Not hot, mind you, I'd settle for warm! When I left this time I made sure to tell the hostess that we would not be coming back again, and I just wanted to save others the effort and disappointment. Should the owner see this and wish to reach out to me, I'm happy to discuss it, though I don't think there's anything to be done to change it.

The food is OK (not great, not poor), the prices are a LITTLE high, but the real issue is that it takes FOREVER to get served there. I'm not sure where in the staff the issue lies, but it's kept me away from there for years at a time.

My wife & I went here just a few short days ago for a second honeymoon. Suffice it to say, when we walked into our room, we were floored. Between the sitting room out front, the spacious 2 person shower (a REAL two person shower, with two shower heads!), the jacuzzi RIGHT NEXT TO THE BED, the gorgeous bay windows & the gas fireplace (which was understandably non-functional in the summer heat), it was more than I expected for their "Standard" rooms (as opposed to their more impressive named rooms). During our three days & two nights there we interacted with a number of the staff, and without fail they were friendly & we really felt that they would do whatever they could to make our stay more enjoyable (this was put to the test when we came up empty handed after thinking we'd packed a cork screw - thankfully, they were able to come through for us. :) They did offer free wifi, but if it's something that matters to you, make sure to ask to be put in a room close to the access point, as they seemed to only have one, and I suspect that rooms much further away from it than ours would have tough time getting a signal. And note that in the area cell phone service can be anywhere from spotty to non-existent. I'm a VERY picky sleeper. I have a bit of a bad back, and generally have a tough time sleeping anywhere that's not home. I found the beds to be firm (which is not, by itself a bad thing - I personally prefer a firm mattress to a soft one), and slept like a baby, which, again, is rare for me. All in all, a really great time, with wonderful people. We'll be going back again. As for the other negative reviews, not sure what happened, but I'm happy to say that our experience was nothing like that. Also, if you're hungry, make sure to check out the Red Parka Steakhouse & Pub. We went for dinner one night, and nachos the next day. Great fare! And right next door is the Vintage Baking Co. The owner (I think) is VERY knowledgeable about breads & wines. I can't speak for the Tompsion House, as we waited there for 10 minutes before finally walking out after not being even acknowledged (this was with tables open, and everything - they just couldn't be troubled to even seat us let alone serve us). Edit - For some reason, my paragraph seperations arn't showing up, so this looks like a wall of text. My apologies. TL, DR - Great place, great people, go there now! :)
