Loved this post on good design from +Avinash Kaushik! It's crazy how certain massive brands with massive budgets have such lousy UX, and smaller players can do so much more with subtle but effective optimization.
 
Why do so many websites stink so much? Even big ones.

In my latest post, http://goo.gl/r8xQu, I was compelled to answer this important question. But rather than simply critique big companies with loads of money that stink, I've taken seven companies that truly rock digital marketing and create experiences that you are compelled to sit back and admire.

It is not simply about the prettiness, it is about identifying the perfect combination of form and function. The companies as good examples are: +Songza, +John Lewis, Innocent Drinks, +AAA, +Shopbop, Security Choice, and Method.

In every case, as below, the post highlights what they do exceptionally well. And I take the time to highlight how their (bigger) competitors miss opportunities (in this case +Neiman Marcus and +Nordstrom, Inc).

The post ends with 18 lessons in a pdf you can download: http://goo.gl/r8xQu

Visited Torito during my annual vacation to Toronto. Went with 6 other people and enjoyed an evening full of tasty tapas. My favorites were: 1. Stuffed Date Pintxos Wrapped with Double Smoked Bacon 2. White Bass Ceviche with Corn, Fresh Chili Peppers and Cilantro 3. Albondigas de Cordero: Lamb Meatballs with Mint and Tomato Preserve The service was welcoming, friendly, and helpful with tapas recommendations. We took our time eating, drinking, talking, and I didn't feel rushed to eat and leave. Unless you can get the big corner table, that can seat 7-ish, I would recommend going to this place with 2-4 people max.

All in all, this is fantastic place to spend time with a small group of people. I've been here 4 times since they opened a couple months back. After indulging in both food and drink here, here are my recommendations: 1. Go for a more adventurous pizza. The cheese pizza or single meat pizzas are good, but A4's specialty pizzas like the butternut squash or clam and bacon pizza are out of this world. Spend a few more dollars, it's worth it. 2. As an appetizer, get the garlic knots. Buttery, garlicky, and lemony goodness served in a skillet. Probably the best garlic knots I've ever had. 3. Their beer taps change frequently. I usually get a Jack's abbey or something else seasonal. 4. Sit at the bar or by the window bar, to avoid constant traffic flowing by your table. 5. Based on the size of the restaurant, this place is optimal for a group of 2. You could do 3 and saddle up to the bar if there is room. Don't miss this place if you're in the neighborhood.

Just had a wonderful camping experience in Lackawaxen. Jane and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our camp site was 1.5 miles away from the bathhouse in a secluded site next to a very slow moving stream. If you need to be near a bathroom, make sure to get a campsite near the bathhouse. Otherwise, you have to drive every time you need a shower or a toilet. The bathhouse facilities were some of the best and cleanest I've seen for a campground. During the 2nd afternoon, we went tubing down by Landers River Trips on the Deleware River. If I could do it again, I would have taken the 5 hour tubing trip, but we came a bit late and the weather was a little sketchy, so we decided to just float the rapids, which is a quarter mile circuit. Pretty fun activity and tubes only cost $10 a day to rent. Being only 5 hours away from Boston, I recommend this place for people wanting to camp, tube, and check out the Poconos.

I finally went to Bronwyn last night for dinner, and left feeling full and happy. To get a sampling across the menu, we ordered a haus bretzel, 2 kinds of wurst (currywurst and knacker), and the biersuppe. The food was tasty, presentation was solid, and atmosphere was vibrant. I look forward to checking out their patio/beer garden when that opens up.

Came here for dinner and loved it. For appetizers we had: 1. Cheese plate: 3 kinds of cheeses, grapes, and baguettes. Pretty good overall. 2. Oysters: They had 6 varieties of oysters. We had 2 kinds. Very fresh! 3. Fried razor clams: Generous portion size for an appetizer. At most places, this appetizer would be half the size. The clams and sauce were tasty. For entree, I had: 1. Swordfish Chop with fingerling potatoes. The portion was large and I was able to take half of the swordfish home for the next day. They said that this entree was a special. They should have this as a standing menu item, because it was delicious! I fully enjoyed the dinner and drinks. On Sundays they have $1 oysters. If I were to go back, I would probably go for cheap fresh tasty oysters on Sundays. If I lived in Marlboro, I'd probably go to this place frequently. They also had some live jazz going on which added to the mood.

Stopped in for a quick lunch before heading to Lackawaxen for camping. I had the chicken chilaquiles lunch entreee and an horchata. I thought the food was pretty tasty and well presented. The lunch also came with chips and salsa. The salsa was awesome. It had a lot of pepper in it, which is a trick I'm going to try in my own homemade salsa next same. The entree was $9. Not too bad for a large plate of mexican food. After eating here, I also recommend checking out the tie-die shirt store next door. Pretty unique place. Tie-die seemed to be a pretty big thing in Honesdale.

Had a great caesar salad, juicy burger and sweet potato tots at the ArtBar yesterday. Service and food were both A+. The view of the Charles also make this place a gem. I recommend the ArtBar if you find yourself in East Cambridge.
