The artisan whiskey industry has a big secret—many of the ‘small-batch’ distillers are actually buying their product from a large factory in Indiana.

This looks like it could be quite refreshing!

Have any of you tried it?

If you haven't tried pressure-brewed iced coffee—AKA nitro coffee—you need to add it to your summer bucket list.
The nitro method brings out the sweeter flavors in the coffee

I had one a couple weeks ago at Lenox Cafe (129th & Lenox Avenue in Harlem).   It comes out looking like a Guiness when it pours.  The foam roils very slowly to the top, just like the head on a well-poured Guiness Stout.  The creamy mouthfeel made any other dairy addition unnecessary.  It was ice cold and very refreshing.  Although large and therefore a fairly large amount of coffee, it was easy to drink the whole thing.   The only thing I regretted was that I got it near 5pm and sleeping by 11 was not that easy!

The app will allow guests to make real-time personal requests for things like room service and fluffier pillows, as well as offering mobile check-in and checkout.

Just in case you were wondering, the amount of money hotels spend on giving you WiFi access everywhere from the lobby to your bathroom has its costs, and they might be more than you think.
 
Hotel WiFi got you down? What's behind that slow speed: http://tandl.me/1JrBaR4

Open discussion, I don't remember a commenting requirement of professional opinions only, and I'm certainly not quoting a job. "Tens of thousands every few years" or $10K every year more or less work out the same, and I think it makes it a little easier to visualize how much money the article is saying needs to be invested yearly in hardware. That number seems high, and if hardware is the justification for having to pay for high speed data, then I think it's a pretty weak argument.

Brittani's Best Smoothie

I learned how to make this little meal replacement (or in-betweener) from my wife. The recipe is super simple: spinach, strawberries, Greek yogurt (I use fat free), agave nectar and just a touch of vanilla extract.

Yum! We make a similar smoothie but use Kefir instead of Greek yogurt and add flax and/or chia. Quick tip: always keep a bag of frozen mixed berries in the freezer for those times when fresh berries are on the grocery list :)

Is this the future of Google Glass?

Probably not, but it's a wonderful love story and a great look at the different ways in which we can see the world. Hats off to the content studio at +Marriott for this latest and greatest piece!

What do you think about GMOs?
 
If GMOs are safe, why not label them? Our CEO Rose Marcario speaks out for GMO labeling rights today on the blog and in DC alongside Just Label It and other CEOs. Join the cause to demand GMO labels: http://pat.ag/JustLabelGMOs

+Paul Matney Sorry, but there is NOT a scientific consensus on the safety of GMOs. Here is one of many peer reviewed papers http://www.enveurope.com/content/pdf/s12302-014-0034-1.pdf

And here is a list of scientist that feel the same way. http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/pageDocuments/DJ3UD7EDMG.pdf

I get why people think there is a consensus. Big dollars are buying that narrative and it's working. But the fact is that we just don't know. I'm not saying GMOs are dangerous. But we can't claim, at least not yet, that they are safe. In addition, if the US population wants them labelled, they should be labelled. End of story.

The least interesting man in the world.

I found myself with an hour of free time on my hands, so I thought I would try my hand at making a beer commercial. Why? Why not.

A little story on the beer: I received this from a yoga instructor at lululemon. We were receiving their goal setting class at the office when she told us to each look into our bags where we found a bottle of craft beer. The instructor had a goal of opening her own distillery and wanted to share her dream with us. In the spirit of sharing, I wanted to pass her gift forward by sharing my passion for creating digital stories in the hopes of one day shifting my career into digital marketing or video production. Cheers!

We decided to give +Fuzzy's Taco Shop​​ in Grapevine another try for breakfast and were kind of disappointed. I ordered the 'Big Fuzz' and the potatoes (although well seasoned and flavorful) came out cold. Brittani had some breakfast tacos and was underwhelmed, too. It's a shame, this place is right by our house and would be a great location for a weekly taco night or Sunday brunch.

I'm a big fan of the original Main Street Bakery in Grapevine, but work in Plano and decided to give this location a try. I went in by myself for a quick lunch and found that the restaurant is designed differently than the Grapevine location. Upon walking in the door, there is a host(ess) stand and next to it were a cluttered pile of menus. Since there was no host(ess) there, I picked up a menu to peer through the options. After about 30 seconds, the hostess came up and seated me. My waiter showed up shortly thereafter and took my drink order while I looked over the two menus. There was a main menu that offered breakfast, lunch and "entrees" as well as another menu of "specials" although none of the prices seemed to deviate from what was on the regular menu. Craving something with beef, I asked the waiter to help me choose between the beef sliders, tenderloin sandwich and the french dip. He assured me that the french dip was the way to go. I ordered with a side of fries (included). When the food came, the fries, sandwich and au jus were all warm, however as I started to dig in (and I'm a fast eater) the plate quickly became cold. It was very disappointing dipping a lukewarm sandwich into a lukewarm bowl of au jus. Likewise, the fries (shoe string and cooked to a perfect crispy golden brown) were totally cold halfway through my sandwich. While I was making my way through my mediocre lunch, I noticed the couple across from me had ordered a pair of french dips and had to ask that a hot bowl of au jus be brought to their table. If not pressed for time, I would have probably voiced concern over my lackluster meal. However, after having such fond experiences at the Grapevine location, I fear that this crew doesn't keep their standards nearly as high. If you're in The Shops of Legacy and you have enough time to grab a sandwich, there are plenty of other places nearby that will give you a much better experience, which is such a shame, because the Main Street in Grapevine is one of my favorite spots in town.

So-So Experience Tonight with Great Recovery Normally, I would give this place 4 stars. Only not 5 because I think the beer is too expensive. $7 a pint is pushing it. Tonight the service was subpar. Our waiter offered us dessert before we had our pizza. Twenty minutes later we're still waiting. It's my wife's 30th birthday. This is embarrassing for me. I hope it's embarrassing for him. Update: Manager apologized, bought us a pie and a pair of cocktails and the server made up. Everything turned out great! As they say, all's well that ends well.

Best Restaurant in Flower Mound There, I said it. Anamia's consistently delivers great service, wonderful drinks and amazing elevated Tex-Mex cuisine at reasonable prices. Come on the weekend and you'll usually find a line. Don't worry, it's worth the wait. Wanting to try the best of the best? The Tacos A La Mexicana feature a trio of succulent brisket tacos with a delicious cup of bean soup with an avocado salad and Mexican rice. Keep coming back and the staff will remember your face, your drink and your favorite things to order. This spot is full of energy and great for a family or first date. If I could give it six stars, I would.

Esparza's is a Grapevine staple. Located right off of Main Street, Esparza's offers a wide variety of Mexican and Tex Mex dishes along with a full bar. There is patio seating outside which is a great way to enjoy the cooler months in Texas. Drinks here can get expensive, with most margaritas between $10-$15. With just a few drinks and standard fare, you can quickly rack up the tab. Also, the inside dining room by the bar is very noisy. Pro: right across the street from an EV charging station Con: the local birds tend to frequent the patio outside, looking for stray tortilla strips
