Anyone have any first-hand experience with using a Simple Choice plan in Italy? I'm curious to know what to expect while traveling abroad. I know what's advertised, but I'm interested in a first hand account.

Thanks!

Didn't realize there was a PhpStorm plugin for #Laravel. Very handy!

Default parameters in JavaScript?! Yes, please!
Default and Rest parameters are two cool features in ECMAScript 6. This article gives an overview of these features and shows how to use them today using Traceur.

I recently had my first appointment and was very happy with the staff, service and facilities. The office is modern and clean. Dr. Schantz is very personable and knows her stuff. I think I've found my new dentist for the foreseeable future.

A huge sports bar with three levels, tasty food and a good vibe. I've seen countless NFL games and am a regular on any given Sunday - name your team and they'll have your game. Pro tip: if you want a table on the third floor on Sunday, call and make a reservation earlier in the week. It gets very packed and you won't get a table past 12:30pm.

Being a native New Yorker, I've found the choices for good pizza in Arlington a bit lacking. I was relieved to stumble upon Cafe Pizzaiolo ̵ one of the few places in the area where you can get a good NY-style thin crust. Their pasta dishes are also generous and tasty. If I'm ever having pizza delivered, it comes from here.

The food is good, but not amazing. Being able to order online is a major plus - there's no language barrier while ordering over the phone. Delivery is very speedy - I've never had to wait longer than 25 minutes (granted I only live about a mile away). I wouldn't call the prices a steal but they're acceptable for the portion sizes.

I live within walking distance of this restaurant so I figured I would give it a shot after it was open for a few months. Our waiter admitted that waiting the few months was a good decision; they had time to get their ducks in a row and iron out any operating wrinkles. Overall, I had a very positive experience. We started with the "Bacon app," which was pretty good but could have been a little more salty for my taste. I had the brisket and mac & cheese for my entree. The portion was generous and among the cheaper options on the menu (at $18). The meat was tender and the BBQ sauce served on the side was delicious. My girlfriend got the sea bass and despite sitting in too much broth, it was pretty tasty. We got the bacon cupcake for dessert and that was also delicious. I would return for the food. The staff was on the ball. We were constantly being tended to but not annoyingly so. Everyone was very nice and cordial. It seemed as though they would do whatever they could to please their customers. If I had any negative thing to say it would be the seating arrangement. I wasn't uncomfortable, but it felt like we were nearly on top of our neighboring fellow-patrons. There were booths across from the bar that seemed more spacious. In the end, we got an app, two entrees, a dessert and a bottle of wine. Our bill came out to be roughly $85. Personally, I think that's pretty good for a once-in-a-while date night.

A truly great experience from start to finish. The facility is very impressive and the staff is professional and personable. I felt well prepared before my surgery and as relaxed as one could be during it. Dr. Holzman was terrific and very supportive throughout the whole process (he even personally called me later that evening to see how my recovery was going). It has only been a week and I'm seeing 20/15; needless to say I'm an incredibly satisfied customer.
