Fix my phone!  - 
 
Anyone know how to solve this?

 "Google Play services, which some of your applications rely on, is not supported by your device. Please contact the manufacturer for assistance"

I booted up my Galaxy Nexus and now keep getting this error, even after reboot. All my apps don't work and the the Google Play Store won't even open.

Decided to flash the google stock images on my phone. It fixed my Play Services problem and got rid of the general lag of 4.2.2. My phone was really slow since the upgrade from Verizon.

If you really care about JS application performance, you should start by optimizing the right things.

One of the best comedy places in New York ( I have been to almost every stand-up venue in the city). Great for a group of people. The show consists of two teams competing to get the most laughs from the audience. They play a variety of different improv games, but everything starts from suggestions in the audience. Think "Whose line is it anyways?" on steroids. It's a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night. I can't recommend it more.

Good gym with all the necessary equipment. It can get crowded after work, so get there before 6 or after 8. The locker rooms could use some work, but they are on par with other gyms in the price range. If you are a woman, be prepared to get asked a million times to sign-up private training sessions. My girlfriend has been going there for 3 months and they still keep asking.

Decent ice cream. Soft serve is pretty good. Very little selection.

Great selection for lunch. The place has a large buffet with really good/fresh food. There are also dishes made to order. It's perfect neutral lunch option.

Great place to play basketball. Around 8 full courts. Prices are a little expensive and it is difficult to get to.

Great barbeque in Williamsburg. Can get very crowded. Best to come at odd times.

Finally a good Chinese restaurant near Williamsburg! I ordered delivery and it arrived in around an hour. Definitely a little long, but the food was still hot. I ordered General Tso and chicken with broccoli. Both were great. The large orders are huge. I imagine most people can't even finish half. It is a really good value for $9. Definitely recommended.
