+Anthony Jesmok I've looked at their website once or twice. When they redid it, it did look very modern, though, unfortunately, their route network just isn't reliable enough. Plus, surprisingly, last I checked, they don't have a mobile app, at least for Android.

The calm before the storm.
Desperately wanting +The George Washington University to call a Snow Day early on, because no one has time for midterms. In other news, +Google Now in DC is always on-point.

For the second time this year, +Wells Fargo randomly temporarily restricted my account, without telling me, as if I was someone sketchy. I have talked to 3 agents, who all seem to know nothing, have been asked multiple choice questions and am being told it is +Starbucks Coffee's problem, as if I had never refilled my Gold Card before.

To make matters worse, the first agent was so fixated on offering me new services instead of fixing my problems first. 

EDIT: I do really appreciate good customer service and am grateful to the dedicated men and women who do offer great assistance.

Sapporo is a unique Japanese restaurant in Scottsdale that has a wide selection of choices for lunch and dinner. *FOOD* Absolutely fantastic! Whether it is lunch or dinner, they have tasty choices. The appetizer ribs are heaven and taste delicious. They have a special type of sauce that makes it perfect. The fried calamari is crunchy and one of the best that I've had in the Scottsdale area. Again, they have a special type of dipping sauce that tops it all off. There are also tons of sushi and even some that aren't listed on the menu, so be sure to ask! Everything there is amazingly fresh and the food doesn't take too long to come. One plate comes after the other! *DECOR* Sapporo has a big restaurant and it feels very spacious. There are 6 teppans, like Beninhana if that's your thing. The rest of the restaurant, in the middle of the 6 teppans, consists of tables and booths, both very comfortable to stay in for a couple hours. The furniture and other decor is modern and new, especially with the atmosphere, which is very upbeat. There is loud and recent music that plays. It makes everyone want to get up and dance. *SERVICE* The waiters and waitresses always have a smile on their face. Our waiter made many jokes while he was serving us and made the experience great. This isn't the only time the waiter has made us smile. Most of the food comes out pretty quickly. However, when it is very busy, it may take a little while longer. It's always good to call ahead to try and make a reservation, if for dinner. If they're having a slow night, they'll let you know and say that a reservation isn't necessary! Lunch is a lot more peaceful and the music is not as loud, along with quieter chatter.

The food tastes fantastic and the fries are super crunchy and fresh every time! The restaurant is a little outdated and smells funky occasionally.

The food at Wildflower Bread Company is amazing. There are a lot of healthy selections to choose from, that are also tasty as well. My personal favorite is the Asian Chicken Salad, but the sandwiches are great too. The setting is awesome. It is very open and spacious. The middle of the restaurant has several couch chair type things which are great and comfortable to sit on while waiting for friends. I don't know how they do what they do. You order and they magically find you by finding your card that's on the table. No matter where you sit, they'll find you. The food usually comes very quickly. If going at lunchtime on weekends, it may be hard to find seats at first, but there are also great seats outside, in the shade. The staff is friendly and will accomodate you with whatever you need.

It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, especially when there are sports games! So make sure you want to wait, or get their a little bit early, unless you're there to watch. This can also make for slow service at times, but they try their best! The atmosphere is great, everybody's dining and having a great time! Make sure to try the Zipps or Golden Wings. They're delicious and cooked just right so that the outside is crispy.
