#Ingress internal issues. Feel free to ignore, unless you're interested. In which case let me know so I can recruit you. We've got a new achievement for that...
 
With 90 minutes having passed since the announcement of the Recruiter badge, I would like to propose a community petition to remove the badge. There are various reasons, just look at any post in the ingress community today.

Hi, gadget-savvy friends. I'm looking for a bluetooth headset for my phone that can also double as a pair of decent earphones, so I can watch Netflix or HBOGo on my commute. +Gustavo G. had a pretty good one on Saturday (what was the brand and model again, Gus?), but I'm open to suggestions. I would prefer to spend less than $50.

I think I'll ask my wife to make the sleeve, though. Pennies worth of fleece and a minute of sewing.

Now that cocktails in jam jars have made it to EastEnders, what's next for those who would be 'alternative'? • Have you spotted any hipsters in the wild?

Spotted at Panda Express: very young guy with mustache, triforce logo ironed on backpack, Oculus-labeled plastic case. #geeksinthewild

It looked like he might have been carrying an actual Oculus Rift headset. The box was the right size for it. And DePaul has a program right nearby that includes video game design.

Chicago rarely has a sports championship to celebrate. I think that's part of the reason Chicago is turning out in force for this Blackhawks Stanley Cup rally, as seen from my office window.

Of course, if it were a Bears or Bulls championship, this would go on for days instead of hours.

Arts & Culture Finance & Strategy Leader
Introduction
Renaissance geek, seeking insight in a soundbite world. But they don't pay me for that. They pay me to take care of financial issues and strategic planning in the arts & culture nonprofit sector.
Work
Occupation
Deputy Director at Lyric Opera of Chicago
Recently, during fundraising events held by two different nonprofit organizations at the same venue, the venue got permission from a neighboring parking lot owner for the attendees of these events to park in his lot. During the events, Rendered Services illegally towed 10 cars that were parked in this lot with the permission of the lot's owner. They damaged one of these vehicles, a RWD car that is not exotic nor rare, by towing it without a flatbed, causing thousands of dollars in damage to it. Of course, it is impossible to reach the towing company's manager on duty, because he is "in and out all day." I hope the insurance company's subrogation specialists can do a better job, and I hope the parking lot owner terminates their contract.

I've just tried the Sweet Greens & Lemon. I don't think they know what the word "sweet" means. The taste is predominantly that of celery, which is not sweet and which I do not like. Unfortunately I was expecting it to taste more like Odwalla's or Naked's "superfood." It was also expensive. Even after a $1 off coupon, which got me to try it, it was about $5.50.

The food is great. Several notches above your average falafel/Middle Eastern food joint. My favorites are the fattat plates with sauteed chick peas and pine nuts on top. I also like the wraps, which I think is saying a lot, since I usually don't like wraps. I especially like the one with chicken and french fries. It sounds weird, but it's great.

I had a great experience with Kathleen Tomayo. She knows how to draw, which gave me a lot of confidence right from the start. She was also really nice and worked with me by email on what I wanted to do before I went in for the tattoo. When my blood sugar got low, she gave me gummy worms. And never, ever did they give me any cooler-than-thou attitude.

Not a fan of Jim Oberweiss' political stances nor his racist comments about immigrants. But the ice cream is delicious and the service is good. Lots of staff and customers, by the way were people of color.

Update: Hours on Google Maps are wrong. I wanted to buy a growler of beer on the way out of town because I really liked it, and a sign on the door says new hours, open at 4pm. Suck town. I stopped in to try the beer, and was pleasantly surprised by the food, too. The goat cheese puffs were great, the honeyed butter with the beer bread is delicious. The Asian chicken salad and the meat/cheese plate were only so-so, though. The beer flight was very reasonably priced (2 oz pours of 6 beers for $5 or $6). Unlike some beer flights at some brew pubs, you don't get so much beer that it's dodgy to drive home after. But the best thing was the summer seasonal Belgian saison. It was so good--a great example of the style. Citrusy and refreshing. Malty without overdoing it for summer. Just a little tart but without being too sour for craft beer newbies. Overall balanced and better than all the year-round brews on tap, though they weren't too shabby, either. This is well-made beer.
