What do you think? Is a redesign of Myspace going to save it? I'm a little doubtful.
 
Myspace teases a completely rethought service, and believe it or not, it looks beautiful: http://tnw.to/i5Hv Do you like the new look?

Miguel's Cocina Mexican Restaurant
1351 Orange Avenue, Coronado, CA 92118
Decore is awesome, simply the best. While it's usually packed, its totally worth it. The food is nothing awesome, but you won't be let down. It delivers on the promise of a fun, good time at a mexican restaurant. Come here for a fun time, however if you're a serious mexican "food-ie" you may be a bit let down.

So if you look online the pulse is that the new iPhone is a bit of a flop...nothing really that innovative...

What do you think?

In my opinion, Roy's Waikoloa is by far the best restaurant in the chain. Having been visiting the Big Island for 15 years, Roy's Waikoloa consistently delivers top-quality food and has pretty good service. Recommend the seared Ahi as it's a staple at the restaurant. Additionally, hats off the dessert chef - they have the best pineapple upside down cake I've ever had. A word of warning, the restaurant can be at time a bit noisy and chilly but it is totally worth it! I love dining at Roy's and can't wait for my next trip back out to Kona to visit it again!

If you're looking for some fresh seafood the Hawgs Seafood is a good bet. This South Bay eatery is part of the same chain located in Santa Cruz. The kitchen serves up simple, yet tasty dishes that are sometimes a bit pricey for what you get. Regardless, Hagws is a great place to dine - but be prepared to wait around a little bit if there's a sharks game that night.

Stayed here kinda spontaneously and was worth it. The Dream Inn's pool deck is by far the best in Santa Cruz - especially when it's sunny and warm out. Rooms are decent for the price - they are great for Santa Cruz standards - clean, decent beds, and an ok bathroom. Again, the views are what you're really paying for and they're worth every penny. Their restaurant, Aquarius, is pretty good as well. Overall, when staying in Santa Cruz the Dream Inn is the best you can get. Can't wait to return!

Food here is excellent. Boasting a huge sushi selection, as well as other dishes for those who may want something else (i.e. lobster ravioli) as well as friendly staff it's my favorite sushi place in Kona. Must tries are the Ahi carpaccio with peanuts - it's amazing - and the Sensai roll. If you're in Kona, then Sensai is a must try!

If you like dim sum, than its a great place. Unlike traditional dim sum places, there are no screaming waiters pushing around carts. Instead, Hakkasan has taken the dim sum experience and reinvented it. It's a much more refined, quiet and relaxing place. Diners order freshly made dishes off of menus with an extremely polite and knowledgable staff. If you want dim sum minus the noise and chaos then this place is excellent. I truly loved it and will certainty be back!

Ulu is the Four Seasons reboot of their old fine dining restaurant, Pahu i'a. Opened in September of 2012, Ulu still has all of the charm and fun of Pahu i'a. Diners enjoy their meals while sitting alfresco watching the sunset only yards from the beach. The menu offers a great selection of seafood, some sushi as well as chicken and beef. I ate the Opah and it was excellent. The staff was very attentive and knowledgable, something you would expect at a Four Seasons. All together, it was a great dining experience - although a little on the pricey side - I'll be coming back very soon.

If you're lucky enough to actually get a table with a view then maybe then it's worth it's worth the visit. However, if you are like me and make a reservation several weeks in advance and state that it's a birthday and get a table in the LAST ROW of the restaurant then it's a total waste. The cuts are average and the seafood is what you'd expect from a chop house. Not bad, but typical and uninspired. The decore is ok, a bit dated and while the service was good, I was generally not impressed with the overall experience - particularly at the price.
