This is worse than Mario - 
(yes, I am on my way to the BFO - just saw all your ways to socialize - proud to say I do not even know what half of them are).

It’s Monday! So here is my new mantra on my mirror for the week. Each week I write a little inspirational message on a post-it and put it on my bathroom

Introduction

My name is Mike Lawson.


I love: eating too fast; podcasts; reading Joan Didion novels and imagining that I wrote them; singing when I'm alone; over sharing on the internet; caffeine; teaching things to children; the smell of plastic; my family and friends; and telling stories.

I hate: being wrong; when good books get turned into crappy films; Celine Dion; when people forget to say "thanks"; people that can't respect other religions; online shopping; that you can't microwave Styrofoam; and television shows that hook you on season 1, then get too complicated to enjoy.

Education
  • Dr. Jonas Salk Elementary School
  • Dale Junior High
  • Brea Junior High
  • Brea Olinda High School
  • The University of La Verne
  • Santa Ana Community College

Great ice cream options. You can't really go wrong with any flavor they have. When you get there will be a line out the door. Don't get discouraged. This place doesn't have a really good way to queue up the people waiting to get a scoop. Just find parking and then get in line. It moves pretty quickly. If you're getting ice cream only (not eating in) there won't be a ton of options to sit and lounge. You may need to walk around or get back in the car and leave. The food here is just really basic and average. But they make it up with the ice cream. The prices for everything is what you'd expect; nothing too high and nothing too low.

I'm a downtown Berkeley lunch person. If you're thinking of eating here for dinner, my review may not apply to you and your experience. This place does not compete with all of the other lunch places that are available in the area. At this hour many of us want to get in and get out. Sometimes we will sit down and get served, but Le Regal isn't prepared for that. Their staff is really rushed and somewhat aggressive. For an area with a huge lunch rush, I actually understand this. But for a place that makes me sit down (and expects gratuity) I expect a better level of service. On the menu it looks like the prices rival other things in the area. But it's an illusion because of the gratuity. All of that being said the food is okay.

The cocktails are incredible. The food is great. The prices are freaking high. When you're so close to other bars and restaurants I find it difficult to chose the really expensive one (maybe I'm cheap). All that being said, Comal has a great atmosphere and really good food. Try the guacamole and 3 salsa appetizer. All of it is really fresh. If you're just going in for a drink, the back patio is nice with a fire pit.

Delish! I had the original, my date had the spicy. So. Good. The ambiance was cool (check out the photos in the bathroom). Parking was easy. Prices were okay (a bit on the high side). This place only serves Mac & Cheese...so the wait time is quick because the macaroni is always prepared and waiting for you. Totally hipster, but fun.

I found my comic store. After browsing a little I was approached and given a little help to find some new series. They staff is friendly and they have all that I need. Their computer system could be better (I would love an email when my new s***t comes in), but that's the only complaint I could come up with. They hold my comics every week and are friendly and helpful. Parking sucks...but it's downtown Berkeley. Get a bike.

Solid. Beer, food, service, prices. The four most important categories for me when rating. Jupiter doesn't disappoint in any of these areas. If they have the blood orange cider, try it. Damn.

Great service and wonderful tea. I'm not a huge tea person, and thought that a place devoted entirely to tea might be a bit intimidating. But the staff here is super helpful and willing to help you find something you will like. I drink the green tea with mango puree and it's freaking incredible.
