checked out Butler Winery in Bloomington today because I was told that they have a good homebrew selection. I think this photo is evidence of that!

thought the way the light hit this tree in the rain was cool.

damn, not sure what to think of this... i can see that it might have some good aspects, but at the same time it looks like a good way for the insurance to fuck you.. oh what? you were going 56 in a 55 1 minute before impact? its your fault.

if i get a car that has one of these, can i remove it? doubt it.. i would try and lock it down...

Thought I would post on the brew bench that I made. It was mostly made as a place for me to mount a pump and the plate chiller. Is has a few issues, but it seems to work for the most part.

Let me know what you think! Any recommendations would be most welcome!

So how long have you been brewing? I love microbrews.

I'm trying to figure out what is going on.. anyone else had issues with bursters not working right? I tried to take out a ground of 3 L1 portals with no shields with a L5 burster and was only able to do about 3% damage to a L1 resonator... I was sitting right on top of it... frustrated....

Yeah today I was having some trouble with it. I kept hitting a portal with busters over and over and there was no change in the energy.

To me a lobby is a lobby, so that didn't really influence my rating. The rooms were nice and some of them offered little balconies. The rooms were nice. The desk was large enough to be useful, and the data-ports were active (useful if you use a travel router). Bathrooms were standard for hotels. The big selling point for me is that this hotel is extremely convenient to many shopping locations, restaurants, and the air force base. If I was in the area again I wouldn't rule out this hotel.

Never been here during an afternoon rush, but my two times stopping on the way to work have been pleasant. The brewed coffee was good and it seemed their specialty drinks were good. Didn't try any of their tea related products though. Also, price was reasonable. I would come here again. As a side, I'm sad this replaced the Caribou that used to be here, but at least it's not a Starbucks.

Went to try enjoy a Sunday breakfast at about 10:00. It took a few minutes to get a seat, then about 35-40 minutes to get our drinks/food ordered (we were one of the fortunate tables that had menus right away). After another 15 minutes we were told our server had "lost our ticket". Another 5 minutes after this notification we were given our drinks. Another 15 minutes we got our food. The food was a sole redeeming point of our visit. It seemed that the kitchen staff was on top of it because another table with a different server was in and out in about 25 minutes. The other side of the restaurant also seemed to be moving swiftly. On a scale of 1-5 our service was a 0. Absolutely terrible. If you get a good server I can imagine you could have a pleasant experience.

This is my 4th week at this hotel. I can't say that I have any complaints. The rooms have always been clean when I have arrived and the staff has been friendly. Out of the few Residence Inns I have stayed at in the DC area this one has the best WiFi I have experienced. It doesn't drop out and is nice and quick. Some other hotels I haven't been able to stream video, but here it's no problem. To me this is a huge plus! I have tried out two of their room types. The Studio and the One Bedroom with King bed. The studios only have showers (which I prefer) while the One Bedroom variant has the more traditional bath-tub/shower. The hotel is near a lot of good eating locations and has convenient access to the metro. You might not need to go out to eat too much as so far their "evening social" food has been great! This hotel has a nice fitness and pool area as well. Fitness is a combination of treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, free weights, and a couple of weight machines. Haven't experienced too much over-crowding. There is always something open to use. The only this missing that other Residence Inn's in northern Virginia have is beer in the lobby shop and beer/wine at the social, but this is such a tiny thing that it doesn't bother me one bit.

First time trying this place out and I am very pleased! one of the few coffee shops that don't over sweeten their drinks. I can actually taste espresso!

They have some great salads. Enjoyed every time I have been here! Salads are pretty expensive, but I have learned to expect to pay the price for eating healthier. I haven't been disappointed leaving Sweetgreen yet!

I was looking to catch the second half of a soccer match and walked by World of Beer and saw the game on one of their TVs. It wasn't very busy at the time so I grabbed a table to watch the game. The servers weren't pushy and showed up whenever my drinks were nearly empty. This is exactly what I like in servers so great job! I can't really comment on the decor. It's a bar with TVs and it was dark. Looked like a nice bar, wasn't trashy. The bar had a good selection on tap and also a ton of bottled and caned options. I didn't test the servers knowledge of the beers, but rather just ordered what I wanted. Everything was delivered promptly and courteously. I really do think I have found a good bar for my remaining time in the area!
