Love Hopdoddy!
Fast-casual restaurants are a dime a dozen, but these 12 are likely to someday have way more than a dozen stores.

This is just a crazy time we're in now. I remember when this service first came out and it was well regarded. Interesting to see Google not approve of it anymore.
 
Google's +Matt Cutts announced Google penalized a guest blog network.  Which one, rumors suggest it was +Ann Smarty MyBlogGuest.com network.

I'd buy that watch in a heartbeat.
 
Announcing Android Wear: Information that moves with youhttp://goo.gl/b7oFh9

Today we’re announcing Android Wear, a project that extends Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. Going well beyond the mere act of just telling you the time, a range of new devices along with an expansive catalogue of apps will give you useful information when you need it most.

Running another test. If you'd like to help out, that's great, but you can also feel free to ignore this :-)

http://moz.com/rand/enchiridion-hoypoloi/ - I'm trying to test indexing speed and whether a Google+ share can get something indexed all by itself (and how long that takes). Yesterday I tested on Twitter and the URL took a little over 12 hours to get indexed (and I can't be sure it came directly through Twitter). Will be interesting to see what happens with G+.

Please DON'T share this URL anywhere but on G+ - no URL shorteners, no other social media, no links, etc. Thank you!

Not that I would buy Google Glass (as I am now more interested in Google Wear devices), but partnering with Luxottica could make them look better.
 
We’ve got some big news to share as we announce today that we have agreed to join forces with Luxottica. The Luxottica Group is a leader in premium, luxury and sports eyewear with over 5,000 optical and sun retail stores in the US and has a strong, well-balanced brand portfolio that includes Ray-Ban, Oakley, Vogue-Eyewear, Persol, Oliver Peoples, Alain Mikli and Arnette.

When the first eyeglasses appeared in the 13th century, they took off and over the next 700 years, they evolved over and over, with the first bifocals appearing in the 18th century, and the monocle and sunglasses shortly after. Nowadays, glasses are global phenomenon – a reflection of both function and fashion. 

We see Glass as the next chapter in this long story. Light, simple and modular, Glass introduces new functionality as your glasses get smarter – but bringing your own style to Glass is just as important. Earlier this year, we launched the Titanium Collection, designed by the Glass team. Between frames, shades, and colors, there are over 40 different ways for Explorers to make Glass their own today… but that’s not enough.

Luxottica understands how to build, distribute and sell great products that their clients and consumers love – something we care deeply about at Glass, too. They’ll bring design and manufacturing expertise to the mix, and, together, we’ll bring even more Glass style choices to our Explorers. In addition, Luxottica’s retail and wholesale distribution channels will serve us well when we make Glass available to more people down the road.

You’re not going to see Glass on your favorite Oakleys or Ray-Bans tomorrow, but today marks the start of a new chapter in Glass’s design. Excited? Because we definitely are.

The highlight of my time at Saucebox had to be the crispy Brussels sprouts. If you ever remember hating them as a child, this might change your mind. Cocktails from the extensive drink menu are delicious as well.

My highlight from a round on Heron Lakes had to be seeing the namesake itself, a big beautiful heron fly across the fairway on a nice sunny day and land in one of the water traps. Quite fitting.

The coffee shop before B & P was nice, but a little on the basic and boring side. I was happy to see another coffee shop come in because I do work about a block away and it's nice to great coffee place so close. This place gets all the little touches right. I love the small decor touches like old-school thermoses and ice chest for sodas. B & P makes some great food too.

SW Portland (Multnomah Village/Hillsdale not Goose Hollow/PSU) often times got left out of the great Portland microbrew scene. If dive bars aren't your taste there was really only Lucky Lab or McMenamins. But Sasquatch has really changed all that. It's a warm, inviting local place with great food and beer.

The Modern Man is top notch. My first experience was with the Alberta location which was awesome. The guys are very friendly yet professional. No detail is left untouched. This Mississippi location is even better - awesome neighborhood, great service, and there is more room at this location. The best part is the hidden "speakeasy" style bar downstairs, which makes TMM fit right in with the Mississippi area with the street itself being home to some of the best Portland bars. You don't even have to get a haircut to enjoy the bar.

With such great backing from the guys at Bunk, I had high hopes for Trigger. I know it's a new place and style of food, but service was just so poor. Just trying to take our order they had to come back twice to ask follow up questions (it's a taco...how hard is it to get a taco order down?), then they confused one order and missed another. When that happened you would think it's important for them to build positive relationships as a new restaurant and they would be happy to provide that missing order, but they didn't. They asked us to pay for that missing order. How much does it cost them to make just one taco? Overall it was a disappointment. I hope they improve their service.

One of my favorite places in Portland, I've never had a bad experience here. Great food, great drinks and it's scene whether you're here for lunch, happy hour or dinner.
