Maybe they just shouldn't eat on the subway.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Very satisfied with Great Neck Nissan. I am on my second leased vehicle from them. The sales team, and service department have been very helpful.

At first glance, The Liberty looks awesome! On warmer days, they open up the front. Patrons sit half outside on a comfy sofa slurping big fat oysters along with their martinis, or frosty pints of craft ale. Once inside, however it's a like most midtown bars - overcrowded, overpriced, and underwhelming. It's definitely a cool layout - lots of tables surround a center bar. There's also a basement level with another small bar and additional seating. If your plan is to have a couple of after-work drinks with colleagues, it's perfectly fine. The food is mediocre, at best. I didn't try the oysters the last time I was there, so maybe that's where I went wrong; fried calamari felt like a safe bet, but not here. I would drink there again, and perhaps next time I will give the oysters a fair shot.

This place is better when it's nice out. They open the windows and let the air and sun in. It creates a really pleasant atmosphere. That's not to say it's bad in winter. It isn't. They have a nice selection of delicious German biers. The food isn't bad either. Kind of strange though that they serve pizza, and no schnitzel.

I stayed at the Brown Palace on a recent business trip. Typically my business hotels are purely utilitarian which is hardly how I would describe this place. Rather, I would use words like elegant, posh, & luxurious. I stayed in the most basic room - a plush double bed, dual head with rainfall shower, a fresh pitcher of ice water and turn down service every night. I didn't indulge in their big breakfast, but I did enjoy a few after-hours libations. The tavern is simple, and has a well versed selection of tap beers. I also liked the cigar bar. I didn't smoke, but my colleague did. I enjoyed a few scotches and glasses of port though (over two visits). My colleague and I also ate our last evening in the main lobby area - oysters (raw & Rockefeller), shrimp, & calamari. Everything was outstanding! To top it off, the service is what hotel service should be. Helpful & friendly.

Ordered the Pitmaster Special for two of us to share with collard greens & the mac n cheese. Upon receiving it, it looked as if we'd been scammed - a small amount of food for a lot of money. But we were wrong. 5 slices of brisket, a large sausage link, 2 ribs, and a 1/4 chicken were plenty for my wife & me. Not only was it filling, but it is absolutely delicious! The sauce has spice & tang. The hot sauce adds a little extra something something. We also loved the creamy mac n cheese, and savory collards. We were feeling a bit frisky, so we finished the meal with the banana pudding which is comparable to anything I've ever had in the south. We even let our daughter try a little bit of the chicken, and banana pudding. Not bad for her first taste of each.

When Saul decided to pack it in and move to the Brooklyn Museum I was heartbroken. Not because I ate at Saul all the time (who could afford that?) but because I was losing a good neighbor. Thankfully we still had Red Gravy around the corner for those special occasions when the other spots were just not fancy enough. Plus, who doesn't love Southern Italian food? The problem with Red Gravy isn't the food (it's delicious), the atmosphere (fun & relaxing), the drinks (potent), or even the price (let's just say, more than I would normally spend). The problem last night was the service. I don't know if our waiter was new, or having a bad night, or just a bad waiter. Our cocktails were late. They tried to serve our wine before the cocktails even arrived. He didn't seem to really know the menu. Saul's signature restaurant was special because you felt taken care of. Red Gravy matches Saul in the caliber of the food, but not in service. Will I return? Probably at some point. I enjoyed my meal, but this is Brooklyn and we have plenty of choices for all types of cuisine.

Lunch in midtown New York can be tricky. There's not much in between fast food and the extra nice sit-down restaurants. This is where lunch counters come in. Fork & Spoon is one of those places that has a little bit of everything - deli, hot buffet, sushi. Where I find they really excel is in their Asian noodle soups. Nothing warms you up on a cold day, or knocks a cold out of your system early like a steaming bowl of pho, ramen, or udon noodles. They are made to order, so there's nothing in each soup that you won't like. They also have an Asian rice bar which is not nearly as good, and their salad bar (like most salad bars) is questionable.
