    Their beer is growing on me. I was mad for awhile that their “blonde” style ale tasted nothing like a blonde but they do good job with their IPAs and stouts

    yea i think i may be unnecessarily harsh on them cause of how much i despise that beer. every time i've been to the tap room recently i've usually found a beer or two that's tolerable. i can just never remember which they are lol

    same. it's so fucking sterile. also, like a month after they opened, i went there on a nice afternoon to watch some march madness and they didn't even have a proper cable package for their TVs.

    last week they fired two of their highest salaried employees and as i understand it, they were layoffs. think they're just hemorrhaging money

    yep. no idea what their plan is long term with the first one. one of my best friends who used to be the manager got out a few months ago so i'm not as plugged in as i once was to what's going on with them, but he was the one who told me about those layoffs

    That's because the blonde is a travesty. Why the hell they released that, I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of them in general, but the blonde tastes like licking metal.

    We did this time my fiancée said it was the closest thing to Rez lemonade they have at her tribe’s Pow Wows. It was really good and I have had the Rez lemonade when we visited her family one of best non-alcoholic fruit drinks I’ve ever had.

    Back forty was pretty cool. Had a sausage and cracker plate and an asian chicken sandwich that was tasty. Their pilsner was good too. Also this trim tab sour is pretty good. Going to Bistro 218 tonight.

    We have to find transparent background logos of all the teams.

    My limited research hasn't found any.

    Bistro 218 was pretty good but not spectacular. The duck confit was solid. The smoked old fashioned tasted like shoe leather. We ordered pretty much all the apps and they were pretty good. If Highlands is a 9999 5 star on 247 this place is a 93 4 star.

    “This is an absolute lie—I never liked those tweets,” Wesley Britt said in his statement to 1819 News, which reported the existence of these likes. “Just like Big Tech maliciously and wrongly banned President Trump and helped rig the election against him, I have no doubt that the anti-Trump Big Tech backers of Mike Durant will falsify anything to help him win.”

    Yeah, I'm with you here. I was driving by last night c. 630 on the 1st Ave N viaduct and saw a bunch of kids playing ball, and thought "hell yeah".

    But yeah, if the kids are inside acting crazy, that's not great.

    He waited to spend money because his lane is not being in the race to the bottom. In theory, it presents the image of late momentum.
