    I was traveling last weekend and it was clear they didn’t have enough tsa agents to run the security lines. They grouped precheck with everyone else which I wasn’t expecting then only had three agents checking ID’s. Almost missed my flight. I’ve definitely experienced worse at other airports, but I was thrown off by how off their game they seemed.

    International terminal Wednesday morning at 10ish was literally under 5 minutes. No line at all.

    530am is probably the longest I see lines for security outside Thanksgiving/Christmas

    Shhhhhhhhh. Don't tell everyone. It's also by far the easiest way to get an uber home

    My rule is that if I land in C terminal or lower, go to the Intl terminal for Uber. B,A,T, go to T.

    The plane train ride, even from T, is probably faster than walking to the Uber lot and waiting on the chaos that is the Uber pick up point

    Uber lot? They pick you up curbside again.

    Oh really? Haven't traveled since pre Covid and wasn't sure they were back to picking up curbside on the domestic side.

    So a month ago I picked my parents up on the delta side and it was a fucking nightmare. I'm not sure that construction helped anything

    Did they finally get their liquor license? They were doing 2 free drinks with your meal or something like that

    yea that entire development is going to be (really already is) A+. Hop City with Monday Night + Wild Heaven + Best End. Also ASW Whiskey. Then within a short walk you have Lean Draft House, Boggs Social & Phew's Pies.

    Def check it out next time youre in/around the airport or downtown.

    They’ve got liquor. They were just giving away for “free” before they had license to sell is my understanding

    Girl Diver was pretty good, not great. Beer selection was awful, which in this day shouldn't be hard. Drink list was pretty good, had a few cocktails.

    Food was a little expensive-ish, but probably normal for seafood. Crabcakes were meh, dumplings and puff pastry apps were pretty decent. Had Octopus, which was pretty good.

    Is there a CASUAL Italian place in town better than Gio's? I see this La Grotta place is the top rated but that would require me to put on pants and likely have a reservation.
