    80+ mph roller coasters in sub 40 degree weather? Eh...

    That will sting on the face, but is still preferable to waiting in line in 95 degree weather.  Standing in the blazing sun as the sweat drips down your back (and other places) can leave you a bit soggy and irritable...yuk!

    Bocado (the old Big Ben) is now open.

    The Trolley Barn might (?) have been training staff.

    Superica has discontinued take out due to a "staff shortage." The website makes me think it is chain wide.

    We tried the new Big Ben location last weekend and we'd give it a B-.  The food was actually very good (if you like English food), the service was slow, but I think you can (hopefully) chalk that up to new staff/training.  Our waitress didn't know anything about the menu or what beers were on tap.  The beer selection was also pretty poor, but maybe they didn't have all the taps ready.  The bar is quite large and looks great (sorry no pics) and the location is great considering lots of folks will utilize this space with it's proximity to Memorial Stadium.

    Speaking of Superica, the Strawberry Hill location is now only open for dinner, even during the weekend.  We tried to go there for lunch a few Saturday's back and were disappointed to see the place closed until 5:00pm.  This is surprising given how packed the place has been during weekend lunch, but I suppose they also have a staff shortage.

  3. I've certainly seen individuals throw trash out their window, but I think most trash (especially on interstates) comes from the garbage trucks themselves.  I've witnessed on several occasions plastic bags and paper flying out of garbage trucks while they're on the road.  Either way, the end result is the same and it looks horrible.

    Am I the only one here that cringes every time Mike Collins mentions "where is everyone gonna park" and "where's all the traffic gonna go?" in every other sentence. I don't know where he lives but I'm gonna assume a single family home in the suburbs, or Southpark depending on what public radio pays these days. 

    No you're not the only one.  I caught about 15 minutes of this conversation today and heard Mike ask multiple times about traffic/road widening; I wanted to scream at him (I may have actually)

    Did I imagine it or did the old bowling alley near Briar Creek recently get a paint job? I saw a truck parked in front of the building the other day and I haven’t seen a car there in at least 10 years. 

    It is being turned into an adult playground.  Was supposed to open in June, so not sure what the new target date will be.  Story below.
