Meanwhile in Houston...
The woodlands is a horrible representation of Houston. It could be anywhere in the country - it's about an hour with traffic from Houston proper and basically exists as it's own city. Midtown Houston is mostly industrial but there are a lot of amazing neighborhoods around it. I lived in the galleria area for a few years which was very nice - just don't try to drive by the actual galleria and it's great. Wife and I had a great place to live that was amazingly affordable - predominantly residential but we had a 40-story building on our block. Also lived in the Heights for a few years ...

Not Quite Thread Worthy - March 2017
Driving out in West Texas we kept passing those blades on I-10 being carted on trailers and we had no idea what they could be, until we hit the wind farms. They're so much bigger up close than you'd think.

I will never understand how a hand can transpire like this. 0% chance I'm ever getting to showdown with a bad beat qualifying hand and a pot under $10.

Costa Rica - Should I go or GTFO?
AC - if you're on one of the coasts you probably need it. However, if you're anywhere else you won't. Lots of the country is at elevation thus the temperature is pleasant all year. Gallo pinto is solid. I found the food in general in CR to be pretty good. One of my favorite restaurants in the world is in quepos / Manuel Antonio - Kapi Kapi. Churrasco Establado for the win.

Costa Rica - Should I go or GTFO?
I get what you're saying but when we lived in CR and went to an all inclusive we'd usually end up doing day-trips every day - ziplines, horseback riding, ocean cruises, etc. If you're planning to stay on resort, I'm with you, but there are usually some unique opportunities off campus to take advantage of.

It's on the top tier, for sure. 5 starred it on Untappd which is a rarity. Doesn't get a whole lot better.

Boizzz to Mennn is the next installment in our kollabo series with our west coast family Monkish Brewing Co.! Clocking in at 10.5%, Boizzz to Mennn is an insanely hopped triple IPA with Galaxy, Nelson, and Motueka hops. Soooo gooood. Hazy, juicy (though no juice added), hoppy... 10.5% is disguised insanely well. Hats off to The Veil.

*** Official OT Video Game Thread ***
I've predominantly been running two different versions of an agro warrior (one has Naga corsair + southsea captain and the other has bash+the 2/6 taunt that gets enraged), with a mixed in miracle rogue, discard warlock, and a jade shaman. I didn't buy some of the early adventures so I lack some cards to really make the priest/warlock decks really work... I also don't have Fandral Staghelm so any druid deck in this meta isn't an option. In general the agro decks seem easier to climb with anyway, which was my main goal. Went on a decent run last night to get to rank 5... glad to be locked in ...

Thought about trying for legend this month but I don't think I've got the patience. I'm currently rank 6. The meta is pretty boring... if you see a druid you 100% know it's a jade druid. If you see a Warrior it is one of 3 versions of an aggressive pirate warrior. If you see shaman, it's typically a standard midrange Jade shaman... most games are pretty predictable, which is why I felt like it would be a good time to push for legend... not much effort, just time. Looking forward to the new expansion. Hopefully they figure out a way to incorporate some new mechanics into the meta without ...

Swung by The Veil Brewing Co. on the way back to visit my folks last week. I have to say, I spent the last 2 years drinking pretty much exclusively Toppling Goliath in Iowa and The Veil is every bit as good. I had a 6oz pour of 'Never Meant': Never Meant is our house gose Never with a ton of peaches added to it. We actually added 30% more fruit to Never Meant than our other fruited Never batches. It was pretty unreal, to be honest. I also had a 6 oz pour of the Crucial Taunt3: Crucial Taunt cubed is the TRIPLE dry-hopped version of our 8% house DIPA Crucial Taunt. This is the most ...

Tv shows you just watched
Anyone seen person of interest' I typically avoid network tv shoes but this one has full stars on Netflix and a decent number of episodes under its belt. I've seen a handful of season 1, and it's been fine, just wondering if it ever goes to another level.

You got it, Pernicious was the IPA - thought it was very good. The Saison was called "Saison V", may have been a limited release or something but got in on tap. I picked up a bottle of their 'Freak of Nature' DIPA from Total Wine that I look forward to getting into later this week.

In NC for the weekend and enjoyed some Wicked Weed - very solid stuff. Had their main IPA and a Raspberry/Chcolate saison that was pretty bizarre but actually worked. Hope to find some more soon.

Whats the best mattress for under 2k these days?
We bought the foam mattress equivalent thing from Costco probably 6 years back. Queen was like 600-700 or something, very affordable and it's been great. I'd definitely go foam on my next mattress too.

Insurance should take care of it, no' Someone ran into my car in a parking lot back in college and did a decent amount of damage and the insurance covered it all, got me a rental car, etc.

Played the beta a bit... enjoyed playing with my friends, but in general I thought it was pretty average. Wouldn't play it on my own, so gonna pass. Overwatch and Hearthstone or the foreseeable future, it seems!
