I guess this thread has now become an annual thing when the car show is in Scottsdale. This is the cream of the crop as far as car shows go. The car show started earlier this week but the big time cars are usually auctioned off on Friday and Saturday.
This year there is a little twist though. Ro...

I keep getting this error message every time I try to boot my computer. The computer has two hard drives and will boot just fine to my old hard drive but will not boot to the new one that it usually boots from.
A week or so ago I downloaded a program and I accidentally installed one of those shi...

The older people in Calandros kinda gave me an odd look when I had a grocery cart of alcohol at 9:30am on a Wednesday. Not lying, 3 of them went to the other checkout aisle to pay instead of just getting behind me lol.

Friend of mine told me that they were closing down. I think he said they have new owners of the building and they are ending Ampersand's lease. I always thought the place sucked as a whole(mostly due to the crowd and a resident dj or two) but they did have some really good shows throughout the years...

Here are the fish heads as given to me. Let me start this by saying sorry about...

Ive only made it once before and some of the piees came out great and some were, well terrible.
I used an eye of round roast and cut it into 1 inch x 3 inch pieces with them being a 1/4 inch thick. I tried to make them around the same size but towards the end of the roast I tried thick and thin p...

| Food and Drink Board|| the obsession with the avenue pub - Jones on 1/4/14 at 11:53 am|
Is it because of the bottle selection? Asking this because the draft selection isn't up to par with the praise this place gets.
I love the neighborhood feel to it and it is a great bar.
Its the bottle selection, right?...

Im pretty sure the drain pipe that drains the water from the washer machine is clogged and I dont have a snake that will go all the way down the the tube and undo the clog. Hoping this is it and not something worse.
Anyone know of a guy that would come out tomorrow. Called home360 last night and ...

Went last night for a few beers and some wings and really noticed that the place has gone downhill since the early 2000s. They renovated the place a few years ago and I do think that it was a big improvement. The little bar area and look of the place is much better.
Had the hot wings and I gotta ...
