| O-T Lounge|| re: OT Christians: how did you figure out what denomination you are? - BrentED on 7/27/14 at 10:29 pm|
I grew up Baptist. Wife raised Catholic. I went to Catholic church with her while we dated. Found "compromise" in Methodist church when we had our first son. I say "compromise" because while we were raised baptist/catholic, we both were not opposed to switching. She just didn't like the baptist meth...

Not really much you can do, although it doesn't seem like it was your fault. If you order one of these or something similar, it would be a nice gesture.

Just have to give credit where credit is due. A little past the midway point of my trip I've probably checked out 3/4s of the suggestions in this thread. Posting from blue mountain brewery. Bodo is the best bagel and I haven't been to a bar on the list that wasn't a good time. OT travel delivers yet...

Thanks. I'll definitely hit up Monticello and am always in search of a good bagel.

| O-T Lounge|| Charlottesville, VA for 2 Weeks - BrentED on 7/13/14 at 10:47 pm|
Headed to Charlottesville for 2 weeks tomorrow for class for work. Anybody familiar with the area? What are some good restaurants , bars, sites I should check out while I'm in town? Any good live music venues or events going on right now I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance....
| Music Board|| Reintroduced - Barenaked Ladies - BrentED on 7/11/14 at 1:00 am|
Do you ever have a phase where you kinda get reintroduced to a band and they're a bit more than you gave them credit for years ago? Happened to me recently with BNL.
I think everybody knows all the hits. Late 90s/early 2000s these guys were all over the radio. But they've been coming on my Post G...

I'll agree with you. Others may talk shite about it. But I enjoyed the hell outta this movie when it came out. Have seen it multiple times. Great story, well developed characters, and fantastic music. Haven't seen it in years so I may have to rewatch.
Regarding the musical. . . My brother is in ...

Wasn't there talk on here sometime back about a bike trail throughout a good chunk of the city? I think it started somewhere around the mall. Anybody know anything on the progress of this or know where the proposed path was to run through? Thanks in advance....

| O-T Lounge|| Tablets for Kids - BrentED on 7/2/14 at 9:34 am|
First, what are the OTs thoughts on this? I initially came here to ask recommendations as to what tablet to get, but figure I'm going to get more of opinions as how my kid is too young so I'll go ahead and invite that discussion. My son is 2 and he loves playing the different apps on my wife's iPho...
