Chocolate Bacon

I do not recommend Chocolate Bacon, instead just get some bacon and chocolate.

The best card game, no one has ever heard of. In Rack-O you try to be the first to line up your cards from lowest to highest, without re arranging the cards you have. You have to draw and discard cards and hope no one else beats you to do it. You can go for the quick victory and score 75 points, but if you can wait and get three cards in sequential order you get 50 bonus points, but only if you win. If someone else beats you to it, there is no bonus. Original Rack-O is a simple, addictive card game that doesn't have any wild cards or mess like that. Newer versions of the game are a little less true to form, but you can easily ignore the wild cards and play straight.

Explaining the game and why it is so fun is hard to do, but simply stated, it is just the most fun you'll ever have loosing to me in a card game

Jack in the Box

The fast food burger joint is gaining fast in popularity but they've been around a long time. The reason you probably havent heard of them is what they don't want you to know.

"In 1993, Jack in the Box suffered a major crisis involving E. coli bacteria. Some people (many of them children) died and others became sick after eating undercooked patties contaminated with the bacteria at locations in the Seattle area and other parts of the Pacific Northwest. The chain was faced with several lawsuits, each of which was quickly settled. Due to the backlash reaction to the crisis, Jack in the Box closed every single location in Colorado by May 1996." (Wikipedia)

I find it appalling that they think they can act like it never happened. Eat there at your discretion.

WLEX Channel 18

The local NBC affiliate has fallen out of favor after pre-empting coverage of the LIVE US Figure Skating National Championships to show a 3 hour special on the African-American Ball from the previous weekend that they could have shown any time. They added insult to injury by advertising on their website that their HD channel was going to show the figure skating, but changed plans one day in advance to also show the Ball on HD. I know I want to watch previously live skating from 2-5am instead of sleeping. One question... Can you return a slightly used HD tuner?

Located in Natural Bridge Park right by Red River Gorge. This is a must stop for all hikers, campers, and climbers. They offer pizzas in 2, 4, and 8 pieces (1/4, 1/2, and 16''). You can mix and match any toppings or sauces of your choice. They also serve Ale-8-One. This is a great place to end a day of exercise and outdoorsy time.

Surf's Up Grille

Located at/near Fayette Place across from Bella Notte. We went as a group of twelve on a Friday night, which should not have been a problem because there weren't many people there. It took a long time to get even our drink orders. We were there about an hour before getting our food at this semi-fast food restaurant. The french fries were disgusting. The burger bun was slightly burnt. A friend's quesadilla looked like bean paste in a burnt tortilla.

Summary: bad food; bad service

I went to the Graeters in Palomar Center and bought a butter pecan ice cream cone that costs $3.71 but I only had $3.57 in cash on me at the time so I paid with the cash I had and offered to pay the remaining 14 cents with my credit card (multiple format transactions can be done at the register) and they said dont worry about it. They saved me 14 cents!
