Gotta love this one - even in a state that goes out of it's way to be unfriendly to the hospitality industry or anything involving alcohol they think DUI's are a waste of time, money and a drain on resources that could be used in much better ways.UTAH!

I have no idea why this particular missing person case bugs me so much. Maybe it's because it was a guy who was young enough to get himself out of touble, and yet old enough to avoid trouble. I dunno, we have used this site for a lot of good in the past, and it would be nice to know we helped figure out what happened here.So if you have a few minutes, just spread the word, especially if you know ...

Some of these actually look pretty damn tasty... For many people, the word eating challenge evokes the iconic scene in the movie "The Great Outdoors,"when John Candy tackles "The Old 96er" to the chagrin of his digestive tract. More recently, the Travel Channel's "Man vs. Food" show has popularized eating challenges, which have increasingly become a strategy for restaurants across the country to ... View More

I suspect that many of you get alerts from the numerous Groupon ripoff sites. You likely signed up because your favorite restaurant had a good deal, and now whenever you check for more deals it's always a massage parlor or a restaurant in Cleveland. It is more annoying than money-saving.So this City Dining Cards company comes along and does something that I wish I had thought of... You pay $20, ... View More
