The comment after this one clarifies that and asks them to remove the part about with regards to tax-deductibility.
That's priceless. It felt like the tax-deductible part was sketchy from the beginning.

Wow, they sure don't like Greater Longfellow.
It sounds like they're having trouble finding a good property for all their core equipment in that neighborhood.

Honestly I think I'd be more excited if they had a webcam, I sort of forget about it until I drive by.

Does the alcohol content of the beer have any serious disinfecting properties or no?
No, there's not enough alcohol. It's actually the opposite, the yeast can speed up line gunk.

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

Yep Centurylink showed up trying to get me on their gigabit fiber/prism TV thing a couple of weeks after my neighborhood was put on the map. It's not very price-competitive, but they do offer a TV package which USI doesn't have (yet).

Re: AC Marriott Hotel (401 Hennepin Ave / Andrews Hotel site)

What's so strange is that they continue making improvements on the inside. The "EDM" dance floor has a ton of new lights and a new bar, the video bar is relatively new, and the "back room" through the men's bathroom is now open to all and also has a new bar and some touch-ups.

I've been to the Target Center three times now since I moved up here and the security people always look and act like it's the first crowd they've ever seen.

Mine was turned on Friday and I cancelled the Internet part of my Comcast package the same day. Just waiting on their Fiber TV product to get rid of Comcast completely.

What makes it "fast"? Is it the rubber fill, or the type of fiber used for grass? I'm assuming "fast" means you can run faster on it or something?
