Re: Restaurant

I tried Smashburger for the first time last weekend. The burger was okay, but the fries were below average. Had a little sticker shock when the bill came to almost $30 for 2 kids meals, a combo meal for me, and a single burger for my wife. Way too expensive for mediocre food. Probably won't go back...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

The sleep tracker does not allow you to manually start and stop, but you can go in after the fact and edit time. If you go to the daily progress screen and tapping the single bar button does the Start Sleep option appear? I have the previous Vivoactive model and that's how i manually start sleep tr...

Re: Tee to Green!

For those of you who have played golf longer than me (probably a lot of you), how often do you get a new driver? I ask because one of my golfing buddies just got his 3rd different driver in 5 years. I've had 2 since like 2008, and I really only changed because I could trade in one of mine and end u...

Not sure whether to but this in the Got Beer thread or here, but I'm going to be in Billings next week for work. Has any one done the Walking Brewery Tour in Billings? How was it?

Re: Consumer Research

Possibly a bit unusual, but has anyone here had hernia surgery, and where did you have it done? I had double hernia surgery back in December done at St. Francis Hospital in Shakopee. It can be done laparoscopic, but I also had my appendix taken out in Oct, so the incisions would need to near those ...

Re: Consumer Research

I'm looking into an upgrade to my fitness tracker (the original Fitbit). I need one with an actual secure watch band like clasp rather than the nubbins that always detach on the Fitbit. I'm also looking for one with GPS and HR monitor, I would like the activity/sleep tracker too - and waterproof fo...

Re: Video Games

My sons want to get the XBOX One. I'm seeing there are a couple of bundle options at Target (and Best Buy) for the 1TB console - Tom Clancy's Division and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six. Which one would people recommend?

Re: Consumer Research

So I killed my Fitbit by over charging it and I am two months past my warranty. Any recommendations on a different brand or is Fitbit the best? I would like one that has the heart rate monitor. What functions/features (besides a heart rate monitor) do you want/need? I really like my Garmin Vivoacti...

Re: Consumer Research

I'm turning 42 this year, and I'm starting to hold books, papers, Kindle's, scorecards, etc further & further away so at some point I'll have to get some cheater glasses for reading. But I'm OK with that because my wife, who hasn't had the surgery, is turning 40 this year and she's having the s...
