So, I'm glad we're back in OT season, because MGoBlog is probably the only community I can think of that I'd trust for beer advice.
The big family Christmas dinner is tomorrow, and we're haded to Mancy's Italian in Toledo, OH. We haven't been there in a few years since a bad experience (everything was wrong, and the manager basically said "sucks to be you") a few years ago, but Grandma wanted to do it there again, so back we go. Anyhow, since I haven't been there in a while, I thought I'd take a look at the menu ahead of time.
They're now offering Stone's Black IPA - Sublimely Self Righteous Ale. Between the wife and I, dinner itself will be close to $100, so I hate to blow money on a beer I don't enjoy, but this one looked interesting. I normally do not care for very dark beers unless they're quite smooth like Guiness, Leinie's Creamy Dark or something similar. A Heavily malted Stout or Porter isn't my cup of tea (mug of beer?). I go in more for hoppy IPA's, Red Ales, etc. This is described as an IPA, though, and some of the reviews say the hops are quite pronounced. I can't imagine you'd want a beer too hoppy with a heavy malt note.
Has anyone had this, and can they dscribe it from the point of view of someone who's not big on heavy malts? Should I try something new, or save my drink budget for an after dinner single malt? (Oban would hit the spot, methinks).
Calling all computer design specialists!
I need some help and I thought that this might be useful to some other MGoMembers as well. I want to create a special avatar/logo/picture for use on this site and others as well (Twitter, etc.) but just don't have the technical know-how. I have a simple design that will take someone learned in all things design about 2 seconds to finish and am wondering if there is anyone that would be willing to help me (and others). If you're in the business then this might even be a good marketing opportunity for you (?) as I'm sure anyone that uses your services will pay you proper homage. Some of us might even be willing to pay for your services . . .
Leave a comment below if you have the time and interest in helping me (and others) and I'll find a way to get in touch. Thanks in advance!
MODS: Please feel free to delete this as soon as I get a few responses. I don't want this to clutter the Board but I thought it might benefit some others as well.
Happy holidays, everybody.

I know there's a fair share of LOTR/Hobbit fans on the board. I'm sure a lot of you went and saw the movie last night or are going to see it tonight.
I saw it last night at midnight and it was great. Thoroughly entertaining throughout the entire movie, although it doesn't feel nearly as serious as Lord of the Rings (which is probably their intention). The action was non-stop and Smaug is definitely the best CGI Dragon we will see for a while (unless Thrones really steps up their game).
Compared to the first one, it was much faster paced, even though it was longer. It never felt liek there was a lull in the action or there was just enough to give proper back story. I definitely think it is better than the first one, which I also really enjoyed. However, I'm a fan of anything that transports me back to a world that I love so I'm not exactly the harshest critic of these kinds of movies.
How many of have seen it? Thoughts? Still mad I have to wait another year for the end.

With the return of voting will there be an update to the app to allow for voting or will it be limited to the website? I have been primarily using the app since finally ditching my BB getting an android last year, but I like the voting feature and would probably come to the website more often because of it. Thoughts?
