Today’s Byte of kind of a hodge podge of things I’ve been meaning to mention. Most are kind of Minnesota-specific so I apologize to folks outside the Twin Cities.
First – my favorite online newspaper (Twin Cities Daily Planet) is now offering daily discounts – kind of like Groupon: http://shop.tcdailyplanet.net/ The special today is for Surdyk’s, a great wine and cheese shop. Earlier this week they featured a Minneapolis sushi restaurant. (One difference between TCDP and Groupon is that you have more than a day to buy.)
Second – When I went home last month I went with a very broken computer and a lot of tears. Luckily I got a heads up on a great computer repair place: General Nanosystems http://www.nanosys1.com/. They could not have been nicer or cheaper and they got my computer working again.
Finally just in case you’re ever thinking of visiting Dublin, I think this is the best guide of free events in Dublin: http://www.dublineventguide.com I know it won’t be useful to most of you this week – but someday you may be glad to know about it.
