Oh hi.

Closed for obvious reason. Will re-open the thread when the clean up is over. Everybody should take a break.

On that note, I'm off to bed.

Had this post typed out right before the thread got closed (ain't that a *****?):

Tennessee has a ton of Jersey Mike's. Best sub shop I have ever been to. Only one avaiable in Minnesota- St. Paul, IIRC.

They cut the meat and cheese right in front of you. Roast beef always comes out that perfect shade of red.

Anyhow, I would put their cherry relish in my coffee if they could sell it individually.

Well that was fun.

Just got my internet turned back on, come to HF, and ugh.

Really enjoying St Paul so far. Was able to walk right down the street to get food, groceries, beer, etc. Of course, first time we get groceries I run into my ex / my kid's mom. So I guess that's going to happen constantly. But we also saw one of his friends from school and that's really why we're here.

Went couch shopping, not sure if we can afford one, but it sure would be nice. I'm sitting on a box now.

Also, apparently I lost my TV stand so I'll have to try and mount my LCD to the wall through the plaster and wood slats. Not too excited about that due to my extremely protective landlord.

They have locations in St. Anthony Village, Coon Rapids, and Mankato.

There's a Five Guy's Burgers (very good) next to the one in Mankato but I've never gone in to Jersey Mike's. I might have to make a visit soon.

Anyone big coffee drinkers?

I just bought a Burr Grinder and the difference it had on my French Press coffee is crazy, so much better.

I have a Five Guys within walking distance from my apartment. Have had to resist the urge for a couple months. Only had it once when I had a hangover where I couldn't allow myself to open my eyes. Still delicious.

Oh man, Five Guy's.... LOVE them. I just hate my new job, because I'm literally a 5 minute drive away, but I only get 30 for lunch.

I made an obnoxious burger myself not too long ago. Little over a 1/4 lb, fried egg, blue cheese and swiss. It was amazing. I'm upset that I waited as long into life before trying a fried egg on a burger. It sounded so odd, but man...

Forgot to add, if there's an opportunity to go to Jersey Mike's and you haven't.. Do so. Better than anything I have had that is ready is ten minutes or less.

I'll definitely try that tomorrow when I fry up burgers.

I had Five Guys last week and it was really underwhelming. Hmm.

I like coffee but I've been hooked on Diet Dew for 15 years. The gal brought her espresso and coffee machines and I have my french press....considering trying one of those Moka pots. I had a latte this morning and it was pretty dang good. I do like espressos and americanos but haven't had them in forever, so getting something closer to that than drip coffee would be appealing for me. And I like a little milk in there and could get into steamed milk.

I love my Moka pot, but I don't get a consistent brew with it. One day its amazing, the next its pretty gross. There's a lot of timing and heating that isn't the most precise when using one.

I've never used one really. All I know is that if the machine is Pump driven and delivers 15 bar of pressure it should be serviceable. Although many of the cheaper machines have reliability issues.

I've heard mainly good things about the mypressi twist, which uses NO2 cartidges to pull a shot of espresso., but is ~$150.

Also the Aeropress can deliver a stronger cup of coffee (not quite real espresso but close), and is cheap (~$30) and I love it.

Lastly, if you do want to try a Moka pot, get a Stainless steel one if possible. Some say the aluminum is better, but I have one and it took forever for my coffee to not taste like metal. Evidently the Steel ones don't have this issue of 'seasoning' nearly as bad.

A coworker uses an aeropress. Looks like a higher pressure french press? Might be worth a shot at the price.

Pretty much. It makes it stronger than a french press, so it goes great with some steamed (or not) milk in it.

Takes more coffee per cup compared to a french press though.

It's definitely worth checking out.

I swear 90% of conversations with my friends involve movie quotes...including a high number from Anchorman.

Same here... in fact when a quote from a movie none of us have quoted in some time comes up, sometimes one of us will put up our arms like it was scoring a touchdown!
