because the trump thread deserves a pulitzer

Nope, lived entire life in San Diego. Got a job at a very cool game dev studio in Champaign, so I'm taking a chance and doing something different. I had offers in LA and SF and really didn't want to live there at all.You can also drive like 30-40 more minutes and get some of that St Louis shitlord in too.
You from the Champaign area originally? That's where I got my craft beer legs, after a very extended undergrad stay.
Nice! I'll be down there the last weekend of February for some bachelor party shenanigans, but I always enjoyed Crane Alley for their very random nice beer selection (a couple years ago Tilquin was on draft). Triptych is a brewery that is brewing beer down there. There is a Binnys if you want the real Chicago experience, otherwise I did all my shelfie buying at Friar Tucks or Sun Singer (both had Fantome before I was a knower). Downtown Champaign has changed a lot since I graduated, but there are a ton of beer bars for grad students and professors (too expensive/far for undergrads). Black Dog is good barbeque, Maize is probably the best Mexican food in the area.Nope, lived entire life in San Diego.

Busting balls, didn't mean to make light of a bad situation. Welcome to Illinois (and happy holidays)! Champaign tends to be a pretty boring town, but you're in a good jump off spot to Chicago, St. Louis, and Carbondale, which are the three main beer spots near you. Come up to Chicago and rage.nah, I lost a job
Nah it's fine, I was looking for a change anyway. Very hard to save any sort of wealth in CA, so I was looking to move anyway. Was trying to move to Austin since that's a hotbed for my industry, and the prices haven't gone completely insane yet. We're taking the approach of "well if we hate it, we'll just move." Not a big deal, and a fun new experience.Busting balls, didn't mean to make light of a bad situation. Welcome to Illinois (and happy holidays)!

This just made my planned Chicago trips even better. Fuck yeah.Ah, I see I forgot the most important information: there is an Amtrak that runs from Champaign to Chicago, and it's like $28-40 round trip. Adds like a half hour to the trip time, but you can
You have until Monday to rack up points. I had this new gnocchi dish yesterday for the first time that was fantastic. Then Legal-Hero is great.

I used the online form to credit points to my account and the submission just went to#TalkRev
Question about the Rev Rewards account: the site seems new since I was last there (maybe?) so I'm not sure if I have a web profile or not? It doesn't like the number on the back of my card.
Is there some poor soul at Rev who is in charge of helping people like me get their balls out of their own zipper?
Failing that, if anyone here knows what my username is if it's not the card number with spaces or without spaces, that'd probably get me there.
