RR makes many other far superior beers.  Pliny the Younger - vastly superior to the Elder, and only available at the brewery is my favorite RR brew.  If you sign up for Craftshack's newsletter, you'll get an email notifying of its (the Elder's) presence.  It sells out quickly, but they usually post it a few times per month.  Rumor has it that Tavour.com is working on getting it.  They're pretty good for getting smaller crafts from the Pacific NorthWest.

Zombie dust is amazing.  3Floyds makes great stuff.  Cigar city Jai Alai, Sabertooth Tiger by Rhinegheist....so many beers, so little time...

Pliny is available on craftshack.com...It's worth the hype.  Right there with Heady topper, Sip of Sunshine, and my favorite: Fuzzy Baby Ducks.

B deck box seats are a value.  They're under the lip, but not behind a pillar.  The individual seats, with backs, insure you've a clean place to sit that hasn't been walked on, nor will you be pushed aside by someone requiring an airline seatbelt extender...or two...

Bodhi is a great DIPA.  Given what you mentioned beerwize, check out Zaftig.  Ohio finally got rid of a pesky ABV law regarding beer, so the boozy Stouts and Quads are up and coming, Zaftig atop the list.  Prior to the limit, most of their beers were "12%" - with exceptionally sarcastic quotes.

You'll also appreciate the location of their taproom, a stones throw from the Budweiser plant; sort of a big F-U to macrobrewing.  I'd highly recommend an Uber if you go.  There's decent pizza near by, Pie's n Pints - I'd recommend the off menu Italian Pie, and a side of their smoked wings.

NH -

Craft Beer is ubiquitous here in the bus.  There is a very nice place in Dublin called the Pint room (not to be confused with the pint house in the short north) with an excellent tap list for even the snobbiest of the craft crowd.  If you have a proclivity for IPA's, Columbus Brewing company has both it's Bodhi, and it's Creeper in bars now.  They stack up very well to even Heady Topper.  The PR has excellent artisan burgers, I'd recommend the Hangover, or the PBBJ (peanut butter, bacon, and jelly) burger.

Thurmans in German Villiage is another great burger.  Small place, and it's a wait to get it, but worth it.  HIt up Schmidts in German villiage as well - German Sausage\brat buffet, and to die for cream puffs.  Jeni's is a go to ice cream parlor, there are multiple locations. Tai Tiki (short north) has awesome Polynesian, sushi, and unique mixed drinks. Bodega (short north) has an amazing craft beer selection if you don't mind the Hipster crowd.  Cafe Da Vinci (Upper Arlington) will give you some very nice home made Southern Italian, with a side of home made Gelato. Meister's or Adriatico's for deep dish pizza, Brenz for traditional. 

The brewers row is a good time - Seventh son and Wolf's ridge in particular have great tap rooms.  Smokehouse brewing company has arguably the best BBQ in town, and they carry Barley's brew if you wish to kill two birds with one pint.

No shortage of good stuff, welcome back, and Go Bucks!

Hard to say, so many great catches.  Even this obscure one by Chris Vance.  Upvotes for catching anything from Bellasari.

If you're looking to make millions, you have better odds at the casino.  The models themselves split profits, and there are only so many times you can divide up a penny before it's insignificant profit.  The people at the top may make some money, but largely these are set up for the manufacturers of the product to make profit.  Usually, but not always, the products represented aren't good enough to compete with the mainstream; and\or the products themselves aren't as subject to as many regulations due to not being sold thru a traditional franchise.  The latter being a loophole to get a product on the market; in some instances.  Also, the products themselves usually cannot compete in traditional marketing approaches.

That being said, there are some solid products being sold.  Beachbody workouts, Advocare, Youngliving, etc.  Residual income can be made, but it's a lot of work for any real profit.  Testimonies of successful folks in an MLM equate to (on average) 5-10 grand of extra income a year, for 20+ hours of work a week.  Of those, the successful have overcome the biggest hurdle of MLM's: selling product in an artificial market.  Most sales are to new recruits, not to outside consumers.  This lends itself to a conclusion when evaluating any MLM:  If they stress recruitment over product sales, it should be apparent they no longer care if it's product is in demand as they are making a profit from recruiting, not their product.  These are the MLM's to avoid.

Specifically for this year, I think we'd most be helped by Shawn Springs.  With Springs and Gareon Conley locking down the outside, Our D-Line would have but one job: kill the QB.  Our Linebackers, while young, can clean up any remnants of a running attack, or jet sweeps.  As for concerns on the offense, I'll take the odds on JT "The great distributor" Barrett finding the open skill player this year.  It's his team, it's his time, and he doesn't have anyone's shadow on him.  He's going to play angry.

If this question was posed for last year, I'd say O Pace.  I can't imagine how many more yards Zeke would've had behind Pace's stack of pancakes.

The BodyGuard - wretched movie, wretched blind date.  She wore mickey mouse boxer shorts, and a mickey mouse tank top.  5 minutes into the movie, she grabbed my hand and refused to let go.  She sang the lyrics to "I will always love you" when they played it during the movie...

Buy these for your grill:  http://www.grillgrate.com/

A) In a foil packet, assemble a mixture of white and red onions, some sort of pale ale, butter, and mustard.  Let that packet on the grill for 20 minutes, foil packet completely closed.

B) Once the surface temperature of the grillgrates are up to 400 degrees, throw on your brats (I'd recommend Queen city hot and spicy, Schmidts Bahama Mama's, or anything from the Bucyrus Ohio Area) and grill until the internal temp is 135 degrees.  The grates give you the perfect infrared cook, with perfect grill marks, and no bonfire brat effect.

Add A to B, and wash down with at least two beers.

That is unfortunate.  You've likely tried Liquid Aminos as a replacement, but if not, it's worth a mention.  Another couple of places to get good seasonings are: pepperpalace.com and flavorgod.com 

Amazingribs.com has a ton of not just grilled seafood recipes, but knowledge of everything grilled or smoked, how to, and on what equipment.

Another similar spin for Grilling Salmon:  lightly dust with Garlic powder, light coating of soy sauce, spray some olive oil, grill 4 minutes a side

Halibut: Grill similarly to the salmon, with a mixture of dill, pepper, himalayan salt, onion powder, melted butter, and lemon juice basted on top.

Fresh fish will always taste better, but the above seasonings help greatly when grilling frozen fish from Costco, Kroger, etc.  Grilled Asparagus is a good compliment.  If you're a potato guy, cube some red potatoes and put them in a foil packet with diced sweet onion and a half stick of butter and garlic pepper for 25 minutes on the grill...

If you like shrimp, it's great in a wok with combinations of red pepper, green pepper, mushrooms, soy sauce...over rice or even as a steak topper.

+1 for the tip here.  Unfortunately, Gap insurance is most typically issued by the car manufacturer, or the bank issuing the loan for the vehicle.  If there is already a loan on the vehicle, check with the loan issuer and see if there is gap insurance built into the loan.
