My co-workers have been raving about @WorthyBurger the past couple of weeks so I decided to check it out.  It’s a very small venue located in the old Freight House in South Royalton, VT.  We walked in and it was packed (good sign)!  They use a lot of local ingredients included local eggs which were delivered by the farmer right in front of us.  He even stayed to have a burger.  I got the TurDucky, (turkey and duck confit burger) with local mushrooms and local cheddar.  It was delicious!  Plus on the specials board they parmesan truffle fries which were again delicious.  I washed it down with a Vienna Lager from Trapp.  Loved their pickles and pickled grapefruit.  Overall it was a great time.  I will definitely be going back.

Water Street Café Review
Guest Post by Tom Deterling 
Whenever I find myself in the Laconia area, I always make it a point to stop by the Water Street Café. Whether it’s an early morning for breakfast or noontime for lunch, I have never been disappointed with the food or service. It is a great clean and welcoming place to stop by for a quick meal or sit for awhile and relax.
The breakfast menu is quite thick with plenty of different offerings. They offer a standard diner menu from eggs and omelettes to pancakes and French toast with plenty of options to make it the way you want. They also offer a wide selection of breakfast sandwiches, burritos and benedicts. The portions are generous and are a great price. Also they have great specials running that definitely break from away tradition, like the pulled pork pancakes with Jack Daniels maple syrup. And finally, they know how to make an egg, something that is getting harder and harder to find in a diner.
They also offer a great selection of lunch and dinner options. I always go with the turkey club for lunch, by far the best club I’ve ever had. No processed turkey, real thick turkey breast and real fresh bacon. Sandwiches, burgers, steak, and seafood is all available on the menu, and even offer beer and wine if so inclined. 
Water Street Café is a great place for a meal anytime of the day. The staff is friendly and attentive, they have plenty of seating, and the food is always top notch. It is a place I recommend to all my friends and family in the area. For the best food at a great price in the lakes region, look no further.

More than 100,000 vines were posted to Twitter this weekend which means the new social app seems to be overcoming the obstacles they faced recently.  Do you vine? What do you think about it? I think 6 seconds is a little short, but I have seen many successful videos in the app.  I did notice an increase in activity, but I also saw an increase in porn.  I think vine is doing better at monitoring this (after the editor’s pick fiasco), but they still have a long way to go to beat their photo competitor Instagram. It will be interesting to see how this app shapes up.  http://on.mash.to/Y7q5KD

We had a blast this weekend playing in the snow with our Boxer, Recchi.  He loves chasing his tennis ball and running through the fresh snow.  Something to entertain us as we shovel out the cars.  What did you do this weekend to get outdoors?
