    Jealous. This is something I wish were more readily available around here. I often see Bento as a dine-in option for lunch, but I've never seen one that advertised them for pick-up or to-go. If the joint across the street from me offered this I would eat it several times a week.

    95% of neighborhood restaurants offer delivery while 99% at least offer pickup.


    Seamless is awesome.

    I am in your state. -34º last night. Fucking ridiculous. This is some Antarctica bullshit. I can't wait to get back home to sane temperatures.

    Why? They suck. Slippery in the rain and useless on snow. Oak bark soles get a bit of a nap on them like suede when you wear them. Not to mention that they look weird when walking behind somebody in dress shoes and seeing a rubber sole.

    Dainite soles are definitely better than normal leather soles in my experience.

    My chukkas have dainite soles, and I wear them every time the weather is bad because they get much better traction. Sure, they aren't commando soles, but I'm not sliding down the sidewalk, either.
