    Ever been under the north end of the Aurora Bridge? Check it out and say hi to the 18 ft, 13,000 lb Fremont Troll. (We think he’s crushing that car to show what he thinks about car ownership.) -- Zipcar via Foursquare

    Drink all the beer you can here before the $8 beers at the game. -- Quoc Tang via Foursquare
