What and Who is Behind Hidden Cash? Can You Find Hidden Cash? @Hiddencash
 

What and Who is Behind Hidden Cash? Can You Find Hidden Cash?  @Hiddencash

According to the twitter profile:

An anonymous social experiment for good ☼ Real Cash hidden around SF & beyond. Find the $ – share tweetphoto + tag officialhiddencash@gmail.com

=================

So what is all this about, with the latest hidden cash location was in Burbank at the Empire Center, where hundreds of people convened to hunt for was hundreds if not thousands of dollars hidden in bushes and other locations around the outdoor mall complex.

You can read about the reason that the person behind this is doing what they are doing and other similar movements around that are similar here.  The frenzy that started in San Francisco and has spread, started with a tweet and blog posting on May 22, 2014.

Are businesses concerned with these type of events where people could get hurt or cause property damage in the process. Is it legal for an individual to hide cash and then tweet about it and have hundreds of people decent on a location? Should cities be aware of these type of events, much like a flash mob of sorts.  Maybe a cashmob…

More details will evolve over time on this movement, but there have always been philanthropist who donate money to the needy, like the “skid row santa” who hands out $20,000 every holiday season.

Lowe’s Online Ordering and Store Pickup
 

Updated: I placed an order for three items, about an hour after I received the email that the order was ready I went to the store and the order was ready.

From the past experiences:

I placed an order online. Received the email that the order was ready for pickup 20 minutes later. I show up at the store 6 hours later and the order had still not been retrieved. This is not the first time this has happened. I have ordered online and picked up at least five orders, and all of them except for one I had to wait longer than it would have been for me to go and pick out the merchandise I ordered myself. This time I had to say something. The online ordering with store pickup is broken at this store at least and needs to be fixed. The assistant Manager, Manny tried to help but he was just trying to be nice, after disappearing for 20minutes I saw the employee walking the store with my order and pulling items from my order, that was supposed to have been pulled 6 hours ago! Yes, I saw the employee walking around the store picking my order, this again is not the first time. I told Amanda the other Assistant Manager that this has to stop, if Lowe’s is going to take this seriously this has to be the last time this happens. That if I order one more time online and it is not ready when I arrive, that they have lost me as a customer! For not taking me seriously and not addressing the issues.
Amanda was cordial and listened and offered to credit me for the order of $55. Which was some consolation after waiting for an hour for my order that should have been ready when I got there. They also don’t give you a receipt when you leave the store with the merchandise. So there are a number of operational issues that need to be fixed.
If anyone talks to Amanda or Manny at the Burbank store they are more than familiar with what I experienced today. Nobody should have to deal with this.
I suggested than any of the employees should be able to be assigned a list of 10 items and retrieve them for a customer within 10 minutes or less. I had less than 10 items, and those items if they had not been pulled, I should have been told so at the beginning, not 30 minutes later after waiting thinking that the order was in the back being loaded on a cart. My order was small items, 48362-1144.

Please get this fixed so nobody else has to deal with this ever.

Ace Patel, recently took ownership of Haven in Pasadena and Taco Asylum in Costa Mesa.

More details on the owners split and what lies ahead for the locations.

Lots of rumors out there about the closure of Haven Pasadena, but the piece below explains how this Haven Gastropub in Orange had separated from that location prior to the closure. We want to assure our loyal fans that despite the recent changes, our plans for Haven Gastropub and Provisions Market haven’t changed. We created concepts where we would want to hang out, and that we could be proud of. We pour only the best beer, we create quality food, we mix great cocktails, and we provide a market for some of our favorite things at Provisions.

Pacific Plate Brewing Company – Monrovia’s first and only craft brewery
 

Pacific Plate Brewing Company is Monrovia’s first and only craft brewery. We are now open to the public.

Pacific Plate Brewing Company will create a unique canon of historic and Latin-American inspired Ales and Lagers. We utilize a combination of age-old techiques and modern scientific approaches to create a premium artisan product. Ultimately, we will beget a new reign of beer drinking experiences. After all, our motto is Nil Satis Nisi Optimum.

Agave Wheat
Our Agave Wheat beer is light bodied American-style wheat beer brewed with agave syrup which is extracted from the roots of the Agave plant. The light body and neutral yeast character of this beer compliments its delicate hoppiness. This is the perfect refreshing summer brew.

Bavarian Hefeweiss Bier
A German Hefeweizen that is full bodied and deep golden in color. Our Bavarian Hefewiess Bier is brewed in accordance with the Reinhitsgebot (German beer purity law) and contains only malts, hops, yeast and water. It features a strong banana and clove flavor. These flavors are byproducts of a vigorous fermentation using the classic Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. The suspend yeast gives the beer a cloudy appearance and a tart and refreshing quality.

Cardomom Ginger Saison
This Belgian Farmhouse Ale is brewed with 100% Belgian Pilsner Malt and spiced with fresh ground ginger root and Guatemalan Cardamom. It is fermented with a unique Belgian strain of yeast that contributes tartness and notes of black pepper. Saison is traditionally brewed in Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium, in the colder months of the year for drinking in the summer time. It was and still is a source of refreshment and hydration for Wallonian farmers.

Mango IPA
This medium bodied American IPA is brewed with new experimental HBC 342 hops that lend a citrusy and tropical flavor and aroma. After primary fermentation we add a ton of fresh Mango puree. The tropical notes in both the hops and Mango compliment the assertive bitterness and hop character.

Copa De Oro
This Belgian Golden Ale is flavored with fresh orange zest and coriander which impart a nice citrusy character to compliment the spicy and fruity yeast strain. A beautiful golden color this beer truly is a cup of gold.

English Mild Ale
This traditional English draft beer is the original sessions beer. The grist is composed of various crystal and toasted malts. It is fairly dark and malty with minimal hop character. It is low in alcohol and light in body body allowing one to enjoy of night of drinking without the effects of too much alcohol consumption. Made popular in the early to mid 20th century in London and the English Midlands.

Horchata Stout
Pacific Plate’s Horchata Stout is a rare offering. Based on a traditional English Milk Stout, it is generously flavored with pure cocoa, fresh Mexican cinnamon, Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans, and sweetened naturally with milk sugar. The rich milky body and decadent chocolate flavor complimented with the cinnamon and vanilla provide a luxurious drinking experience. Contains Lactose.

No More Bitter and Acidic Coffee – Remington 12-cup iCoffee SteamBrew Coffee Maker

Removable Filter

Automatic Shut-Off

Remington Innovation has spent years and millions of dollars researching the science of coffee brewing, and as a result has perfected the iCoffee brewing system.

The iCoffee technology focuses on how the coffee is delicately finessed inside the brewer. Stirring and tumbling of all of the grounds gives a more even extraction resulting in an impossibly smooth cup of coffee.

The iCoffee patented SteamBrew technology powers six rotational water jets that steam and stir your favorite coffee. The SteamBrew technology ensures that all the coffee is evenly and fully exposed to the perfect brewing conditions allowing more extraction of your favorite coffee. This saves up to 15% on coffee usage, while maintaining strength and exquisite flavor. It also produces a delicious crema on the top of the coffee.

Features and Benefits:
* SteamBrew Technology
* Six Rotational water jets steam and stir your favorite coffee
* Lighted BrewView window
* Premium Goldtone Filter
* 12-cup fully automatic
* 24-hour programmable
* Automatic shut-off with 2 hour keep warm
* 4-12 cup capacity
* Pause and serve feature
* iCoffee technology is protected by patents so you won’t find it in any other coffee brewer
* Medium Coarse to Coarse Ground is recommended for best results

Isolating the Problem:

The Drip Dilemma – Bitter and Acidic Coffee Oils:
*Drip coffee makers have been in use for more than 40 years. Now that the original drip-brewer patents have expired, the industry has reached commodity status. There have been hundreds of drip-brewers on the market. Unfortunately, they all suffer from the same scientific dilemma – uneven extraction.

*Drip brewers rain hot water down unevenly on the grounds. You can see the evidence of this by looking at the crater that can be formed in the grounds after brewing. Unfortunately, this results in the over-extraction of unwanted acidic and bitter coffee oils. This makes perfect coffee extraction impossible.

The Single-Serve Dilemma – Over Extraction:
*Single-serve coffee makers are popular because they are fast, easy to use and convenient. Unfortunately, the pump can quickly force hot water through finely ground coffee at excessive speeds, resulting in over-extraction of unwanted acidic and bitter coffee oils. Single serve is expensive to use and forfeits perfect coffee extraction for speed.

The French Press Dilemma – Inconvenience:
*Coffee drinkers love how their favorite coffee tastes smoother, non-bitter, and non acidic using the French Press brewing process.

*The French Press completely surrounds and suspends coffee grounds with hot water, extracting exquisite coffee flavors with none of the bitter, acidic aftertaste. Unfortunately, the French Press is inconvenient to use, the coffee becomes cold quickly, it is time consuming to brew and clean, and it is limited to only a few cups.

The iCoffee Solution:

SteamBrew Technology
*iCoffee technology forgoes the dated mechanics of shower head drip coffee brewers, pressurized single-serve cups, and French Press by revolutionizing how the coffee is finessed inside the brewer.

*SteamBrew Pre-Steam – Unlock Nutrition and Flavor
First, the coffee is pre-steamed to evenly apply proper moisture and heat. Like steaming vegetables to unlock nutrition and flavor, iCoffee uses the benefits of steam to open up and fully release only the non-bitter, non-acidic, exquisitely smooth coffee flavors.

*SteamBrew Hot Water Rotational Jets – Full Flavor Release
Six patented SteamBrewTM hot water rotational jets further steam, and stir your favorite coffee releasing a symphony of exquisite flavors.

*SteamBrew Brew-Viewing Window – Watch The Rich Crèma Form
iCoffee’s modern design allows the coffee lover to observe the SteamBrew process through the Brew-viewing window, and watch as rich coffee crèma forms.

*SteamBrew Efficiency… Less is More
iCoffee releases more flavor from the same amount of coffee and allows you to use less coffee to achieve the same boldness. iCoffee drinkers
