At lunch today Tim and I hit La Sala’s in Columbus Park. It’s ancient. It’s delicious. It’s old school. Enough said.

I’m on a bit of a motorcycle kick today. It probably stems from the fact that I went to “Art of the Chopper” at Union Station in Kansas City today. While I didn’t hold out high hopes for the show, I have to admit I was blown away by the attention to detail and artistry with the bikes in the show. This bike was one of my favorites. As you can see, it’s not a chopper. A number of the bikes in the show aren’t. All of them are worth a look though.

Paypal and Pizza Express, Let You Pay Via Your iPhone.

I have to admit I am a little reluctant to use my phone as a digital wallet. (To many data security seminars from the days I worked for a bank).This however shows a slightly different approach that actually has the potential to gain some traction.

UK restaurant chain Pizza Express have partnered with Paypal to allow meals to be paid for using a specific Pizza Express iPhone app.

The Pizza Express app includes a range of functionality like reserving a table, using coupons, etc., but one of the more interesting elements of the application is the direct integration of Paypal which allows you to pay for your meal directly through the Pizza Express application.  The video below explains how the Pizza Express Paypal application works:

The last few days have been insanely busy at night when I usually make these posts, so I haven’t uploaded any of them for the last three days. It doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on the Instigram project, it just means I haven’t had time to post. So here is a three for one deal on Sunday morning.

Today around 3:00 in the afternoon I was rear-ended by a guy in a truck, pulling another truck with an illegal tow-bar. By the time it was over (a few seconds) 6 vehichles were involved with my MINI getting the most of it. Well thats not true, the guy that hit us, his trucks were seriously messed up. Out of those of us on the recieving end, my car took the most of it. No one was seriously hurt thank god. What a way to spend a Saturday.
