    The giant videos are entertaining but a little too mesmerizing. The outdoor area is pleasant and it is fun to look up whole standing out there.

    Dear XES, your AC is way too cold. I'm freezing inside when it's warm and beautiful outside. I do like your two for ones tho. Please just go a little easier on the AC. All I'm asking is 72 or 74.
