“TOPGOLF” – A waste of time and money

 

Last year my wife gifted my son and I gift cards to the new-to-Kansas City attraction known as TOPGOLF..  TOPGOLF is basically an elevated driving range with various targets which you can hit to score points while competing against your friends.  Sounds fun, I know, but the constant hassles are not worth the energy and time spent.

Depending on where you live, the hourly rates may differ from the ones in KC.  Here the cost is $25 an hour if you go before noon, $35 an hour between noon and five o’clock and $45 an hour after five.  We got there at 11:30 a.m. and were sent to one of the elevated tees.  We were going to play for two hours (thinking since we were there before noon that the cost would be $50.00) but learned that, even if you’re there before noon, once the clock strikes “12” the price goes up.  Not wanting to pay $60 we elected for play for 90 mins at a cost of $42.50.

My son “signed in” to the game and his name appeared on the screen.  We tried to “add a player” but were unable to.  I finally signaled one of the employees and he came over.  We explained the situation and he said that I’d have to pay $5.00 to add my name.  I told him we had already paid for the time and he told me that there is also a $5.00 charge to come in.  It reminded me of the old casinos here in Kansas City -when they first opened you had to pay a $15.00 “docking fee” to go inside.  That’s right…you had to give them money for them to allow you to spend your money!  I agreed to pay the five bucks and we began hitting balls.

At TOPGOLF, if you want a ball you have to wave your club over a sensor, which then has a machine spit a ball out.  Sadly for us, you had to wave your club over the sensor repeatedly…sometimes five or six times…before a ball came out.  The constant wait for a ball obviously ate into our time.  Also, we would alternate our shots but sometimes, even though I was noted as the player up, after I hit the ball it would suddenly change to my son and award him the points.  At 12:15 everything stopped and a message on the screen told us we had 15-minutes left to play.  As we had signed up for 90-minutes we were surprised to see this.  After a few minutes I tracked down the same employee.  Again he came over and pushed some buttons.  “You only paid for an hour,” he told us.  “No,” I said, “we requested 90 minutes.  The cost was $42.50.”  Again, he had to push some buttons.  The whole exchange probably took another five minutes off of our playing time.  I mentioned that and he shrugged.  It was obvious he could care less.  I jokingly said to my son, “well, this isn’t going to look good in my write up.”  As if I had flicked a switch, he immediately showed some interest in us, asking if there was anything he could do for us.  I told him “no.”  A few minutes the manager approached us and asked the same thing.  I explained to her all of the problems we had had and how we had probably lost 15-minutes of our time to glitches.   Obviously she felt that, despite hearing about all of the problems we had had, none of them qualified for the “something I can do” request to be followed up with actually doing something.  No “I’m sorry, let me extend your time” or “I’m sorry, let me get you a pass to come back another time.  Like the previous employee, she just shrugged.  She walked away, we finished up and left.

Maybe when everything is working properly TOPGOLF is a fun time.  But if I’m going to drop $45, I’m going to play 18 holes.

.
Matt Littlejohn, SVP Marketing & Communications for Oceana added “Sharks are critical for our seas and marine ecosystems but many species are in trouble and need help. We are grateful for Knockaround’s support of Oceana and our campaigns to help protect sharks and oceans around the world.”

Product Review “Shady Rays X Series – Blackout Polarized Sunglasses”

I am a true believer in ad placement. I used to work ad placement for my previous company and it is a very important part of a businesses’ success. I recently came across a ad on Facebook for Shady Rays sunglasses. I clicked on the ad to take a look and was very impressed with the product. I reached out to request product to review and feature on the site and let me tell you I am very glad that I did! I am always (and I know I am not alone here) on the hunt for new sunglasses that look good but don’t cost me a mortgage payment. I think I have found them!!!

The Shady Rays X Series – Blackout Polarized Sunglasses are easily one of the most comfortable sunglasses that I have ever worn. They have a real nice sporting looking frame with strong grip made to withstand high speed activity like running, hiking and climbing, water-sports, and more. I am not doing much of that BUT I do have a near 6 year old and I need to be quick when playing outside! These shades are slick looking and get great wrap around coverage so I am not seeing the glasses and then above and below outside the glasses. They fit your face just right and allow you to see without squinting from any angle.

I should also point out that my wife gets not bad but terrible migraines. She got one while we were driving and during this time she needs to block out all sunlight, even closing her eyes don’t help. She threw on these shades while we were driving and she couldn’t get over the relief that she was receiving from the usual pain and discomfort she gets during a typical migraine. She then preceded to wear them and ride out the rest of the migraine and it easily made it much more manageable. This might not be for everyone but I feel like it is worth noting for sure!

These shades comes with HD Polarized black lenses including 100% UV protection, are shatter-resistant and also salt water proof! The last one will be very useful in the pool and ocean! There is also a really kick ass Lifetime Craftsmanship Warranty & Free Replacements if Lost or Broken – just pay S+H fee for lost/broken replacements. I mean that is solid. I mean the pricing alone for these are only $45 dollars and they are worth every penny! The X Series are a big hit for sure and I see myself using Shady Rays my new go to for my sunglasses needs!!

The Americas Cake Fair Returns to Orlando on October 13-15, 2017! Tickets on Sale Now!

Fred Hajjar talks about taking over the holidays with his website, UglyChristmasSweater.com

The holiday season is upon us in full swing and we took some time to chat with owner of UglyChristmasSweater.com to discuss the huge phenomenon that is taking over people’s wardrobes during this time of the year! Everyone has or wants an Ugly Sweater. They are silly fun and a great way to kick back and relax during those lame holiday get togethers. Fred Hajjar is the CEO of the site and has taken over the holidays with this hot craze. We had a chance to chat with Fred about his work and celebrating the holiday season.

Mike Gencarelli: When did you get started with UglyChristmasSweater.com?
Fred Hajjar: The domain was purchased in 2011. The site went live in 2012. I have another clothing website, www.tvstoreonline.com, and thought this would be a great way to expand when I noticed demand for sweaters on eBay and the salvation Army in 2011. I also noticed more and more holiday parties happening every year and also saw statistics showing an increase in searches for ugly Christmas sweaters. From there, www.UglyChristmasSweater.com was born.

MG: Why do you feel that there is such a demand for this product?
FH: Popularity for Ugly Christmas Sweaters has been increasing year to year due to more families, businesses and events around Ugly Christmas Sweaters, thus the overall website traffic has also increased.

MG: Tell us about how you choose your designs?
FH: We do a lot of research on what does well across the web. We also have search term statistics along with data that shows trending designs.We feel the term “ugly” for sweaters has come to encompass not just old style sweaters, such as those at the Salvation Army for example, but also newly designed sweaters that can have a classic or outgoing feel. Everyone has a different opinion, but we feel it represents a sweater that makes you stand out and portrays your true holiday spirit.

MG: I read you even have ones with LED Lights?
FH: Yes, we do! People love creative designs and for some, the more extreme, the better!

MG: Give us some background on the new custom design your own sweater generator on your site?
FH: We decided we needed something creative this year and the customizer was a hit! With sweaters being more mainstream this year, what better way to get something unique!

Product Review “Zen MONQ Aromatherapy Inhaler”

Who says ads that you read on Facebook aren’t effective?! I came across the company MONQ from one of those very ads. What is MONQ? Well it is an aromatherapy inhaler…right away you are thinking…an e-cigarette? No, it’s not! It has 0 tobacco, 0 nicotine and 0 additives. So simply it is just a personal portable devices that is used to enhance your mood with blended and heated aromatherapy. 100% Organic and Natural.

How does this differ from your typical topical oils or household diffusers is that MONQ directly inserts aromatherapy into your olfactory system. So there is no only no harm to your body say instead of vaping or smoking but this product actually helps you find purity, sharpness, and coherence through their mentally relaxing blends which are made from raw plants that have been used throughout throughout history for meditative practices.

The first blend that I was given to try is “Zen MONQ” is said to actually lowers stress levels! Now who doesn’t need a little of that?! Well let me tell you it does actually do what it says it does. I was very impressed with this product. The MONQ Therapeutic Air device are single use and approximately 150 breaths with most lasting between 1-2 weeks. There is no buttons. No charging. No stress. Just breathe in and relax!

The Zen MONQ is made up of the following scents Frankincense / Orange and Ylang-ylang. It smells fantastic and gives off a really nice vapor quantity as well when exhaled. So I like to call this the even healthier way to “smoke”, especially if you are trying to break that habit or fill the need to do so. I found myself very relaxed when testing this product and I am very excited to be trying the other blends as well, so stay tuned to find out more!

Just a closing note, just so that there is no confusion you do not need to be a smoker/ex-smoker or anything to enjoy this product at all. If anyone is looking to inspire some peace and calm feelings and looking for natural clarity that I highly recommend checking out this product ASAP! Go to https://monq.com/ and tell them Media Mikes sent you!

Product Review “Reebok Shaq Attaq IV”

 

Growing up being an Orlando Magic fan, you gotta give it to Shaquille O’Neal man. The guy is long retired from the game of basketball and yet his presence is no less important in the business. Like Air Jordan’s the Shaq Attaq is back and still just as cool. The shows are just slick looking. No BS either. They are blank and simple black and white and they own it. It is a bold shoe for a bold person.

I love the high-top look and I am happy that it has never gone away. These sneakers are Insta Pump-equipped with leather and mesh upper for comfort, support, and breathability. The Pump P107 collar technology is a nice way to add custom fit for the shoe and I really enjoy this feature. These also have a hexalite cushioning system for supreme underfoot comfort.

I am usually not huge on signature sneakers but Reebok really delivers these with a good price of around $140 bucks, which ain’t too bad. They also sport the retro Shaq’s signature “dunking” logo on the tongue and the Reebok logo on the ankle as well. These are shoes that will be you some attention I guarantee it. I have never or will never be a basketball player but these shoes are hot and I can’t wait to show them off.

Product Review “Ray-Ban New Wayfarer”

I don’t know what it is but myself (and my entire family) have always been a fan of Ray-Ban sunglasses. I think it was the durable and reliable. The latest Ray-Ban model, New Wayfarer (RB2132 52), really interested me. They are very simple and yet so elegant and sleek. When you look at they they aren’t fancy at all yet, I could see some heads turn when you are wearing them.

There are two different color options available Black/Green and Brown/Green. I would, no question, prefer the Black/Green. I have never been a big fan of Brown sunglasses. The frame material is plastic and the lens are glass, so they hold up well to wear and tear. I give my sunglasses quite the challenge, so I trust that these will not let down.

The new model is a slightly smaller interpretation-size 52mm- take on the well known style. The Ray-Ban  logo is displayed prominently for those that care about branding.  One of the real sellers for this updated model is that they come with polarized lenses, which allow for ultimate clarity and enhanced vision. I rely on my sunglasses a lot and these are worth every penny.

Product Review “Nike Air Max 2015”

 

The last time that I owned a pair of Nike Air Max sneakers, it was probably back in 2013. They were good shoes that latest me a very long time. Everyone knows the Nike brand. They are a trusted brand and very recognizable. The latest 2015 honestly to me aren’t a drastic update from what I remember in my last pair. I can say for sure that they have some really crazy color options this year.

I settled for typical black with the white swoosh but I was also quite found of the pair that blends “Black/Bright Crimson/Blue Lagoon/White”, which is quite the fashion statement for sure but look cool. Honestly for the price, I wouldn’t really think that these are the best shows on the market for running. I mean nearly $200 dollars seems a bit much for me.

Some of the specs for these sneakers are that they are come equipped with engineered mesh upper for light weight and breathability. One of the other features is the “Free-laying Dynamic Flywire”, which provides a very natural-motion feeling for the foot. I don’t have the best heel and these definitely assist in giving a bit of ease on both of that with the padded heel counters.

The rubber outsole with the BRS 1000 carbon rubber pods in the heel and forefoot work well for traction but honestly feel a little thin. I am wondering how long these are going to last. I walk over five miles a day and I will be revisiting these over time to see how they hold up. So for money, I will leave these up to your preference. I feel like if you have purchased Air Max before you should be happy with them.

Product Feature “New Balance Glow 1400 Sneakers”

When it comes to sneakers, I am a New Balance guy. Always have been. They have always delivered the best comfort and quality sneakers for me. I tried getting an expensive pair of Nike sneakers last year that were rated one of the best in 2013 and I felt that they just were made so poorly and were falling apart after one a few weeks of use.  A few months ago we did a feature on the New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Sneakers. I loved these sneakers. They were probably the best pair that I have ever owned…well that changed when I tried out the latest New Balance Glow 1400 Sneakers. If you are looking for a great running sneaker, these are the way to go! They would also make especially great gifts, hint hint, this holiday season!

These are sneakers are literally the brightest and lightest that I have ever seen. They literally only weight just over 7 oz and feel like you are walking on air. These are also Limited Edition Glow in the Dark Sneakers. Honestly, when I was told about these I thought to myself you had me sold at “Glow in the Dark Sneakers!” These actually have a nice glow to them. They are great for training and racing whether it is day or night. What I also love about them is that the “glow” aspect isn’t cheesy or a gimmick. It is subtle and yet at the same time very effective. It gives off a nice glow but it is also not obtrusive or annoying.  If you are running down a dark street, these are sure to let off some solid light.

There are two colors themes available Blue with Yellow and Grey with Yellow. I really like the look of the Blue with Yellow. It really looks sharp and quite slick. Right from the moment I put these on, it just felt perfect. Besides them being ultra-light, they also have a very secure fit and are made with innovative mesh/no-sew overlay upper and durable midsole cushioning. Comfort is definitely an absolute given with these sneakers. I will also be purchasing a second pair of these for sure since I want to make sure I have a backup on hand. My wife, who likes to try on my sneakers, made it clear that she would love a pair of these as well. So New Balance if you are reading, you got these in Women’s as well?
