Flashback Monday: Reston, in All Its 8-Bit Glory


Since April Fool's Day fell on a weekend, we didn't subject our readers to one of hilarious "pranks" this year. Fortunately, our BFFs at the Googles helped fill the void, creating an old school version of Google Maps. Confidential Restonian Operative "Joel" sent us this image of what searching for the Macaroni Grill and other midscale dining options might have looked like back in the glory days of the late 1980s, if such dining options were there at the time (they weren't) and Google Maps was available on the NES (it wasn't).
