The bubbling calmed down a bit the next day, but was still very evident. I went ahead and bottled. Now here we are, 2 weeks later and the the beer is ready to drink. No bottle bombs and no carb issues. So, going forward I'm going to say what many others on HBT have already said: bubbles or no bubbles, if your OG is on target, you are probably good to go ahead and bottle.
Also, for my other beer-in-progress, I end up leaving the wort in the kettle overnight and finishing the next day. So far so good. That batch is in bottles too and should be ready drink this weekend.
