When I signed up for the Boh Knows Movember pub crawl, I knew that there would be a pub crawl involved. I knew that I’d grow a mustache, or at least attempt to. I wasn’t quite sure whether we’d raise awareness about men’s health issues or not. I also wasn’t quite sure how participating would [...]

After playing host to a truck driving school for a few months, the former Utopia club is now home to Bank Shot Bar & Grill. Make no mistake, it’s a pool hall that happens to contain a bar and a grill. Weekends and tournament nights the place is packed the rafters. You’ll find the parking [...]
Pricing a set of basic staples can tell you a lot about inflation. Typically economists might consider a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, or carton of eggs. I was out shopping for a Super Bowl viewing and decided to do the same with cheap beer. Sorted in the order from more affordable (per [...]
I was out a lot last week.
Monday afternoon I attended a business meeting at Hana to go over some quarterly numbers. That statement alone makes me feel old. I ordered the chicken yaki soba ($9.95) and enjoyed it, but the overall experience at Hana wasn’t too great. The pricing at this Piney Orchard establishment is [...]
I went to Don’t Know Tavern on Friday night. It’s owned by the same people as No Idea Tavern, apparently both named as if to answer the question “so where are/were you?” I don’t know if I’d call it “in celebration,” but it was for ACW’s final fling happy hour before he quits blogging forever. [...]
Been waiting for The Dark Knight since you heard about it? Curious to see Heath Ledger’s final performance? Have a thing for Christian Bale? Maggie Gyllenhaal? Michael Caine? Hmm, or maybe you’re a Marvel DC comics fan?
How about a few rounds beforehand?
Call it a happy hour or pre-gaming if you like, but a few of [...]
No picture today, just a lot that’s been in the back of my mind lately.
I’ve been going to the gym again. It was one of those things I kept putting off (for close to six months) so I feel pretty good about it. I’m only going twice a week, but I feel healthier. I’d been [...]
I saw WALL-E last Friday night and loved it. I can’t remember the last time I saw a movie with a G rating in the theater, let alone enjoyed it this much. Sometimes I see a movie and think I’ll have to pick that up on DVD because I know I’ll want to see it [...]
To make it really short, the Sunday brunch at Little Havana is a blast. Beware however, without a reservation you can expect up to a two hour wait (especially if its a holiday weekend). As far as reservations go, make them early. If the weather is supposed to be nice, ask for an outside table. [...]
I went to a cocktail party at friend’s house on Saturday night. Aside from work-related events, it was my first. The house parties I attend are usually a bastion of comfortable apparel, but it was really neat seeing everyone all dressed up. The gentlemen in suits and ties and the ladies in little (mostly) black [...]
I hosted a malt liquor tasting on Saturday night. About a dozen people turned out to rank five of the cheapest forties that I could find within a mile of my house. The brands tasted included King Cobra, St. Ides, Olde English 800, Colt 45, and Hurricane. I would have included Mickey’s and Steel Reserve [...]
I had a great mixture of happenings and relaxing this weekend.
I finally got to see the lights on 34th Street in Hampden. I’d seen pictures, heard accounts, read blog entries… but they’re better in person. Christmas had already passed, but it still made me feel like a little kid. For the older appreciator in you [...]
After a non-stop jam-packed kick-ass weekend — including, but not limited to a holiday party at Evelyn’s Cafe (which I’d like to get back to to eat sometime), seeing (and liking) Scythian at Mick O’Shea’s, eating at the Papermoon Diner for the first (but not the last) time, going to a subwoofer shootout, DJ/MC/attending a [...]
Since Google Maps allows us to do custom layers, all the smoke free places on the list so have been plotted on a map. I was going to do this via the Google Maps API, but this was so much easier than dealing with the XML plus it allows collaboration.
The Map (which has a hideous [...]
We braved snowy roads and headed to Gina’s Cantina in celebration of Repeal Day last night. That’s not entirely true, but it was Wednesday and a few of us were up for being social.
Gina’s is located at the merging of General’s Highway and Veteran’s Highway, just south of Millersville. Most people who live in the [...]
