aka, the only reason to ever go to Arby’s)?
Hey now! I have to admit my only fast food downfall is Arby’s. Yes the shakes rock, but don’t forget their tasty lil triangular fried potato cakes& curly fries. Mmmmmm me likey.
Oh I should most definitely try to make this event. If I cannot though I have to give major props to Cow town Pizza. I recently discovered them& it is my new addiction. All of you looking for a killer vegetarian pizza (othere than Mama Mimis), look no more. Try their Mediteranean Pie. I add provolone to it but it is good without even. It has FETA for crying out loud- plus roasted garlic, artichokes hearts, tomato!! Delish.
So this is slightly off topic- but it totally reminds me of a childhood experience. In fifth grade I attended a Young Authors Conference and apparently McD’s was a sponsor bc I remember orange drink flowing like crazy. Anyhooo they had a contest to create a new product for them. I came up with a Apple& cinnamon milkshake. Somehow I won the contest& they gave me coupons for free fries. I had to give them away though bc my mom wouldn’t let me eat McD’s. How tragic ;)
Gluttony challege sounds intriguing to me only if it involves pizza btw…
Thanks for this link Walker!! Reading the thread I started to wonder if i had any old photos bc I moved to the SN in 1988. I started thinking about one of the first jobs I had which was at the vintage clothing store Putt’n On The Dog. It was a fun& hip store with a half of a car in the front window (which is shown in one of the photos on that site!). I also got my first blonde makeover at Waldo’s on High circa that same time frame. Great to see pics of the SN that made me fall in love with it. I think I am getting a bit sentimental in my 30’s. That’s OK though…
I just drove by there an hour ago& I am 90% sure that they closed. Not only were all the windows covered with paper, the sign was covered up/ taken down. Bummer- I really like their food.

They’re also doing some demo/construction at Gibby’s / Canyon Cafe in Grandview as well.
I heard that location was going to be a Northstar…??? Yes? I hope so anyway!
I remember back in the day- The Clock (where Elevator is now) did a post bar closing breakfast menu for a year or so. That was when I was hanging out at either the Garage or Wall 3-4 nights a week. We took advantage of that breakfast quite a few times. Alas it did not last though. I think it must not be cost efficient to staff a place if you can’t get a consistent amount of customers EVERY morning. Clearly it works alright for Houndogs though…February 1, 2009 4:18 am at 4:18 am in reply to: Rumor/Confimation Please: Round Bar closing TONIGHT! #255891
I heard about this last week. It is too bad. I used to work with one of the owners at Lindeys over a decade ago. I suspect there may be a couple sudden closings this time of year. Liquor license renewal deadline is February 1st, so if bars/restaurants are really struggling, it isn’t worth shelling out the cash. Seems like there are always a few sad surprises in early February. So go support your favorite small local joints this week!!

yes but I am very single so what do I know?
Honestly I don’t see what the big deal is. I hate it when people do anti-valentine’s day or celebrate it. it’s just another saturday night.
This is true as well. I do not like the marketing/ go out& spend& consume aspects of this “holiday” either. Christmas is much more evil though as far as I am concerned. “Go spend money on items people don’t want or need to show them how much you care about them”. Barf.
At least this day (in my mind) is an extra reason for people who are together to be a little extra sweet or sexy to each other. It is still quite unneccesary though ( well HOPEFULLY!).

do guys even celebrate valentine’s day? I thought steak & bj day was like their version.
(it’s march 14th in case you didn’t know)
I’m with you… what kind of guys are these gals dating??? Call me oldfashioned, but a BJ& a belly full of some tasty homemade (actually that is probably not necessary either) food is enough to make most men elated for a day or two. At least that’s what I hear… ;)

I was in Portland last weekend and stopped in North 45, which has a great selection of Belgiam beer. I tried Maredsous Dubbel for the first time and it was awesome. Anyone else had this? It was a completely new one to me.
Maredsous 8 is one of my favorite Belgians. Winking Lizard has it on tap on their Belgian handle this month too.
I had this on tap last month& am putting it back on in a couple weeks (the distributor ran out).
Bell’s 2 Hearted is one of my faves& if I want something lighter, Hennepin or Allagash.
Awwww I miss the old BLD space. I donated several kegs to their parties/events. My favorite painting is one I purchased at one of their silent auctions. That artist is living in ATL now I think& selling paintings for big bucks now! The halloween parties there were too much fun as well. Good times!
The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner& Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert& Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell.
Last night I made some whole wheat penne with roasted beets& goat cheese. I chopped the tops, sauted them as well with garlic, tarragon& chili flake& finshed it with a little half& half. Crack a bit of black pepper& salt- VOILA! It was tasty& pretty healthy. I slightly varied a recipe in the Flexitarian Table to make it. I highly recommend that book for any vegetarians, pseudo-veges, or anyone dating a vegetarian. EVERYTHING I have made from it has been outstanding!
