That's fucking LOVE, man. That's what it looks like.
@jenn That's fucking LOVE, man. That's what it looks like.
Aw shucks. Well as many of you know he's a pretty awesome dude, so it's not that hard to work through with him.
@Slee ZZ NOOK! I don't even know what the Rocket place is.
Yeah, I had to look it up. Bottle Rocket? On St. Clair? Used to be something else, and then something else before that? Yeah I dunno, all I know is I wants someplace with meat, and I have to be back to lead a Communications meeting by 1.
@jonbehm The Rocket place is just down the street from where I work. Good food
It was good! Super empty at lunch though. I had fish tacos. Portions are ridiculously large. Now my burps smell.
@pitpat, Toby Ronnie is it where Acme Deli used to be?
anyone remember that place?
Is Acme gone now? They were over south of Snelling on St. Clair. VERY GOOD SANDOS. I think Bottle Rocket is in the old Heartland space?
I don't know how they pulled it off, between the thc-addled customers being served sandwiches by thc-addled staff off an incredibly complicated menu. At least that's the vibe I got.
Or perhaps that was the magic that made it all work.
I do remember that the last time I went to the Broiler across Snelling with my parents, the waitress spilled something on my dad, and the dishwasher walked by, motioned to my dad's steak knife, and muttered "If I were you I'd stab her with it."
It's a really lovely neighborhood.
@stuffedpheasant Man I used to eat so many white bread white turkey white cheese white mayo lettuce sandwiches from Acme b/c I was so very Thai Food Is Too Spicy in college.
lulz that is me, too, except replace "from Acme" with "at home". Funny how much your tastebuds evolve, now I can't enough of dat ethnic shit.
I had to go to the Thai place on Selby with my (contra)bass instructor and her other two students (one of whom was cool Amanda from that cool Triangle band/MNDR, seriously, she was so cool) - and I saw that all the food had CILANTRO in and around it and looked SPICY so I was like "Um, I'm not hungry. I'll just have the......... the Thai Lemonade" but - what? - the Thai Lemonade was SPICY TOO!
Having to eat mock duck with chopsticks a week later at someone's house while practicing our super refined method acting skills on some Sam Shepard scene or whatever really put me out of my podunk comfort zone.
White girl life is so hard.
My kid and I just sent his dad on his way to The Cities for his date. I'm showing him America's Funniest Home Videos for the first time, and one of the first videos was of a cat with its nose shoved good and deep up another cat's ass. A good sign? I sure hope so.
Everything is weird.
