It's the first time I've bought drink tickets from senior citizens at a club...

This was part of the decor at the Winter City Lodge at Nathan Phillips Square.

They made the lodge into a dance club complete with bouncers with a velvet rope. They made us line up for a while outside even though there’s plenty of room inside. Too funny.

Also funny is this list of creation science friendly science fair topics.

A shot of Tonya’s fake pleather jacket. More things should be made out of fake pleather.

Detroit Eatery

I don't really like hockey...but this place was still worth the visit.

In our quest to discover new and wonderful breakfast spots, Tonya found the Detroit Eatery on the Danforth. A restaurant covered with Redwings paraphernalia. It was good but not as good a People’s Foods.

You can see our reflection in the door if you look closely.

It’s been a month since Obama was sworn in. The hype seems to be holding steady.


What are the chances the store rearranged their shelf so that they could be next to each other?
