Whatever happened to Emmanuel Lewis? I liked him in “Webster” back in the ‘80’s. I really thought he going to be big.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11am YETI BOB:

Handy - we are at my in-laws outside of Baltimore. Drove 2 days to get here, only to re-re-rediscover that we essentially have nothing in common. DJ Greg - if you are taking requests, could I hear "This Might Be The Last Time" by the Rolling Stones?

Scrooged sting?

Yeah, YB. 'Tis the season, I guess. I'm making eggs and pouring some cider. To the bar car!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am YETI BOB:

I did get to visit an old friend of mine in Pittsburgh on the way out here. He bought an old house in Polish Hill that he's fixing up. So that part was nice. And we're dropping in on some other friends in Toledo on the way back. So I just gotta get through today. I've got edibles and a pile of books to read while everyone vegges out in front of the TV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Greg from ZONE 5:

Any time spent in Pittsburgh is time well spent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am YETI BOB:

Greg - I don't know the town well but Polish Hill seemed pretty cool! Lots of stuff was closed b/c of Xmas. I'll spend more time there in the future, I'm sure. Any recommendations?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am Greg from ZONE 5:

Yes! PNC Park, Nadine's Diner, Attic Records, Warhol Museum, Mattress Factory, Banjo Night @ The Elks Lodge...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am YETI BOB:

Thanks for the list Greg! Next time I'm there I'll do as many of those as I can.

Sir Handy - I went to the Sportsman's Club in Chicago last week, had a Sportsman's Cocktail, was wondering if you've ever tried that (whiskey, zucca, absinthe)... it was so good I had 2, and then tried to imitiate it at home (amaro replacing the zucca, b/c that's what I had on hand)
