@Chris Timmerman@twitter color me embarrassed. thought you meant michael's, the mecca of craft stores, which just opened up a branch. guess that was only exciting to me (and other people who like crafts and cats etc etc)
also, i registered on the Awl solely to comment on this article. which i've now done, like, 6 times.
@Chris Timmerman@twitter there's a Michael's at 97th and columbus. you're welcome.
and @Art Yucko thanks. thanks a whole lot. i'd like one butterburger and a large flavor of the day to go.
@jasonnn ?? commonly known fact that the packers are the only 'fan-owned' team. everyone within a 200 mile radius 'owns' part of the team. and everyone has season tickets. or knows someone who does!
@iplaudius @The Dependent Clause @Carrie Frye love this! i agree, totally magical. @iplaudius how much math did you take in college? that's your hint. & i miss peggy's! it is now some rando cafe. and beaners has a new name now, too. the horror! the second best thing (after driving my parents minivan w/ packer sticker to target) about going home to visit is that i live w/i walking distance of the ave.
@James Hamblin@twitter truth. the flannel shirt and cowboy boots i wore around New York last fall to fit in with the hipsters helped me fit in at Menards when I went home over the holidays. all i was missing was a bright orange jacket for hunting season. keep an eye out on the streets of fort greene this winter...
As a current New Yorker who grew up in Appleton (dad's a Lawrence prof), first I wanna say hollaaa to @iplaudius. College Ave, what what? Secondly, where's the love for the Friday Fish Fries at the VFW? Also, perhaps more importantly, if NY is really so hip to the trends, why have I yet to find a Culver's in the tri-city area?
