corktown social week
My "go out into the neighborhood every day" week is finished. I already wrote about Sunday-Tuesday. I went to the library after work on Wednesday, so my Corktown activity consisted of having dinner at Mudgie's on Porter Street alone.

Thursday was supposed to be trivia night at McShane's, which usually takes place at 8pm but was moved to 9pm because of a party. The party was still dying down when I got there at nine and I didn't see any familiar neighbors. I invited Kara to come along and she brought Neil. *No* other neighbors came, so the three of us just sat there and drank for a couple of hours. (I had pop.) The owner felt bad that we were the only ones who came out, so he gave us the drinks for free.

On Friday Annie D. and I had dinner at the Lager House. We ordered vegan tempeh "po-boy" sandwiches that they had on special. Afterward I wanted to watch Everybody's Fine, the descriptions of which made it seem very similar to About Schmidt, except with Robert DeNiro instead of Jack Nicholson. It ended up being boring. Half way through the movie, Robert DeNiro is given a ride by a female truck driver, and I made a Large Marge reference. Annie didn't get it because she had never seen Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. We stopped the boring movie and watched Pee-Wee instead.

On Saturday morning I went to Brooklyn Street Local. It was only my second time there and I felt like an idiot for not going there more often. It's *right* across Michigan Avenue, and I can sit there and look at my house while eating a hot vegan brunch served by lovely hippie/hipster ladies.

There are so many things to do so close to home, and yet, I never go out. Glad you're getting out and enjoying life, Paul. It makes me happy.

You're practically in the next neighborhood over and I've only met you once, over a year ago. Do you have time to hang out this week? Like Wednesday?

Has it been that long? I really think it has been...wow. I should be free Wednesday. Macomb is on winter break, and I'm just doing business errands in the morning. What time?

Yeah, that was September 20, 2011 according to my LJ. :) Six o'clock works for me. Do you want to go somewhere for dinner? If so, do you want to meet up somewhere by you, or do you want to check out one of Corktown's many fine eateries?

Can we meet up at your place so I can finally see the Bagley house? Then, we can get something from a little Corktown gem. It seems as is the city by you has come to life with all these little places I've never been to.

Yes, I'd love to show you the place! Bring D if you think she'd want to join us. :)

You know who loves trivia? ME! However I vowed never to go to McShanes because they are an eyesore with an offensive logo. STILL. If you ever play somewhere else I'd be interested!

I'm not yet aware of any other trivia ... groups? I've only just begun to venture out onto the planet earth. That reminds me, I should probably join that drunk history group.

I'm glad I'm not alone in my feelings about the McShanes logo.
