My double 80/20 beef lamb burger and fried egg, w/ Jayne Mansfield in the background.
Jayne alone, in all its glory – yes, that’s deep fried battered chicken! YMFO!
trip j’s… google the shit outta janie jones, it’s that cool! my girl gettin’ swallowed ‘n gentrified in her neck (literally) of the leslieville woods. double d’s (chicago deep dish pizza) doublin’ down… settin’ up shop doors down soon too! she’s sittin’ (laid-back hipster-chic, ‘n lucky-duck) pretty, that’s fer sure. after not seeing jennie for 2, perhaps 3 years??… she didn’t miss a beat, and kept going on and non-stop on w/profound life-living advice. what an incredibly uplifting, awesome soul. plus, she didn’t stop working the whole time we conversed and visited. AND, when i was ready to leave… said she was gonna give me a hug… she stopped working, then stood up and came over to give me said hug, lol. and, lucky for me… it lingered! thanks again for your insanely inspirational guru wisdom girl! i will continue to take it to heart, as i’ve always had. a part (HUGE part) of me truly believes i’m here, where i am in my life… the person i’ve become these past 3-4 years because of things you said to me in the past, and the influence/persuasion that only you’re capable of w/your subtle teachings! thank you, my friend… thank you thank you thank you!!!!
oh, and she STILL proudly hangs that awesome pic i snapped eons ago (i pulled it down to take a pic, of THAT pic, lol). doing so, i remember, she had it enlarged and printed… she was so happy, proud. i’m happy, proud too jennie! was SO good seeing you… and, i’ll be back to see you, learn more from you… you can count on that!
… jennie from the block y’all!
But, I do love the sport, and especially my TO Blue Jays, and, the American League East in particular! I can’t believe its competitiveness, and wanna give y’all an insight to what’s going on right now… the fourth place team (NY Yankees) are currently 76-55 playing .539 ball. This puts them in second place in any other division in the Majors. Yet, in the AL East, they sit in fourth… but, here’s the thing… they still have a legit chance to win the division! All other division leaders appear a lock to win (w/the NL West being a possible exception; and that’s dubious). MLB‘s nail-biting excitement is right here in my backyard! My Jays rock! My AL East rocks… I rock too, lol!
… back to my regular bullshit blogging program!
Well, I did eat my mortadella sammie at 10 am, then WAY too much unexpected and gratis Pizza Nova pizza at 1 o’clock… so Eddie, you better Vedder believe, I’m going hungry tonight!
As far as my plate being full; tonight, I fuelled and wash Baby Zen, did laundry too! Alarm is set for 6:15 (on day off, no less) in the morning, then tomorrow; dentist, insurance adjuster (sorry, I bailed on Barque, logistically and from my schedule timeframe, Starbucks made more sense, and will suffice), groceries (Highland Farms), financial advisor (fingers crossed you’ll be in the office on a shite Saturday), optometrist… culminating w/a icantbelieveisqueezedsuchashitloadintothese20hours peaceful, lovely, and joyful (and deserving, lol) brunch… on Tiff K‘s dime!
… first one in a coon’s age! hey, I really, really do deserve this … have been such a good (conservative) boy, lol! lookie y’all, is my fifty dollar pie!! so mofo good too!! wish I snapped pics of golden bottom, blackened edges … uhmm, way too hungry! mungia! #toomuchpieforoneguy
Nothin’ like beer for a life-pick-me-up! Least something good happened today! Heard many positive things ’bout Indie Alehouse Brewing Co. and though I’m often in The Junction … I’ve never been. With today’s circumstances conspiring against me, was no way was gonna add to that dubious streak of missing out on great suds! Being the artful-parking-dodger that I am, lucked out TWICE w/the same city servant dispensing tickets like nobody’s business. “Why don’t you just pay?” she asked all upset-like, as if the money not being collected was hers, lol … before moving along looking for her next ticket tally, and more importantly … luckily letting me off scot-free w/my scofflawing ways, lol! A few pics, y’all!
Beer To Go!
Me & My Growler!
One Day Old Beer!
If only life was so easy, so simple? We can only hope!
Burger joint with a gazillion burgers! Gourmet burgers too! Makes your head spin trying to pick that perfect one, so many mouthwatering choices. I know I’ve been lazy lately w/ pics, and w/ food blogging. Not that I haven’t been going to lotsa fun places, I have … just been lazy w/ the pics & bloggin’ ’bout it! And to prove my laziness, this was two week-ends ago, on The Danforth – 888 Danforth – love that lucky number!!
Leaside Burger – upgraded … lean ground Elk …
a side of fries and the obligatory gravy …
Sam Adams AND the Sam Adams glass too – nice touch …
here’s my record run – ALMOST cracked the 17 minute barrier. honestly, don’t think i’m capable of giving more than i did today.
we decided to paint. paint the garage door. i hate painting. but, the day was PERFECT … sunny, breezy, about 18°. plus, that shit was like clam chowder, like tapioca pudding … so i don’t really consider it painting, more like globbing on thick shit, lol. and OMFG, Tiff picked out the most gorgeous colour (Behr’s antique white 1823u from Home Depot), semi-gloss … the premium plus w/ primer. we def have the best looking garage door in the neighbourhood.
picked up the italians from the airport. drove them home, had the best time listening to their experiences/vacation stories. late evening, went out for dinner, and ’cause of boy wonder’s clout, the bill for the WHOLE dinner came to a whopping $7 + tax … I was charged for only ONE beer, lol!! suffice it to say, we left a huge-ass tip. it’s either the cheapest dinner we ever had, or the most expensive beer of all time, lol. was a great day, a great week-end.
tomorrow – stay tuned. big birthday bash!
… the best beer, and the best wings! Creemore & Duff’s … ain’t nothing better. A few pics from today. Oh, I ordered the Superhot!
… we WagJagged the shit outta the joint! Tiff signed up for the typical coupon rate – pay $10, get $20. ‘Cept she was asked to complete a survey (said, it wasn’t even really a survey, only a few questions) and would be credited $5 for doing so. Hello? Freebies for Tiff are a no-brainer, lol! And Fionn’s was tacking on an extra $5 worth of fare if you used the WagJag within the first four days it became available. We went day one, lol! Bottom line: $25 credit (for a measly $5) before we even set foot in their PaddyAss pub … AND with our luck o’ the Irish, it was a Thursday, just so happens, it’s $5 craft beers night (they also offer other day of the week specials, but nothing to match this one). Anyways, a few pics (shitty pics, lighting was iPhone awful) …
My name is Dan, I’m a craft addict, lol …
Creemore – my homeboy …
Anchors Away! My love for Liberty goes WAY back …
My lamb burger w/ Stilton …
Tiff’s prime rib burger …
Check out the check y’all! Irish eyes were def smilin’ …
Great, great restaurant on Dundas … had the best fucking time!! We ordered the WHOLE menu … minus 4 starters, and 1 main, lol!! After dinner, we walked up to College St. for gelato … was so pleasant, despite the humidity … the walk I mean, the gelato was through the mofo roof sublime too!! A few pics y’all!!
