I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

113 days, and counting!

… (is a prime number btw) and I cannot wait till it hits zero! … ok, here goes; I’M MOVING BITCHES, and am chuffed as fuck! The cat was let outta bag for those in the know some time ago, and now y’all are officially included in dansnewsoftheday… I’m moving to Leslieville (many pics/blogs will follow too – promise)! Queen Street East Mofos! I’m gonna be an east-end hipster, lol! I keep calendar counting down the days, playing it all out in my mind, over and over… and over! Completely cognizant there’s still so much to do before the day arrives, but come October 1st, am looking (& leaping) forward to the countless, new neighbourhood experiences to enjoy… is my (soon to be) new life! Yep, chuffed as mofo fuck!

… perhaps a hop, skip (no jump – weez too old) for burgers @ the Brooklyn to celebrate (again), whaddya ya think Tiff K?… yer dime… well, maybe, we’ll see, lol!

for whom the bellwoods tolls

Bellwoods Brewery y’all!! Ambled on over after our Ossington Ave. Wonderboy birthday brunch. These hipster places are popping up all over, and it’s these doofuses who insist on letting everyone know how great and cool these places are with their geek tweets even though it may not be the case … as long as their social media fingers are the quickest outta the pockets/purses … but, I digress. I’ll speak the truth, PLUS I’m a beer drinker from WAY back with a shitload of experience under my 32″ waisted belt, so I kinda know my stuff. Here are my thoughts. I liked the beer (White Picket Fence Belgian Wheat, Bootknife (Belgian Brown)) enough, and I’m a HUGE fan of fresh beers, so they scored bonus points. But, there is no escaping economics, and these 650 ml bottle were priced too high, WAY too high – $5.85 (I recall, thereabouts in any case), and I won’t ever buy again due to that very reason. Saying you’re pricey is the proverbial understatement. A quick example/lesson of better beers w/ better prices; Beau’s Lugtread 4X600ml bottles – $15.85 … and my favourite night and day comparison – Chimay Premiere 750 ml – $6.00 … less 10¢ deposit to boot. Word to the wise, ya get what ya pay for … and my smart money’s on Chimay!!
