Adventures in Suburbia

Last night we went to a BBQ place to see the Elvis Tribute band, The Lustre Kings, from Albany. The place had lots of campy 50s posters and huge plates of food. I don’t know why everyone in Rochester isn’t at least 300 pounds. Even appetizers here are like small meals. The crowd was older, with couple of biker dudes, pretty impressive for a Wednesday night. Even more impressive that when people go out in Rochester, it’s a big deal because it’s freezing cold and usually they have to dig their cars out first. So what is up with no one over 30 in Philadelphia going out anymore?

Today in further suburban adventures (which Andy and I like to visit but agree we’d get real bored real fast) we used our giftcards to Land’s End, where all the clerks look and talk like the cop in Fargo. I went in there hoping to find wool tights, but alas, there were none. So I bought two black turtlenecks and a pair of winter boots. Then we went to The Gap, where we also had gift cards. Andy made out well, I was pretty uninspired by this season’s collection. All the pants are low-rider style that go up your ass and create permanent camel toe. Everything else is basically khaki and blah, and again, no tights. Am I the only one who wears them?

Soon we’re going to eat at Andy’s nephew’s favorite restaurant, The Chinese Buffett. He’s been talking about going there for the past three days. While we were shopping, Andy gave him his camera and told him to “take pictures of everything in the house.” The kid’s a better photographer than I am!
