Where there's smoke...

There is fire.

I had a lazy day yesterday- I was tired and needed some relaxation time. It was Mia's birthday, too. She's 8 now, or 48 in human years, according to this chart. Plus, it was father's day, and I figured since I'm kinda my cat's father, I deserved a day of watching movies, bike riding, and petting my cat.

Around about 5:50, I remembered that I had to go to the Osco around the corner. All my bike riding has finally exhausted my gatorade supply. I was walking back, when I looked up at what was earlier a very beautiful blue sky, but saw some very ugly dark brown smoke.

Something's burning, I thought to myself.

The smoke appeared to originate south and east of my house, and I thought of all my friends who live down that-a-way, which is quite a few. What I couldn't tell, however where exactly the fire was. Turns out it was the Dominick's Store on Broadway. I used to go there to use their cash station from time to time, because it was one of the few ATMs where you could get cash out in $5 increments. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt, and the fire didn't damage any of the bars around there that I like(ok, the one bar around there that I really like).

Anyways, there's some big news in the life of your humble narrator, which we'll get to in a bit. Unfortunately, I've got some work to do.

Big news? Is it the brand new Logan's Dave Wolves and Karoke Den build on the one time Dominick's?

That'd be good.

since i live only a few blocks from the charred dominick's and, upon seeing the smoke, immediately thought to myself, "uh oh, i hope the avenue isn't on fire!" i have to ask- which is the one bar around there that you like?

Me and some friends used to hang out at Friar Tuck's and play that infernal dart game for hours and hours.

But that was a while ago. Somewhere in there, I think I have a picture up.
