Monday Morning Mirth


Now that Chicago has become such a HOT tourist destination everybody is offering generous travel stop hype…

from Men’s Health magazine: “Look for where State and Rush Streets intersect to form a triangle (nicknamed the “Viagra Triangle” because of the head-turners seen there). Best viewing area: the outdoor patio at the Tavern on Rush.”

Overheard: “It doesn’t have that Viagra feeling,” she said. “They call this area the `Viagra Triangle’ don’t they?”

Ashley was talking about the granddaddy bars of the Rush Street area, places like The Lodge and Mother’s, spots that are often a haven for, um, the older set–men and women still trying to hang on to their youth.”

Under 40? Enjoy a cocktail called the “Little Blue Pill” @Elm Street Liquors and do some People Watchin’ People Watchin’ People yourself…

Missa, aka The Midnight Knitter has finished her crocheted Capelet for the Flower Power CAL – WOW! Great job – I am on a poncho bender myself and this has given me the shot in the arm I need to get a move on…

She also has created a page with

Thanks, Missa!

The Fabulous Lisa, over at BlogDogBlog is playing with COOL buttons as she nears the finish line with her Adult Surprise Jacket. Always a treat: the pictures she posts of her tiny schmoo herd of Dachsunds:
Mike, Jack, and Della…

Her sister has a blog called Banana Flip! and a new puppy named Apple who actually is more of a fruit than possibly Gwyneth’s bambino??
