B-I-N-G-Oh No!

Alternate titles for today:
“Bad Dog!”

Last night I was going to get out of the house (for the first time since Friday?) and planned to meet up with a friend and former coworker at DBA Barbecue, and upon confirmation was going to send my friend and former boss Hank an invite to join us. While I was on the trainer yesterday I received a text telling me that my friend was still sick, recovering from the flu, and he regretted not being able to make it.

After finishing on the trainer and cleaning up I sent Hank a text asking him if he wanted to meet up at Lucky’s Burger and Brew, this way we could spend some of the money on our purchased gift cards and perhaps play a little bar bingo.

As I was readying to leave the house I got a call from Hank. “Hey, I was looking up Lucky’s address to send to my nephew so that he could join us and Google says that it’s permanently closed. I tried calling them and the phone just rang and rang.” Having just seen Fox Bros BBQ say on Twitter that someone erroneously declared their location permanently closed while they were closed for a week to perform renovations, I nearly uttered “In-con-CEIVABLE!”.

And then I saw this on the door of Lucky’s:
Bad Dog!


Now I will have to make the drive up to the Brookhaven location to use up the balances remaining on the gift cards. Looks as if someone will be doing some Costco shopping and working out at LA Fitness in the process.

Busy Busy
More German studying and computer programming needs to occur today, as in I need to start right now…

Have a great day, friends.

  1. Oh yeah, on the trainer I started watching TAR season 6, which is the season aired before I started watching in 2005. One episode in and I hate all of these couples; this will be an interesting season to watch.

    My memory isn’t that good, so if you hate all of them so far, I’m curious who they all are. Guess later on I will be using the Google.

    Allan & I were all ready to go to a spin class yesterday, and I’m glad I checked, the Y was closed yesterday for MLK Day. What’s up with that? A health club closed a day in January.
    So – we made spaghetti for dinner & watched a few more episodes of Bosch – we are screwed on the 2nd season now, as I cancelled the free trial Prime membership. Allan might try to activate a new one with his login info – or I see we can do Prime Video only for $8.99/month. Or, we will just never know how this murder was solved. I do kind of like Bosch, he’s a good character, I like Michael Connelly’s books.

    • From this season you might remember the obnoxious wrestlers from Florida, or perhaps the “wealthy entrepreneur couple” from Las Vegas. In the first episode, in which they went from Chicago to Iceland and the all-male “Jewish friends from Brooklyn” team was eliminated.

      I’ve yet to venture back to LA Fitness, I may try next week or may wait until February. I was going to start Zwift this week but I’ve still not been able to successfully install the cadence/speed sensor on my bike. Phooey!

    It’s hard for me to conceive a bar so close to a university can’t make a go of it. What is the world coming to? Kids these days, all study, study, study.

    Yesterday, I went up to Janie and Michael’s (who said he was a Wheelhopper 10 years ago, which is how he met Janie) and borrowed a scrape blade to use on my tractor. I started on a section that I’ve been clearing of the crap trees and whatnot (lots of whatnot) and now need to figure how to plant grass before all the good dirt runs down the hill.

    I should have ridden yesterday, but was lax. I was going to ride in the evening, but the use of the scrape blade requires me to turn around to watch, and on the slight hill the back and forth kinda screwed with my already delicate motion/balance system. Ick.

      yes- Michael is Pee Wee’s Big Rim Job. He decided to ride way too much of a trail on just a rim after a flat. Slippery decided they’d be a good couple, so she went to work to set them up.
      It was pretty funny – after a Wheelhopper, we went to Janie’s house, and Michael tried to fix/set up some electronics – we found out the difference between an Electrical Engineer (Bob aka StuddaBubba) and a Mechanical Engineer (Michael). I could have their degrees backwards. Anyway, Michael was having a hell of time trying to figure out what the hell Bob had done. Very entertaining for a few drunks to watch.
      I need to call her.

    • I did find it odd that they closed because Lucky’s is more of a burger joint than bar, and their food is pretty decent. Perhaps Emory students don’t eat meat?

    • I figured most people were tired of hearing about the tenth anniversary, so I didn’t post anything about it. Besides, I didn’t get into the iPhone game until the next year with the release of the iPhone 3G. Until then I used a Samsung Blackjack (GASP!).

  4. I need to figure out how I am going to get exercise today. I have a limited day with German class starting at 6:30pm.

    Okay back to studying… 🙁

  5. Steve Brady!! says:

    Walk from your house to class and MARTA/Uber home.

    Pushover had a German funny on her FB- “All children are kind, but German children are kinder.”

  6. Fine suggestion Steve, unfortunately I read it while I was riding the trainer.

    I have seen that meme on Twitter, it makes me smile every time.
