Did you know the Map Room opens at 6:30 AM every weekday?

I knew that they were a coffee bar in the A.M., but do they serve beer, too? I don't know if y'all have been to K's Dugout (at Foster and ... Winchester, maybe?), but they used to open around that time as well since they catered to a lot of third-shift workers who wanted a drink when they got off work.

Why does K's Dugout sound so familiar?? Did we go there for your b-day drinks one time, John?

Rossi's on State St. opens at 7:00, or did years ago when I went there at 8:00 a.m. to pick up a jacket I left there the night before. There were 2 or 3 crusty looking men in there drinking beer at that time.

Quite possibly, Jesse. I haven't been there in years, but I drank there occasionally when I lived in the area. Kr still gives me shit b/c one time when we were there, I cavalierly told a middle-aged working-class dude that he should take a job he'd been offered on an oil rig in the Persian Gulf. I was all "You'll regret it if you don't!" -- which is the kind of thing 20-something college grads use as justifications for their decisions, but I obv. didn't know shit about his life.

We had someone's birthday afterparty there years ago, maybe that's it? K_lsey was there.

If the circumstances were right I think I could drink beer @ 6:30 am.

if you don't start in the morning you can't drink all day

K's Dugout was a New Years Eve site in '05, if you were there then with me and Jaymc, Je55e.

Kay's Nappy Dugout

^^^was considering posting something like this but decided it was in poor taste

Now I'm trying to keep from posting another joke about Kay's Nappy Dugout being a poor taste, but that would also be in poor taste.

JVC, I was trying to make a joke. It was a dumb joke. I hope you didn't think I was being rude to you.

I like the idea of the mayor riding his bike around behind John's apartment, pausing to stare up at his kitchen windows.

WORST Jimmy John's experience ever (still better than most Subway visits):

- They no longer serve alfalfa sprouts - HALF THE POINT OF JIMMY JOHN'S IMO is ALFALFA SPROUTS!!
- The cashier was uncharacteristically sullen. When I changed my mind and decided to add a cookie, she jabbed the register and muttered the new total
- The roast beef on my sandwich was simply horrible :( It was riddled with unchewable fat and connective tissue and dripping w/ mayo

Also, it took an unusually long time to get my order. Can't complain b/c it was still only like 3 or 4 minutes, but normally it's done before I've even put my wallet back in my pocket.

I wonder if this "Mayor" is the dude who owns the lot and with whom I once had a minor skirmish after he blocked the alley with his car.

It was my one sure place to get sprouts in this cruel city.

Jimmy Johns actually came by the library today and dropped off like 15 free mini-sandwiches for some strange reason. As a thank you for being awesome I guess. Anyway, so yay Jimmy Johns.

Sucks. Can't they irridiate them?

What we need more of is irradiation.

Congrats, aj. That act of kindness must have sapped my local JJ's goodness today.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

I actually told them "if any of your jimmy johns comrades serve a man named Jesse K*** today, make sure to give him horrible service and food"

deploying a sewer otter unit (askance johnson), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

See, that's the kind of personalized service I expect from them.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

I really liked Jimmy John's for a long time. Okay, "really liked" is an overstatement, but I would sometimes buy sandwiches from there on purpose when I had other options, because I specifically wanted a sandwich from Jimmy John's. But it's like there's a Jimmy John's punchcard in my heart, and they used up all their punches, because about three months ago I was just like... nope. I no longer like Jimmy John's.

Nope, figured thats what it was.

I cannot eat Jimmy John's. I've always avoided them, ever since that stuff came out about the owners being racist, but then I ended up there during a quick break during a meeting and managed to get food poisoning. Now even seeing their logo makes me midly ill.

I feel confident that my opinions on major fast food sandwich chains are well documented in previous threads, but I hate Potbelly. Hate. From the second I walk in and somebody wants me to yell my order across the restaurant to the first bite of that nasty, dry breadstuff they use for their sandwiches, the whole experience is dire.

I will always hate Subway the most, though.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

Sara joins you in your hatred of potbelly. I seriously find their tuna sandwiches nigh-addictive.

deploying a sewer otter unit (askance johnson), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

Potbellys not that bad, if only because they often have warm, freshly baked cookies that are infinitely preferable to those shitty coasters Subway passes off as cookies. Also, malts.

For some reason I really like Potbellys' mustard.

Steve Youngblood (dan m), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

I've never had Potbelly cookies but their milkshakes are good.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

I love JJ's bread. I didn't know about the racism. Potbelly is also good.
