If You're Not Losing Your Mind, You Obviously Haven't Checked Your Messages

Between working extra hours this week and having visitors from out of town, blogging will be fairly low on my list of priorities this week.

What will be on my list of priorities? Well, when one does not have a life and is then faced with a seeming glut of “shit I gotta do in the next 48 hours”, my list feels a bit overwhelming.

Since my house is awful and does not have a lot of room for guests, I’m going to try to shuffle a few things around, wash some bedding and convince the dogs that if someone new is sleeping in the beds for a few days that DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY WANT THEIR FACES LICKED AT 2 AM OH MY GOD WHY DO YOU INSIST ON DOING THAT????

They are planning on staying at a hotel for a couple nights but I feel awful not being able to offer them grand accommodations when they will be working their butts off to make this house livable.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. It also leads right up to my front porch.

I want to have some quick meals ready for them to be able to grab it and eat when they take a break during the day. I’ll be figuring that out tonight. (I’d also like some recommendations for places with good steaks and seafood as that seems to be something that they like and if I have to take them to a chain restaurant, I WILL SCREAM. I like to show off local places when people visit but I don’t get out to a lot of steakhouses. The last time I went to Timberlodge, I was disappointed.)

Of course, I also have the Home Depot Dude (HDD) coming tonight for the final measuring of my windows.

My brother and sister-in-law are supposed to be here tomorrow evening and of course, I have an Art Auction committee meeting that I need to be at for 5:30. I would feel less inclined to go if the last meeting hadn’t been cancelled because not enough people were able to attend.

Oh, and I’m transitioning into my new job next week but I will still be working in the wee hours of the morning at my old job.

And I’m signing up for college classes next week.

Aside from that, things are pretty boring right now.

I'd recommend. The Shack in Billings Park, The Hammond just this side of the High Bridge or Eddie's Supper Club out past/near the choo-choo bar as you head out of Superior on 2/53 take a right.

The Hammond is upstairs not down in the bar in case you have never been there. ]

Eddies has the decor of antique auto stuff or they just have not changed anything in the last 30 years but its clean. Its a supper club right out of the 50's or 60's.

Food is excellent at all three places. Prices figure $15-$25/person plus drinks. Remember this is Superior so Drinks are cheaper. (might be a city ordinance)

Cool! My brother and sister in law are into antique cars so Eddie's sounds spot on!

I saw the photos and was thinking the same thing. Also Dreamland Supper Club out in Douglas Co. 4368 S County Rd E is good.

2/53 out of superior Hwy 13/Z exit about 2-3 miles out. Z to the right and then E to the left. Its a few miles out but really good food. A little pricier.

Eddies is great food, tables are right out of the 50's or 60's. They have always been that way. I think they'd get a kick out of the decor. Its always fun to wait for your food and have things to just look around at. Kind of like grandmas but much smaller so make reservations.
