I'm going so I can get my new Ruutu sweater signed for my trip to Helsinki in three weeks. Hope he has some suggestions on where to get reindeer and potatoes. Think about it; three weeks and two days before the season opener.

I haven't stepped foot in Crabtree in 4-5 years maybe but I honestly did not know the Eye closed. I seem to remember it survived the lockout and I assumed it was doing fine. Glad to know that it's coming back and in basically the same location it was before (Next to the arcade IIRC).
GO CANES GO!!!

For those of you who thought that the middle of the day on Thursday would mean nobody would be there...........WRONG! I arrived at 1:30 and the line was so long there was no way everybody would get in by 2:00, so I left.

Hmmm, I never thought the line would move that quickly. Goody for you, GC88. Yeah, I'll be in Helsinki, so I'll get another chance. We shall see.
