^ Nice hc4!
I've got the pork tenderloin and potatoes au gratin in the oven, myself. Just grabbed a grimlin of the new Coronado Brewing Co x Bear Republic "MerBear" Rye IPA. It's got a slightly sweet malt finish, which is going well with this BoliPC and CR Northern Harvest Rye.
HOW DARE YOU!!! Seriously though, down here in San Diego I cannot remember a time when Vans weren't in the top three most popular shoes of the moment. At least as far back as I can remember, late 70's, they have always been in the mix. Strong surf and skate culture here, obviously.
