post #63676 of 119006

I love thrifting when...

 

I can tell it's Harris Tweed just by touching it.

 

 

 

Someone left the MMM out on the rack so I didn't even have to look for it.

 

 

 

 

 

I finally get the mannequin I've been looking for.

GMMcl - Nice haul!

Waffle House: Not a huge fan, but my wife goes crazy for IHOP. If there's a hotel in the vicinity of an IHOP, that's where we stay. At the very least, the hotel has to provide a hot breakfast.

My weakness? Chick-fil-a. I dream about it. When I'm visiting, I honestly check out the area of the country to see if they have them. If they don't, I'm disappointed and they had better have something else worthwhile such as STEAK N' SHAKE. Steakburgers are sent from heaven.

Poker: I'm down.

One of my best friend's family owned two Chick-fil-a stores in my home town. A couple years ago my buddy moved up to PA (about an hour from me) and opened his own store. I stop in and get a char-grilled club, or a nugget meal every other Friday as part of my northern thrifting loop.

I reraise 375, he literally thinks about it for 15 minutes. Calls his all in and shows A5os. Turn was an A, river a 5. Motherfuck. Still bitter.

 

Not to get too strategic, but why check raise here?  Are you hoping he calls with a worse hand or folds? Reason I ask, is because if you know you have the best hand you don't want him to fold!

EDIT: I guess they could have had a Palm Beach location earlier that closed, and they re-entered that market in the 90s.

EDIT 2: That's indeed the case. Looks like they had a store there in the 60s, probably earlier. I'm no help here frown.gif

I gotta send the Vintage Fashion Guild a pic of my label. They don't have it and could add it to the collection. Thanks for your contribution here, even though it raises more questions (happens a lot here because those manufacturers refuse to date their garments like the mind does coins, ha)

Just by the "C" in company, compared to the dates at the Label Resource, I am guessing 1965-1972. Ish

I wouldn't call it northern Pennsylvania, I'd call it heaven.

I bring home a bag full of Chick-Fil-A sauce every time I leave the US. I always ask the worker and offer to pay. One time, a manager was waiting on me and said "You only get here once a year?" and then said here, take a few more and gave me about 20 of them. Great people.

Lol, I used to do that with McDonald's catchup when I was younger. I would bring home hand full of their packets to make dishes.

 They have them all around where I live now.

 

 I feel the same way about a BBQ place in Omaha, Nebraska. biggrin.gif

Well, let me know your preferred sauces and I will see what I can do. I love the Polynesian sauce.

Looks like a new addition for here.

"Cool Story, Bro" Time:
I went to Georgia Tech, started in 2005, got out in 2009. Yeah, that's right. 4 years for one of, if not the, best engineering degree you can get in my field. Come at me. Anyway, when I was there, there were two Waffle Houses that we'd go to: the one at Howell Mill and Defoors near Ghetto Kroger, and the one behind the strip club at Northside and 75. Guess which one had better people watching, and guess which one we usually went to. I've watched security guards taser each in the middle of an overnight shift, while eating the best drunk food you can possible consume outside of a tacqueria or curry stand. So naturally, they open a Waffle House in Tech Square the year after I graduate. ffffuuuu.gif

On thread topic: nice hauls you guys. Put me to shame. I am terrible at the thrifting.

My dad went to Ga Tech....he always told me about Varsity hot dogs. I made it a point to stop in when we were on our honeymoon.

Yes, there are a few BBQ places that I crave on a regular basis.

The one I always go for just says "Chick-Fil-A Sauce." It's some sort of tangy/creamy mustard. If you ever make it up there, you know you can expect something in return biggrin.gif

The Tech Square WH is so nice and clean (relatively speaking, of course) that it doesn't even feel like a Waffle House.
