Oh, make no mistake, I would never get alterations done at a cleaner. I do however, think that a cleaner should be able to clean my jacket without disintegrating the shoulder pads.
...and yes, that was John.

I went to the AGA just last week for a professional private function after hours. I was very, very impressed to be quite honest. The Karsh exhibit was very informative/enjoyable; the Degas did nothing for me; the storm room was eerie and worth 20 minutes or so in silence; the "show" on the third floor (I'll save further description on purpose)
, however, absolutely blew me away - it is a must see/hear in my opinion. I know people that "didn't get it" and thus hated it, but I think it's fair to say that if you appreciate style, quality, simplicity, and the blending of old and new, you'll appreciate this sort of artistic expression.
Of course, the building itself was a marvel. I was quite happy to see the entrance directly to/from Churchill Station. Security was incredibly tight - at least at this event.
I walked away knowing that I'll be back with friends within the month.
...as for the Hudson's mini-burgers - it seemed to me that it was a usual Monday special. Basically, any of the usual $10.99(?) options for $5. I felt like a thief taking that deal; it's safe to say I'll be a repeat offender.
