Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on A Couple Notes on Slog Happy


Books! I was planning on being there already, but now I'm planning...more? I need more to read, and if you recommend it that's a start.

You're just trying to get the pile off your desk, aren't you?

Books are good.

And if Thai Star does take-out, that's good too.

Thai Star does do take-out. I've actually never eaten in their restaurant, which, I cannot emphasize enough, is really ugly.

staff hasn't cared before when I've brought food to eat to the Hideout from Thai Star

Free books make me happy. Very. Very. Happy. Will there be a Slog book review challenge too after we read them?

As all Fremonsters do, I love Thai food - great idea!

So, do they have a real 4 star or do I have to order 5 star to get 4 star there?

I think if you bring some Thai cookbooks, we can review the recipes, PopTart. Or just all do takeout.

Books are good, but parading's better...

If you go to Thai Star I would suggest gazing at the jigsaw puzzle art of Minnie and Mickey walking through a post-apocalyptic world. It's hanging on the left wall when you walk in. So strange...

I'll be bringing some advance reader's copies for anyone who's interested.... I canít tell if the free books will bring new people out or inspire more people to stay home.

No, this is good... only holding the Happy on a golf course could possibly interest me more.

Will, star per gallon, buddy.

1. Free books are better than random Stranger swag.

2. Thai food? That is not what I want to be eating to cushion my stomach against an onslaught of beer.

Thai Star is, indeed, good shit. I had no idea there was a bar there. Nice.

Sadly, I'm taking the MCAT at 8am the next morning, so no Slog Happy for me.

I feel pressured to bring a baseball-related prize. . . .

Paul, are you just trying to unload that "Men are studs, women are sluts" book?

Posted by Davida | August 7, 2008 3:22 PM

I'm not going unless the venue is muppet-friendly.

@15 You totally should.

Posted by Hernandez | August 7, 2008 3:32 PM

@17 - well, there was that incident of sock-puppet abuse, but you should be fine, cookie monster.

Just don't ask for a cookie crunch ...

Posted by Will in Seattle | August 7, 2008 3:55 PM

I thought teh Cookie Monster was all about the veggies and shit these days...

Posted by COMTE | August 7, 2008 4:26 PM

@16: That book is safe in my house where nobody else will ever touch it ever again.

Posted by Paul Constant | August 7, 2008 4:48 PM

Too gay. Can't go.
