The 7-Eleven store on Aurelius Road in Holt

It’s not very often that J makes me crave something, but tonight, she did.  When she came home for dinner, she had to weave through the madness that was the gas stations in this town today.  Because people are stupid and will believe anything they hear, lines were forming in the streets on Pennsylvania and Cedar.  She had to weave through all this mess just to get home, so when it was time to go back, she didn’t want to mess with trying to get the Slurpee-type drink from Speedway which she was craving.  Just talking about it made me crave one.

Even though it was much later and all the rumors about $6 gas turned out to be untrue, I didn’t want to mess with trying to get to a gas station, so I went the other way and went to Holt.  7-Eleven occupies the corner of Holt and Aurelius Roads in the village.  It has been a few years since I’ve been in a 7-Eleven.  The convenience stores are prevalent in Chicagoland, but not where I grew up about an hour south.  7-Eleven was a treat when we would stop before or after a White Sox game at Comiskey Park.  We figured since they sponsor the White Sox (all home games start at 7:11 PM CST), we’d support them right back.  That’s what happens when your family watches NASCAR.  You support the sponsors of you’re favorite driver/team.

Dinner in Ann Arbor?

12 09 2008

Looking for suggestions again.  J and I are going to do some shopping and check out Ann Arbor.  I’ve been there a few times for work, but never had time to walk around downtown.  Since UM is on the road, we thought we’d head that way and check out H & M and try to find some place to eat.  I know I want to eat at Zingerman’s for lunch, but are there any good suggestions for dinner?  I’ve hit the hip college spots (Blimpy Burger and Fleetwood).  Is there anyplace else that we just have to go to?
