You are here


Hi Blondy. As an adult at the time, I'm guessing you were out at different days and times than the high school crowd would've been. We were pretty thick on the ground, but (most) of us had to be home to our parents at a certain hour, too.

I'm not sure how angst ridden I was, but my friends and I went there too. I remember that before I visited for the first time, my dad had to explain to me what a coffee shop was. I didn't quite get it until I went there. It was a fun place to hang out, play cards and feel cool.

Oh, we were there alright.. More in Paris, but I'd go to Mercury frequently too as the food was better. And Muddy's occasionally.

I assure you, we were there (trying to look older than the high school students we were.)

The writing is one of the worst examples of look-how-ironic-I-am Gen X pretension I've ever seen, but the menus are neat. :)

Gee whiz, Daniel. Did you learn the definition of ironic from Alanis Morissette?

Daniel, it's nowhere near the level pretentiousness as this:

Ken, yeah, I have to admit that's pretty bad.

Hi Daniel. I see that you see what I did there. Joking aside, we were at times pretty pretentious teens, so it made sense to channel that for our time travel. Ironic or no, I hope it stirred some good memories for you!

The irony of your comment....
