I'm going to take a break from not making any money off this blog to mention, just this once, that I'm clearing out a lot of merch from my retail endeavors in the Mezzanine clearance sale in the Hugh space. Everything is really discounted, like 30-70% off!
It's mostly Mezzanine stuff, big and small, so if you like Saarinen dining or end tables, I've got 'em. If you like ebony knife rests made in Paris, I've got 'em. If you like Nelson bubble lamps, I've got 'em. And quite a few great gift ideas for Mother's Day (it's next week, I know you forgot).
There's some Hugh overstocked stuff in there too, so even though I will be selling on the web there are a few things I've just got too much of. There is decorative stuff, kitchen stuff, tabletop stuff, furnishing stuff, rug stuff ... essentially, if you like good design and good bargains, you should stop by. And it's only in the store, not much is online.
This weekend is the final weekend, it's open 1-8 today and tomorrow and 1:30-5 on Sunday (do be cognizant of the Tigers' home game schedule). It's located right behind the Fox Theater, next to Centaur, in the retail space formerly known as Hugh.
Someone posted this game on Facebook today and I found it to be a more than entertaining timekiller, plus it features unicorns and Erasure! Perfect!
I hope Mark Maynard and his intellectual property people are on the Adult Swim folks about the clear copyright infringement, however.
Smoke 'em while you've got 'em! Mercifully, the smoking ban kicks in tomorrow. I'm proud to be from a state that barely avoided being in the last ten states to take this step.
I'm sympathetic to my smoking friends, but this was a long time coming and I have paid a lot of dry cleaning bills because of your nasty habit. I am pleased.
If you are looking to see out the smoking era right, the Ruth Ellis Center has a Ferndale-based bar crawl called "The Last Drag" going on tonight that should be fun. It starts at Loving Touch and ends with a drag show at Club Nine. With plenty of drinking and smoking in-between. More details at the Facebook event page.
And with that, I leave you to your weekend. Have a good one.
