7degrees tomorrow!? sweet!
I can't remember the name, but there is a vietnamese sub shob in china town too..They raised their prices to $1.50 for a foot long sub...(last year they were $1). I don't want to know or care what they put in the subs, but they taste good and I'm sure they are packed with goodness!

i think there are 4 of the saigon sub stores all on the same block but my favourite one (co yen) closed its doors awhile ago... it's funny how every store raised their prices at the same time though. it was something like over-night!! hmmm..... but a buck-fiddy is still cheap. i love the mass of bikes locked up on that corner (SW spadina/dundas) between the old ladies selling their home grown.. whatta mess.
7C for critical mass tomorrow??

They just moved. And that $1.50 thing, the china town triads got to them... HEH.
One store has better subs than the other. In fact i'm eating one right now.

<- Self proclaimed vietnamese sub expert.

Up for Sunday, Sat no go, chinese new year.

CM: who's going, I might bust out my bike tomorrow.

right back at you.
today's not chinese new years is it.....!? edit- sunday.

and as for viet bun shops in Scarborough.
The only one that crosses my mind is the shop that supplies for all the TNT shops,
and thats located @ Middlefield and Steeles right beside TNT.
I'm sure there's other locations, but I just haven't spotted any others.

man... I get the shivers each time I open up my viet bun to pick out the nasty green stuff.
the spreaded lard all pasty and pale brown. urg.
I saw them making my sandwich once. The lard comes in a long roll and they just cut some off and spread it all over the bun. yum.

and as for cheapest eats:
IKEA & COSTO yea! + they have self-refills!

But I am really hungry and want pork buns..LOTS of pork buns..so if anyone is going on early afternoon bun runs I'm in

JEREMY! Awesome to see you on the board too!
Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well!!

RoB
nice to be here rob. when are we going riding again? i'd be up for a pork bun run one afternoon. give me a shout. i thought we'd lost you for a while there; the last few TFG rides have not had the highest attendance however. you did miss our last official one, the "scotch and snow" ride to feathers pub on kingston road.

that reminds me: a favourite pub in the east end, feathers. old school brit pub whose claim to fame is having over 450 single malts behind the bar, some of which is exclusive to feathers.

other than that - whelans gate at bloor near high park. and the green room if i feel like getting drunk and feeling like a student again.

you know, collingwood is not *that far* from michael stadtlander's "eigensinn farm" in singhampton.

you could also detour via mono hills (peter cellar's pub), hockley valley (woodside grill) and creemore...

YIKES, that's crazy.
I've seen that girl our office before, flirted with her even... not like every other office dork probably hasn't, but she seems good humoured. I'm shocked and amazed that it was all captured the way it was.
With my job I'm never out on the streets in the middle of a weekday so I never see what kind of crazy action happens out there, but this is nuts.

I know her. Her name is Leah and fer all the flirtatious boys out there she has a boyfriend. That guy is lucky her BF wasn't on the scene or things would shurely have gotten badly out of hand.

On the used bikes front there is only 1 bike left from the first load, this s#!ts moving quick. The remaining one is a 58cm pink Miele. It is complete except for wheels. I wont be getting any more for 3 weeks.

Ahh, more are coming in - good to hear. I'm swamped doing renovations these days but I'll be able to make time to come in for the next shipment.

Keith what's your selection of used forks looking like these days? I'm looking for:
- 1" threaded
- 38mm rake
- 170mm steerer tube length

Urbane quoted me $65 for one of their Urbanite forks and there's an option from the states that'll run $50USD + shipping. If you think you might have some options, please let me know.
