How To Get His Mind Off The Big Game…


Boys Girls, have we got a wardrobe malfunction Super Bowl snack Party for you. We’re talking  about  Modern Yarn’s First Annual Super Ball Party.  Owners Kristen Carlberg and Paige Sato will kick off the festivities in their store with lessons on how to knit a luscious licorice G string, with chopsticks. Choose your favorite flavor - red or black. They promise it’ll get your significant other’s eyes off the screen and rival any halftime show. Door prizes, snacks, and all the licorice you can eat. Free. This Sunday, 32A Church Street. 12:30pm to 5:00pm. 973-509-9276

If knitting's not your game, Baristanet checked the usual watering holes to find there’s gonna be a whole lot of beer specials and free food eatin’ goin on in front of those big, huge screens. You can roar, scream, and feel the testosterone at Rascal’s, Just Jakes, The Office and South Park.  Look for the usual raffles and give aways. Place your bets: Go Steelers, Go Seahawks, Go Knitters!

Which watering hole has the largest big screen TV?

And April 15 can't come soon enough ... smokeless bars ...

Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious!
I guess in this case, it's Ms. Pibb!

When people ask me "Who do you like in the Super Bowl," you know there's only one possible answer:

The Stones.

Interesting conceptual photograph conveying crucifixion imagery.

If I was emperor, I'd make the Stones retire. Puleeeze, ya gotta know when it's over.

Iceman, if you'd been at the Garden in January -- well, IMHO it's a long way from over. To each his own. But the Jagger performance is still phenomenal.

...and why must people try to get "men's minds off the big game?"

You get Valentine's Day, this evens it up in my book.

Crank (MRE),
My buddy outside of Charlotte said the same thing when he saw them on 1/12.

I can't believe they still rock the house.

Since no NY teams are playing, I couldn't really care less about this game. Looks like it will be a Blockbuster day for me.

I went from being a stones fanatic to a stones basher (we're talking over a 20 odd year timespan), but I've got to admit their new CD is really pretty good. I just wish Keith Richard would cut his hair.

Posted by: Skipwith | Feb 2, 2006 7:12:31 PM

I liked the NY Times' critic's description of Keith's hair - "looks like he got it tangled up in some wind chimes,"

The Bridges To Babylon tour did have a kinda tired feel to it, but this time round they really seem rejuvenated. And frankly, at my age, I find Mick's ability to do things that no one his age should be doing rather inspiring.

The New Yorker had a review of the stones' show at MSG, calling them "the only band endorsed by the Devil, the Queen of England, and BankAmerica."

Posted by: Skipwith | Feb 2, 2006 8:54:29 PM

Aren't they one & the same?

Naw, I'm just kidding about the Queen.

Woo I'll be there...Modern Yarn rocks my hand-knitted socks.

Back to earth from the metaphysical -

I heard on the news today that Jagger had berated the Super Bowl powers-that-be for booking NO Motown acts for the halftime show in Detroit, of all places, & they saw the error of their ways, & that's why Aretha & a few other legends are now on the bill.

Good on ya Mick, sez I. It's all about re-re-re-re-SPECT!
