I'll be on vacation soon

Soon I must leave you, Midnight Sunnites.

Starting Friday, I will be on a glorious vacation. I won't get back until July 1.

And for once, I'm sure as heck not checking this blog on vacation. 

Not gonna happen. My wonderful editor Meredith will approve your comments in the meantime.

So I'm going to be posting less frequently for a little while. And I would love love love some topics from you guys. Maybe a good FFF idea? Maybe just a random thought?

Holler at me.

Nice! Have a good vacation!

oh wow, maybe you can find a dyson airblade on your vacation!

The top 5 or 10 of the most restorative/relaxing summer urban oasises or retreates for those who cannot get away just yet. Each the best of their kind or theme.

have a great time!! (you better bring all of us back some souvineers!!)

Locust Point Man, I will keep my hands wet and my eyes peeled. GDA, that's not a bad idea. SS2, you'll get what I give you and nothing more ...

Hi Sam - Can you find out what's going on w/the restaurant/space at Fort and Jackson St.? It looks like it is a new restaurant by the guy/chef from Bicycle. When will it open?

Also, what's going on w/ the space that was Ban Jara Thai restaurant?

I took a vacation/blogging sabbatical myself recently, and it was wonderful, I hope you enjoy yours!

The dyson airblade can be found in the inner harbor bathrooms across from Tir Na Nog

A digression:
Tír na nÓg, when I saw the name, I had a vague recollection of a music duo from Ireland in the seventies.

From Wikipedia's entry's,
"Tír na nÓg (Old Irish Tír na n-Oc ), (IPA: [tʲi:ɾʲ n̪ˠa n̪ˠo:g]), called in English the Land of Eternal Youth or the Land of the Ever-Young, is the most popular of the Other worlds in Irish mythology,..." "Here happiness lasts forever, no one wants for food or drink*. It is the Irish equivalent of the Greek Elysium or the Valhalla of the Norse.":

As for Tír na nÓg the Celtic duo/band; Wikipedia:
& MySpace:

* An appropriate name for a bar and grille.

I remember reading in the BBJ a few months ago that the owner of the Bicycle was opening an Italian restaurant- I believe that's in the location at Fort and Jackson.

The old Fort/Jackson location is going to be a English/Scotish styled restaurant called Ullswater. Former Banjara got bought by the Mothers conglomerate and will be turned into a idea on the 'theme'...

You have an editor?

The old Soigne, Sly Fox was bought by the owners of the Bicycle and they are opening an Italian restaurant.
