Yowzaa.....Pat W. is opening his first store in the U.P. ......for those of you novices, that's South of Canada and East of Wisconsin....and for the most part they talk a little like the first, and some up there think they are part of the second :)
But Pat has been workin' on this store for sometime http://biggby.com/bconnected/news.php?id=34 ....and he is ready to pull the trigger and open on the 15th of April same day as Will G. (see below.) But I am fired up about this one....Escanaba is a beautiful city...and famous for much, check it out on the wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escanaba,_Michigan but more recently it received attention 'cause of the movie 'Escanaba in the Moonlight' by Michigan Native Jeff Daniels http://www.escanabathemovie.com/
Hey Pat....I can't wait to get up there....and take some pictures, clearly they are missing from this blog :) ....Does anybody want to join me up there on opening day?
I just mapped it http://maps.google.com/maps?gbv=2&hl=en&q=escanaba+in+the+moonlight&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl and it only takes 6 hours and 19 minutes to get there....let me know?
