    Beer. To help me enjoy the Texas-Texas A&M game. And I don't go shopping at 5am for ANYTHING, unless it's breakfast after partying all night. (Which, being a parent, I don't do anymore.)

    Nothing! I went out to TGI Friday's for some "Baby-Back Ribs."

    Ah yes, and I am just about to celebrate the 20th anniversary of my 35th birthday. My how time stands still when you're having fun! [to coin a phrase]

    Actually -- speaking of stores that aren't really upscale but pretend to be... On last night's news, they were reporting about Black Friday, and had a live shot from Beverly Hills / Rodeo Drive. The store directly behind the reporter was none other than Roots! I didn't know they had a store here, but moreover didn't know that it was BH material!

    Canucks: let's hear your thoughts on Roots (official outfitter of the US Olympics Team...)!

    Oo-o-o-oh. There are stampedes every year and that's well known, but Wal-Mart lets it happen anyway (perhaps thinking it's good publicity)? One of these years, they're going to make some plaintiff's law dude very happy.

    In most ways Canada is the superior country ( :wink: :wink: :wink: ) but when it comes to shopping choice I admit you have us beat.

    I'd be happy to get Target up here. 8) 8)

    Oh well we whip your butt in track and that's what counts. :P

    S-O-R-R-Y that I don't live in a more chic, hip, trendy neighborhood, but Kohl's IS upscale for where I live. It's identical to the Dillard's at the mall, which is pretty much as good as it gets here.

    Rumor has it that Dillard's will soon come to Indy's largest mall, replacing a large local Indiana chain's store ( LS Ayres) that got bought by Macy's , itself already located 200 yards down the mall. I've heard Dillard's is pretty nice... big down in Cincy.

It's identical to the Dillard's at the mall, which is pretty much as good as it gets here. The local Super-Walmart (parking lot is jammed 24/7 . . . literally) is our mid-scale store, if that gives you a hint where out 'brow' is located.

    We're not all rednecks here, but we ain't uppity neither.

    Yeah, I was going to say: I don't know what things are like in Florida, but Kohl's certainly isn't Nordstrom's or Macy's! It it, however, a bit higher up than Walmart.

    Re: stampedes... There are Walmart stampedes every year! It's quite frightening, actually. Last night on the news, they even had a segment of how to "keep safe" during the shopping season. Suggestions included: "be sure your car is parked in a visible spot", and my favorite: "always shop in groups -- never shop alone". :| :?:
