The Library and Other Oddities

There’s a bar in Winnipeg for people like me! Yes, a nightclub for the nerd in you, with servers wearing glasses instead of contacts and “go-go dancers dressed as sexy librarians.” Okay, it sounds a little cheesy, but it certainly sounds a step (even a short step) up from Hooters and the like. Though, of course, the real test of the place is what a server says when asked to give her opinion on, oh, Canadian reliance on American muscle or whether Ezra Pound was outright insane or a product of the 19th century trying to survive into the 20th.

This was found on Blog of a Bookslut, where I also came across the following goodies:

I fear I shall never catch up on my RSS feeds. But perhaps one feed a day shall keep me in intellectual (and other) riches.

  1. Thanks for responding. I tried looking on WinMX, but couldn’t find it. Then I was going to try Emule, but I remembered that since I’m on a college network, I will be immediately kicked off of the system for downloading music from P2P programs (I know this because it happened to me many times last year). So, I would really appreciate it if you could post it on your site. Thanks again.

  2. Why wasn’t this bar there when I lived in Winnipeg (Armpit of the universe that it is)? Next time I go back to visit my folks I’ll have to check it out.

  3. Okay, Anj, check back in a week and I’ll see what I can do. I’m about to (maybe) get a wisdom tooth pulled, so it may actually take a while.

    Blinger, I dunno, but I guess you have a strong reason to visit now. :) Take pictures, will you? I’m curious.
