Mad Men's First Episode in Haussner's Baltimore Restaurant Hon!

Thumbs up .... Mad Men's first episode takes place in the famed Haussner's Restaurant in Baltimore Hon! I was lucky enough to go there before it shut down (years ago.) Definitely not a place to eat light ... the food was German, heavy on the gravy and mashed potatoes and fantastic. Filled with antiques it was old world charm and as much a museum as it was a restaurant. Check out the auctioneer's listing of items that were sold when it closed! And, I can't believe in everything I have read, no one has mentioned the humongous ball of string!!!! You had to check the ball of string before you left ....It went up for auction and fetched $8,250.00 When Baltimore's famed Haussner's Restaurant closed its doors, Opfer Auctioneers held a sale of the restaurant's memorabilia, including the massive ball made up of the string that bound rental napkins. Compiled by the employees for generations, the bundle stood four feet tall and weighed 825 pounds.

Pink Parking Spots for Fashionistas in High Heels

Actually ... this works for me!

Pink parking spots have been designated in Seoul South Korea for fashionistas wearing stiletto shoes. They will be treated the same as people who are handicapped. The pink parking spaces are closer to shopping and business places so women in high heels don't have to walk as far. 4,929 pink parking spaces have been marked by a group known as "Women Friendly Seoul Project."
