Round Here…

Thought I’d share a little documentation of my life in the past few weeks. I went to Wisconsin, Ohio, the Hamptons and all over New York City. I ate pork buns with The PBC and drank Cleveland-made brews in the heart of Miller country. I saw The Black Keys (still and forever proud sons of Akron) twice in one day – a first for me. I took Polaroids and made pancakes on a Coleman stove. Good livin’ all summer long. Enjoy.

    Nice Terrapin cards!

    Sounds like your Raleigh has something loose. Is that a Sports, or Superbe?

    Michael Williams on August 6, 2010 1:55 PM:

    A piece of the front fender is what is making that noise. It’s not loose per se but it rattles. Oh, and it is a Superbe:

    What did the Coleman stove look like, new or vintage, have a vintage Coleman stove and lantern, work so much better than the new stuff.

    Jake on August 6, 2010 2:08 PM:

    where can I get those boots?

    Michael Williams on August 6, 2010 2:12 PM:

    Shawn: Old Coleman stove, obviously!

    Jake: I’m pretty sure those boots don’t come out until SS11 (as I just saw them at a tradeshow). I’ll find out though.

    Jake on August 6, 2010 2:39 PM:

    Ah! I was at that Black Keys show! They killed it.
    But man, Terminal 5 has got to be the worst venue in this city.

    Ramalhoni on August 6, 2010 3:03 PM:

    Really beautiful pics, I’ve always wanted to go, mainly to the Hamptons !!

    Michael Williams on August 6, 2010 3:54 PM:

    I stand corrected, those Grenson boots are available starting in September. Available at: Bergdorf Goodman, Revolve, Martin Patrick, Douglas Fir and Gravity Pope.

    Big ups to the Great Lakes Brewing Co. Elliot Ness, hands down best beer they make and strong to boot.

    Steve on August 6, 2010 4:31 PM:

    Even as a Milwaukee boy, I love Great Lakes beer. My heart bleeds local brews, but I cannot deny a fine example from a city like Cleveland.

    Where’s the Cosmos Cafe? I feel like I’m missing something lovely…

    Steve on August 6, 2010 4:31 PM:

    ahhh, comet. thought it looked familiar. usually a bit hazy when I’m there.

    Michael Williams on August 6, 2010 4:32 PM:

    I mixed up the name and then corrected it (thanks to a previous commenter). Comet Cafe is the spot.

    pat on August 6, 2010 4:57 PM:

    if you’re ever in cleveland check out the great lakes brewing co.’s restaurant, outdoor seating there is a must.

    justin weeks on August 6, 2010 11:03 PM:

    I dig the Comet Cafe a lot. I live in Grand Rapids (Home of Founders Brewing), and while at Comet Cafe I asked the bartender to recommend a must drink Milwaukee beer. His response: “Skip anything from Milwaukee and go with Founders”.

    Will on August 6, 2010 11:36 PM:

    No, no, not Eliot Ness, Blackout Stout surpasses. Nothing better: caramel-y, rich…… and around 10% ABV.

    ant on August 7, 2010 1:31 PM:

    michael–i believe you’ve answered this question before, but what type of camera are you using? the quality is second to none… proper pics!

    jon on August 7, 2010 3:34 PM:

    Definitely the Riveria Club dude in the pink in the pork bun shot..What’s his name again?

    Michael Williams on August 7, 2010 9:50 PM:

    Riviera Club guy is Derek…

    Ted on August 7, 2010 9:50 PM:

    Tenet looks like a great shop. Thanks for sharing.

    Always looking for a good pork bun…where’s the pic from?

    MATT on August 9, 2010 8:44 PM:


    Michael Williams on August 9, 2010 9:42 PM:

    Ant — these were shot with one of two cameras. A Canon S90 or a Nikon D300.

    Michael Williams on August 9, 2010 9:42 PM:

    Pork bun picture is from Ippudo on 4th Ave. Killer spot.

    meri on August 10, 2010 7:16 AM:

    This is not even up for debate. Christmas Ale all the way.

    ant on August 10, 2010 10:45 AM:

    how do ippudo’s buns stack up next to fatty crab’s?

    ant on August 10, 2010 10:46 AM:

    and thanks for the camera info… time to go camera shopping!

    TysonKam on August 11, 2010 8:05 PM:

    I worked my way through High School and College at Smith Brothers Restaurant growing up in Port Washington, WI. Hope you had fun!

    Don Guss on August 12, 2010 11:42 AM:

    I see you made it to Port Washington.
    I’ve caught two of my largest salmon in that harbor.

    Nice little town.

    Jesse on August 13, 2010 5:23 AM:

    Oh man, I was to the right of the soundboard on the second floor. Almost met you! :P

    And you got to see them with The Morning Benders at Central Park? I am incredibly jealous of you. That show was sold out, and I barely got T5 tickets. :(

    And if you like pork buns…have you been to a Momofuku restaurant? If not, GO NOW. Everything about them is amazing…it is nice to see new American food.
