Water in cans, like beer in cans, makes sense, it'll be less affected by light leaching plastics into it, and aluminum's a lot easier to recycle than plastic.

Ah yes, "Haute Cuisine" in the Old Northeast - a wide variety with anything you want, as long as it's Mexican.

Just step over the druggies in the doorway, and if offered the "house special", run!

12:06, apparently you have not visited the Northeast in a while, or maybe never. Plenty of good Mexican (and Salvadoran, and Guatemalan) food, sure, but lots more besides. I had a very tasty Burmese lunch this week. But please don't come looking. Belton is more your style.

BTW, Peter May's House of Kielbasa, while worth a visit, is not in the Old Northeast.

Probably Siamese, one went missing on Denver Monday.
But they have "filled" a few of the potholes around Budd Park, so I guess that's an improvement.
