[quote]Some Mardi Grad revelers apparently decided that taking this motto to heart — and making the most out of the one life you’ve been given — should involve a healthy dose of vandalism.

Forget about the schooling, I'm talking about do you have the stomach/steady hands to be a surgeon.
I used to think I could never, but recently (since my own sinus surgery) I've become interested in the ear/nose/throat anatomy. I find it more fascinating rather than disgusting. I think I could d...

Anyone try this place? Had a flyer on my car sometime back saying they opened. Decided to try it tonight after my first few choices were closed (why is everyone closed on Sundays?). Anyway, in here now. Completely empty. Is it a chain? Gives that vibe - sports bar/restaurant. Not expecting much.
