The freeway is open!!!! :)

When i went to lunch with allyn the saturday before last, she noticed that they'd finished the new eastbound onramp over by where it used to start/end but it had traffic cones and such blocking it. Then on thanksgiving when i was driving out to Rahvina and Sarisa's, the ramp was open! And there were cars on the freeway coming from the east!!

When i drove home after thanksgiving i got to go past the foothill exit and get off at Towne! According to the exit signs, that's about three miles of Foothill that i didn't have to drive on :)

The only thing i'm confused about is that i _thought_ the freeway was going to be called the 30 or something like that, but all the signs say the 210 now. They seem to have gone super-industrial on the carpool lane, there are _four_ lines of reflectors seperating it from the normal lanes.

I'm kind of wondering how the freeway is going to affect things. As a lot of the people who can read this already know, Foothill currently kind of marks the end of the world in the northward direction. There's a Ralphs or Albertsons and a Baskins and Robbins up on Mills, but that's about it. So is there going to be some new devolpment up there now that there will be a lot more traffic? And i wonder if the property values of people living near it is going up or down.

I don't think i remembered to mention this before, but the Dungeon had the coolest idea ever! Well, the coolest idea that i've seen in a club in a while at least :) They've got Red Bull on tap!

On tap means that they can press a button on those nozzle things which looks like it belongs on a sink and Red Bull comes out, i know this because when i excitedly told Sarisa and Rahvina that they could do that, and Sarisa got excited about them having it "on tap" :)

But in any case, it now costs $3 for a glass, which isn't bad considering the little tiny cans cost $2, and is pretty great when other clubs will often charge $6 or so for a can of it =P It's also the same price as cranberry juice and seltzer water, which is the other thing i usually get, so there's really no reason _not_ to get Red Bull now :)

THe other new thing, which is _really_ strange, is that they now sell _sushi_ there. I can't figure out why. I can't imagine how they came up with that idea. Who would think of selling sushi at a club?
