COMMENT OF THE DAY: COLD CASE, RICE VILLAGE “Seems to me a little backwards math could figure this one out.

  • The Randalls on Weslayan used to sell blocks of ice – I believe they were 5-pound? But that was back in ’96 when I lived up the street. What about Spec’s?

    Anyway, reading the doucheterium comment alone was worth the site visit.

  • the original read as if the block-tossing location was on/in the parking garage… I would assume all residents of the high rise would have equal access?

  • From kilray:

    Dang funny.

  • Just condemn the condo’s as a public nuisance and make a parking lot for Hans’
