...I have to send a big shout-out to www.TheCanadianBrewhouse.com today. Last night was their annual "LobsterFest," and it was also Alexander Keith's 217th birthday, which makes for a near-lethal combination of food & beer! Thanks again to the gang behind the bar for the numerous "Dangles" & "Woodsies" too, I'm glad I left my car there. After a "LobsterFest" about six or seven years ago, I finished my night by inadvertently falling down an entire flight of those huge, old, nasty, wooden stairs in the river valley; having my wife with me last night probably saved me from more unnecessary "mystery injuries." I bartend every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at the Downtown Brew. There's a Canadian Brewhouse coming soon to Spruce Grove too!

ALSO INSANE, BUT DORKY ... Everyone knows of David Blaine's "mystical, death-defying, magical, stunts & illusions," so this is nothing out of the ordinary for him.
