Hell's Kitchen & Hunter S. Thompson

These are a couple of photos from our visit to Hell's Kitchen in Minneapolis back in August.
Duh! A light bulb went on during this visit; I'd posted before, separately in two posts, about Hell's kitchen and their delicious peanut butter, and about Hunter S. Thompson. And there was something hauntingly familiar about the artwork on the walls of Hell's Kitchen. . . .

This time, I read through the back of the menu and realized that the illustrator for Hunter Thompson did the art work for Hell's Kitchen!!! Uh, oh. Some of my worlds are merging together in most bizarre ways!


And this most creepy photo is actually that of a very charming, sweet, innocent-looking girl, in the bathroom of Hell's Kitchen---until you walk past it! It's actually a hollogram, and changes into this creepezoid. . . and it photographs! (I should have also photographed the sweet version, but how long can you hang out in a bathroom with a camera before you get in trouble??? In Minneapolis, no less.)

And speaking of cameras. . . exciting news! I've longed to move beyong the limitations of my D40, with 6.1 MP and 3 focal points. Recently I realized that my USAA credit card had been accumulating reward points. LOTS of reward points over the years! Best Buy had a 10% off coupon this past weekend. Tomorrow I should be heading to BB to pick up my new Nikon D300s! (I hope I eventually get brave enough to take it out of the box!)

Congrats on your new camera! Don't you love USAA and their reward points? We've accumulated enough to fly all four of us home for Thanksgiving this year!

Ummm....that picture totally freaked me out, I hope I don't have bad dreams tonight! {shudders} That place is not one I would have enjoyed visiting, I guess.

But, congrats on the new camera!!! That news was totally worth getting through that freaky picture!

That's the kind of restaurant that would give me indigestion, but my kids would probably love. Congratulations on your new camera! I can't wait to see what you do with it.

I just saw a confirmation on my email that said Bob is now a member of the USAA. I asked him why he joined it and he said he want to get one on those cameras. :)
