L and I took a trip to Moose Jaw yesterday.
We wanted to see how the Moose Javians lived, both past and present. Presently, they seem to have a thing for cars on rooftops and, of course, Al Capone
Moose Jaw has one of the best Thai restaurants in Canada, Nit's
. It's sad that restaurants are so hard to make out with.
The food was so freaking good that I ate it before I remembered to take a picture of it. What you see are the remnants of a cucumber and red onion salad and the peanut sauce that went with chicken on wooden sticks.
The food is incredible, which is why I continue to go back after seeing the state of their bathroom. Ew. L wouldn't even touch the roller towel.
Nit's Rule #1: DO NOT let the state of the bathroom make your imagination run wild. Just concentrate on the chicken in red sauce and carry on.
After lunch, we went on a tour of the underground laundry in the Tunnels of Moose Jaw
where Chinese immigrants lived and worked for terribly low wages and poor treatment. We paid $13 to be ordered around and told we were lazy. Luckily, I like that sort of thing.
The Moose Javians even have a fancy schmancy trolley in keeping with the 1907 theme.
The placard beneath following painting says "We prefer to think of it as a "meaningful relationship". I'm sure you do, perverts.
Then, with full stomachs and a fresh dose of cultural shame, we headed back to Cityville for beer with some fine folks, including the Palinode
, who you can see was feeling quite blurry and over-exposed. And yes, that is a scarf he's wearing. I'm no longer on speaking terms with August.
