Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back after a lovely Thanksgiving weekend. SUBWAYblogger’s back in business, sorry for the lack of posts.
Without further adieu, we believe it is time for our annual public service announcement for tourists visiting our fair city for the holidays. Here goes:
Get Out of the Way. Thank you.

There’s this new TV show on the History Channel called Sandhogs. No, we’re not being paid to write this, so everyone relax.

Think of all the extra people you [...]
