johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

happie holidaze part 2: 'christmas story' house open in cleveland

word around the flagpole is that someone purchased ralphie's house featured in the 1983 classic movie "a christmas story" on ebay in 1994 and renovated it.

now, there is an adjacent museum and the home itself is open for public tours! anyone been there yet? i wanna go into the basement and yell "nadafinga!!!" at the boiler...

I've heard that No Idea Tavern in SoBo has a leg lamp.

You forgot to mention the 2-story tall leg lamp fashioned out of Christmas lights on the side of the house at 28th and Howard Streets.

For those of us who won't be going to Cleveland soon, I appreciate the leg lamp lights.
