    Speaking of local shopping…

    Do any Ypsi folks know anything about the new “Rocket” shop on Michigan Ave or the “Silent Cat Martini Bar” for that matter?

    The Rocket kicks ass. I don’t believe they use that catch phrase in their advertising, but they should consider using it.

    There are actually several service providers on Michigan Avenue that lick ass. I believe the going rate is about $15.

    It does indeed kick ass; it is also locally owned and the owner seems quite enthusiastic about being part of the community…
