I just find it ... incongruous.

Where's the price tag on the Chinatown celebrations? Or how many tax dollars went into Marda Loop redevelopment?

Sweet, I'm usually at Market Collective, and I think there was at least one shirt I was into.

Oh right, the +15 dude.

It was nice meeting a couple of forumers today at Market Collective (Bigtime-nice meeting you and the fam and chatting briefly, brentwood-nice chit chatting with you as well and thanks for your support with purchase of +15). I think we may have sold another +15 shirt to another forumer (DizzyEdge was that you?) but not sure
