Grizzly Peak hits the spots

We went to Grizzly Peak for a Pint and some Fish & Chips. Our server Jacob was a nice fellow, he made sure I got what I wanted =9 I had a delicious seasonal brew made right there and some of there tasty Fish & Chips. The Fish is Walleye (no not Wall-E, he is a robot not a fish), it was moist and delicious. The Chips are rather slim, but crispy and good. Thanks for the Great service Jacob, Have a wonderful New Year =)

Brunch at Denny's

We started going to a restaurant called Denny's every so often lately. This place is open all the time, it really is, 24 hours a day, that means they never close. The food is traditional american food and you can get breakfast any time you want to. We really like the one here in Ann Arbor because the people are so nice and friendly. Today we had Tammy as our waitress and she was really nice, I mean it! She did not look at me strange, she asked if I had everything I needed, and made sure I liked the food, just a wonderful personality. Keep up the great customer service Tammy! We find that the customer service is have the enjoyment of a restaurant, it is all about the people.
Always remember... Plushies have feelings too.
Happy Holidays !!

Casey's Tavern

At my favorite Pub again !
With my favorite meal !
Enjoying the company and service of my favorite waitress, Suzanne !
And of course with my favorite humans, Naner Lady and the Hand.

Pintday this week (December 19) also marks the begining of Holiday for Naner Lady and the Hand. They don't have to go back to work until January 5. We also had tons of snow today, at least 6 inches, and more to come on Saturday night.

Anyway, if you ever find yourself out by the University of Michigan hospital, take a quick trip down the road (Depot Street), past the Gandy Dancer (Posh but not my thing), under the bridge and across from the Amtrak station you will see Casey's Tavern. Great Fish & Chips! Wonderful Burgers! Well, everything on the menu is really good, trust me I know, I've tried it all!

Last Days of Summer

Bell's Oberon, and wonderful summer brew.

The last day's of summer are gone and Oberon will soon be replaced by Bell's Winter White.
For those not used to the fruit with a beer, the orange slice brings out the Cardimon & Citrus flavor. Crisp and delicious.

Robot Supply and Repair

Check out this Amazing Shop !!!!

They raise money to help kids learn so that is really wonderful. Naner Lady and the Hand each have a T-shirt for the shop and we have a small robot too.
I think the Hand needs to make a robot for the house...hay Hand, get on that!

B Happy

The B Happy truck is parked at our Washtenaw store. Maybe because it is the first football game of the season and a lot of people drive down this road to get to the Big House. Doesn't matter to me why, I was just delighted to see it.
Spotted 30Aug08 in Ann Arbor at the Washtenaw store.

Pintday is coming !

We are doing Pintday a day early this week. Grizzly Peak is doing a special this August with Burger and a Pint. They have 4 specialty burgers to choose from: Texas, Buffalo (the beasty), Turkey and Brie, and Crabcake. The cost of the Burger includes chips (fries) and a Pint! The specials are Monday - Thursday and Naner Lady is scrapbooking after work on Friday, so I suggested Pintday a day early =9 I can be so sneeky, tee hee.
Note: this photo is from the day of our last blizzard during the spring, see the cool snow on the sign :) I feel it is fitting for the name, grrrrrrrrrrrrr

New Moo Cards !!!!

I'm so excited because my new Moo Cards arrived today !!! They have my name on the back as well as our email, flickr, and blogger addresses.
As you can see the first one is just a great image of me. The second two are with my favorite place to get a cuppa, Biggby Coffee. The last two are at my favorite Pintday spot, Casey's Tavern.
Thursday is the anniversary of the Washtenaw Biggby here in Ann Arbor and I will be around to get a cuppa in the morning and see what fun will be had in the evening. I will have some Moo cards for my fans and groupies.

Biggby Birthday Beach Bash

Party Time!!!
Thursday July 31st is the second anniversary for the Biggby on Washtenaw. Looks like a trip in the morning is in order to start the day and see what events will be happening in the evening. After the Naner Lady and Hand are done with work we will be at Biggby to Party ! I'll make sure Digby T Monkey is with us so that if Bob shows up Digby can go adventure with him.

We missed Bob =(

We saw that Bob was going to go to the Liberty Street Biggby in Ann Arbor, so the Hand swung by home to pick up my cousin Digby before picking us up from Naner Lady's work today. We stopped at Jerusalem Garden for dinner and then up to Biggby, but we missed Bob. He came in earlier in the afternoon and talked to Lindsey. We were all sad, but Digby is very sad because he wants to travel with Bob.

So there was a previous discussion about the condition of my teeth, me being from England and all. See here:
I had my check up with the dentist and he said I am in good shape, no cavities. I even got some free plush size toothpast and floss. Thank you Dr. Lee =)

B There

Mornin' Everyone !
The 100th Biggby store officially opens today !
I as at the Biggby store here in A2 on Washenaw this morning to get my cuppa and sticker. Elizabeth gave me a couple extra stickers for the guys at home, George and Gund. I've been very excited about this opening =)
I'm at work with the Naner Lady today because even though it is only Tuesday, it is like her Friday this week. The Ann Arbor Art Fair will be going on and driving though town to get to work is just not very easy with so many people around, so she has the rest of the week off. She is taking George to the Art Fair tomorrow morning, he is always curious about that stuff.
All right then, I've got to get off the computer so the Naner Lady can work. See you at the Liberty Street store during lunch, Cheers !

People get to sign the building and everything, while I am stuck at home. They better take me to Biggby in the morning for a cuppa so I can get some stickers.

Time for a Cuppa

My favorite place to get a good Cuppa is Biggby. Great tea, coffe, lattes, freezes, snacks...they've got it all. In addition to the deliciousness they have wonderful service, the baristas are a delight.

Hello World

My name is Nigel T. Monkey
I came to live with a nice American human couple in May of 2007.
I am originally from England, where I promoted PG Tips.

I enjoy Eating, Drinking, and Playing.
I will keep you updated here on some of my goings on. Apparently through postings from the Naner Lady (female human in the house) on Flickr and traveling with her and the Hand (male human of the house) I have become rather well known. Do to this elevation in my social status I took over the blog that Naner Lady was not using any more and will post things about ME =)

Cheers !
