Every so often myself, King Dut and a few other Hey Stupid contributors, both willing and unwilling,get together for a road trip or some other debacle. When we gathered together this past weekend it was for a road trip to go see the Lake Erie Monsters take on the San Antonio Rampage in what we hoped would be fantastic AHL action. After a night of hard drinking we all agreed to meet up around 7 and hit the road.
In attendance for this fantastic voyage were myself, King Dut, Bodie, 3D and The Marine. We piled in the USS Poopsie and headed west and four hours later we were in the mistake by the lake. Our first stop was to a place called “Jack Frost Donuts” where I bought the second best cinnamon roll I’ve ever consumed.
After we left the delicious donut shack, we traveled back in time to Christmas in the 40s. We arrived at the house that shaped my childhood Christmas memories.
When I found out that the A Christmas Story house had been restored, I HAD to go check it out. In case you didn’t know, after the movie had finished filming the house had fallen into disrepair. Eventually Brian Jones, the guy responsible for the making the Leg Lamp available for purchase.
We started our tour in the museum and I was just about jumping out of my skin. The stuff there was so amazing, I will tell you up front that the “Pink Nightmare” suit and the white cowboy outfit fought Black Bart in aren’t there but everything else is truly amazing.
I can not stress enough how great this place is. If you are a fan of this movie, if you are a fan of childhood, if you’re a fan of Christmas, happiness and joy you HAVE to go see this place. Please please please, go check it out. See the house, see the museum, buy goodies at the gift shop. Support this, fans made this movie popular, fans keep it on the air for 24 hours every year, fans need to keep this dream alive.
