The Summit

As a general rule, I find shopping in mass-chain retail outlets to be really lame. It reminds me of that old episode of South Park when the adults go to Mr. Mackie's house and he's playing that Cher "Believe" album. I got the humor in that and have laughed about it for years. By the time anything reaches the Mr. Mackie's of the world, it's on a downward spiral.

And this, of course, is how I feel about mainstream retail. Pottery Barn? Williams Sonoma? Yeah right. Give me a little rummage shop in Gordo, Alabama (population 1400 with at least 200 pit bulls and coon hounds thrown in the mix), or for better kitchen supplies, I like Sur La Table.

However, there is one little retail establishment that your dawg loves. And he loves it unapologetically. And that, my friends, is Urban Outfitters.

And if you think I'm not going to the newly-opened UO in Birmingham this Sunday at The Summit, you're wrong.

Oh. Robby. Urban Outfitters is so wrong.
