Did that once when I was dating a girl in DTW.

CA border patrol agent was not amused one iota.
FWIW, I've heard that they're extremely tough at that border crossing.

but the food is frikking awesome
I haven't had food from them in a number of years. I guess it's gotten a lot better since then.
(not that it was bad, but I wouldn't have called it "frikking awesome.")

Is it my imagination or are there more redheads by Jewish people (especially chassidim) than by non Jewish people?
Are chassidim Irish?

I'm getting a feeling of deja vu.

Is Does Basil kosher have a Kashrus certificate (other than the owner's certification) again?

are they kosher now ?

It's not only USPS that messes up. (although they do seem to do it more often.)

I generally do have a roll of paper towels by the sink as well, but for Shabbos I'm usually not interested in dealing with precut...

Use paper towels. Do you really want to use a towel 20 other people used?
Personally I put a stack of hand towels by the sink, but yeah, that works and plenty of people do that.

Now you're talking about a major pet peeve of mine. When there aren't towels ready within reach of a sink (especially one that's specifically intended for washing hands). What's wrong with people?
This is something I've been meaning to post here for ages. Although I would add to that, "When there aren't any dry towels ready within reach of a sink."

It drives my crazy when I go somewhere for a meal and there are like 20 people washing and there's only one or two little towels by the washing sink.

Let me phrase it differently. If I told you that Marin County has the highest percentage of Jews of any US county not on the east coast, you'd say 'yeah that makes sense'?
I don't know.
Presenting it in that way, as a standalone fact, is very different than what we're dealing with here. My initial reaction might be surprise but thinking about it a bit it makes perfect sense.

Here by looking at map and seeing the whole picture it all makes sense right away.
