So a balaclava is head/face covering?

I don't know about that ... What I've been really wanting in these winter times is a really nice "wrap-around with covering for both feet, ankles and legs as well as torso places that can get cold ...
...

Yup it's called a nice warm blanket in bed!

Or a Slanket (external link). I have one for watching movies on these cold days and they are quite snuggly.

This is the one that I was wearing, it has a fairly open face. I have others that are not as open.
There are also the ones that are just eye holes and a mouth hole. I don't like those.
Thin ones are great to wear under helmets and ski goggles, or put a toque on over top.

I had to Google "balaclava", had never heard of it before.

Looks like something I could use here in Indiana now. It was -10 F degrees here this morning when I woke up, but now it is a warm +10 F degrees! The heat wave finally got here! (maybe?)

You should get one! Sports stores will have them.

Essential wear for bank robbers.

Sure is! You can wear one to rob a bank here, walk outside and disappear into the crowd.

I thought it was a Greek/Turkish pastry made with honey and filo. Quite sticky and messy.

Baklava!!!! I miss Greek Town in Detroit. They made the best baclava ever!!! (spelling may be wrong, but I know what I'm talking about!)

That model is no use for bank robbing Mel!!

The version with eyeholes only is much preferred.

It use to be Halsted Street in Chicago. That place was awesome. Lots of restaurants, bars, clubs, one of the best Greek bakeries I've ever visited, grocery stores, etc. At night it was a real party atmosphere but unfortunately most of the business have left leaving just a few restaurants.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I have never been a downtown Chicago fan. Been lost in parts I never wanted to be more then once.

The Downtown area is fine but the nearby neighborhoods can be adventurous. The near west side is a bit dicey and definitely stay out of the Austin, Englewood, Garfield Park, Lawndale and Humboldt Park areas. Navigating Chicago is definitely not for rookies. I lived in the Humboldt Park area until second grade just at the time the neighborhood was changing. We moved out when the landlady a couple doors down was stabbed and her apartment building burned down.
