When I was in college in the late 90s, I worked for Follett in the Smith College bookstore. Down the street was a little convenience store on Green St. that was Follett-affiliated. For a big Coca-Cola push, it had a big promo Surge bottle that was also a cooler. You could fill it up with ice (and Surge) and it had a little drain at the bottom of it. Fancy.

So it was selling Surge in this thing for awhile, but because of lack of space, they had to get rid of it. I thought it'd be a funny thing, so I wound up getting it for one of my Halloween parties at my old house on Park Hill. I filled it up with snow and we put cans of soda in it. Like all ridiculous college-age decisions, I kept it around as part of my furniture. When I moved out of my parents house, I was just going to get rid of it, but my friend Jamie decided he'd like it for his apartment. I think he just put all his recyclable cans and bottles in it.

When Jamie got sick of it, he put it out by the dumpster. We actually made a $1 bet about it. I bet that no one would take it, and Jamie bet that someone would.

Jamie wound up winning that $1 within about an hour if I remember correctly. This was in 1999. 

Years later (2010), we tagged along as Heather was house hunting in Easthampton. The house wasn't what she was looking for, and the yard was just full of random stuff. In one corner of the yard, there was a little treefort/treehouse looking thing, so we decided to check out what was inside. Lo and behold, we found THE SURGE BOTTLE. It had been over a decade since we'd seen it last.

I took a picture with my cellphone. 

Yes, it's absolutely the same one.

The bread they use for their subs is amazing. A real treat for us out of towners. Looks like just your typical pizza joint from the outside, but the food is really great!

Though I was disappointed to find out that Condor Club membership requires a 8-25 month approval process, this looks like a fine establishment. I could envision myself spending much time here if I were a member. The curly fries are to die for!
