I’m beginning to understand why people eat at chain restaurants. Those places have regular hours and you always know what you’re getting. Seems like the local, hole-in-the-wall places that I prefer, tend to do their own thing. Remember how we were planning to go out for lunch at our favorite Chinese restaurant, a small locally owned, out of the way place? We got there to find they had changed their Saturday hours and no longer did lunch, but rather opened for dinner at 4:30. This was the second time we had tried to eat there on a Saturday. Three weeks ago, after that WordPress Meet-up, we drove across town for a late lunch/early dinner only to find they had closed at 2:30 and would reopen at 4:30. We figured today to be early enough for lunch at 11:45. Hah! Fooled again.
So, I am thinking that perhaps God is trying to tell me something what with this happening 2 times. Fortunately, there is a really good barbecue stand across the street from the Chinese restaurant, and he makes the best pulled pork sandwiches. Not really good for us, but tasty. We drove over, picked up the sandwiches, and came home to eat them as the only place the barbecue stand has for eating is outside, and it is still blustery here.
I’m guessing that I may have to find another Chinese restaurant. We eat out so seldom, and to have this happen twice, and to have driven all the way across town twice, I just don’t think I want to try again. Maybe Panda Express will have to do!
