Thursday's Things In A Row was started by Pat and it was so fun to see what she came up with, I took the invitation and joined her. Before long, I started to see rows in places that I had never paid attention to previously!
Today's things in a row are from the places Gman and I went to eat for his birthday.
These chairs beckon on the porch of Marlene's Restaurant. You can go in to eat from a menu or just get some ice cream and enjoy some time lounging on the porch. Gman says they have the BEST burgers in the area! I always enjoy Marlene's and there is even a museum!
Notice the Thermometer. And this is in the shade!
When we came back out, it was 100 humid degrees! In the shade...
That evening Gman chose Mexican. This is Ruiz Castillo. Look at the arches, lights and just in case you can also check out the stripes on the side of Jr. :)
Gman enjoyed his fare. I thought that the spices used were not to my liking. It seemed rather bland to me and I could have sworn I tasted basil in the beans along with some cilantro and chili powder. It was a rather strange combo. Perhaps I should have asked for some habanero sauce or something. I tend to gravitate to the more spicy fare of the Southwest Mexican food we enjoyed when we lived in New Mexico. We did have good service.
While there, a couple of men came in with a folder--apparently they were doing business of some sort. The first man ordered his meal and asked that they leave off the pico. Man 2 asked what pico was. Man 1--well it is kind of like this salsa here but bigger pieces and onion right? (to the waitress who I am not sure was totally fluent in English and when he asked again, she said, oh sure, right). Man 2--I'll have the fried chicken. Just cracked me up.
When we were seated I couldn't resist this shot of the chairs and silverware lined up just perfectly.
Then, a young man was seated there with his family. Suddenly he bumped his grandpa and said, "Wow! That is exactly identical to my other one, but different!" LOL
Gman enjoyed his lunch and dinner and his birthday.
Be sure to head over to Pat's to check out all othe other rows...
