Of tables, poorly placed rabbits and disappointing food.

.

After the husband decided on leather chairs for his man cave, the focus switched to a table to put in front of them. Having just spent two exhausting days in and out of a disturbingly high number of furniture stores, I was less than enthusiastic. And when I saw what kind of tables he was considering?

.

(Tables should not have wheels!) I was even less enthusiastic.

Thinking he’d taken leave of his senses, I cried Uncle and headed for the ladies room before our two and a half hour long drive home.

And if there was ever a stranger place to decorate with rabbits? I don’t know where it would be. No one needs a fluffle of Thumpers looking over their shoulder in a bathroom stall. Talk about performance anxiety… geesh. ( And yes, a group of rabbits really is called a fluffle. Which, when you think about it… is totally spot on. )

On the way home we stopped at a restaurant we’ve always enjoyed but haven’t frequented since early 2020.

Is the beer really better there? I don’t know, but they have an extensive list to be sure. They also pour some interesting martinis …..

So naturally I indulged in two Prickly Pears. The drinks were fabulous…

But tiny.. more like wide lipped shot glasses. And for $24? I’d like to take more than 4 sips.

While the food looked wonderful, shrimp stir fry for me… Parmesan baked haddock for the husband… both were dry as a bone, overcooked and cool when they reached the table. French onion soup forgotten and delivered with the meal? That’s a big no no. By the time the husband started his fish, it was stone cold. A disappointing visit to a place we used to love.

  1. Rabbit tiles in the bathroom? Tables with wheels? Then to top it all off, the food that took a great picture, but not appetizing? I’m sorry you leather chair shopping went totally crapola. At least the drinks were good, tiny but good.

  2. At one point in my life I thought that industrial wagons made a good coffee tables as did old wire reels and stacked pallets. But now I have reverted to early Salvation Army kitsch … a flat spot for the remote and bowl of popcorn is sufficient unto the day. And in our house, it also serves as a beagle day bed …
