Yesterday was my birthday.
Bob asked where I would like to go for dinner, to celebrate.
As usual I named my favorite, locally owned spot
for awesome Grouper and fantastic Shrimp.
This is a local bar and restaurant that is off the beaten path.
Just before you reach Wormsloe Plantation and Isle Of Hope.
It is crowded every night of the week as many of the neighbors stop off at the bar after work.
Their menu and execution rivals and exceeds
We had a leisurely day. We rode around the island in the golf cart, observed the turtles sunning by the lagoons, the egrets standing motionless and a Great Blue Heron poking around for lunch. (I didn't take my camera, it was our time)
About five-thirty we left for dinner. You have about a fifteen minute window of time to find a parking spot
and a table.
We had to make an emergency stop at the Kroger pharmacy for Coreg (I had let my self run out). Well, everyone and his brother had let their meds run out also. The line backed up into
the cleaning supply aisle. What a bummer!
My thoughts were here!
When we got to the restaurant the parking lot was overflowing. The only parking was across and down the street. That meant people were waiting for a table. We missed
our fifteen minute window while I was lollygagging
or just gagging in the cleaning aisle.
What to do?
Bob was NOT about to make the decision. I suggested that neither of us felt like walking or waiting.
What to do?
It was up to me to come up with a decision!
YUP! That's where I chose to go!
You have to know that growing up in the south we are all too familiar with Krystal burgers. We were Krystal fans when they were 5₵ each. We had been seeing their commercials on tv recently and both of us would say, "Boy, a few Krystals would taste good."
|Do not attempt to count the number eaten. If you guess correctly, I will lie, lie, lie!|
Well, they did taste sooooo good! No sides, that is sacrilege. Besides, saves more room for those tasty little burgers. Of course there was homemade iced tea.
Now's hows that for a cheap date?
The Driftaway Cafe, you say?
Oh, that's this weekend...early!
I was not paid for this testimonial. I stole the pictures off their website here. If, after reading my comments, they wish me to remove the pictures, I will oblige.
Blessings for a wonderful week.
