School is out for Thanksgiving all week, so today was a relatively loose start on some projects. We tried the newly remodeled Big Red for lunch, and though the burger was pretty good, the portion of fries was small, and it took just over an hour to get our food. The place was busy, but that didn’t seem to have an effect on the kitchen. Watching the rate at which food was produced from behind the window, I can only assume they were cooking everything on a single George Foreman Grill. The menu is pretty tiny, so the mind reels at what could have taken so long. We witnessed at least one 2-top walk out, presumably because they were already seated when we got there, and our 4-top got our food first. I felt like our server did a fair job though. It truly felt like it was 100% on the kitchen being slow, and I don’t understand how it could have taken so long to smash a couple burger patties onto a grill.
After lunch, Ryan and I hung some new WAPs at the junior high, and then they let us out an hour early. I came home to the roofers on my house and a giant dumpster in my driveway, so I had to park next door. I’m not stoked to get into a cold car in the morning, but c’est la vie. Once I got inside, I spent the rest of the evening fighting Cinavia on my HTPC so I could enjoy The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
