Yesterday afternoon/evening was very pleasant. Went to a joint on our service road...City Diner...
http://www.citydiner.biz/index.html (MAYBE 1/2 mile from here). Had a few cold beers. Dom had a monster breakfast, and I had a club sandwich. Very pleasant. I have no doubt that I'll often stop there on the way home from Tulane, order a sandwich to go, and sip on a beer while I'm waiting.
Met a few of the powers-that-be there. Very pleasant folks. One gal recognized me from the pic I use on a local food forum. Tickled me!
As we were on our way out, I asked the manager/owner ??? about the bar right around the corner... the Sanctuary. We thought we'd pop in for a quick beer before rushing home to Big Brother.
Glad that I asked. Jason told us that it was a lesbian bar, and they wouldn't have even allowed Dom in the door. There was a strip place next door, but Dom wanted no part of that, either.
Had a 10:30 appointment for Dom's infusion this morning.... we were outta there in an hour. Stopped at "my" new Rouses and did some shopping. Loved the joint. Beer prices were great...now I need to find a discount cigarette shop.... there's loads of 'em in our old area....haven't seen anything here yet.
Came home, unpacked groceries, then I did some laps in the pool. Other than that, nothing. Had a tuna-melt for dinner, and hitting the sack early. Neither of us have slept much, and we have to be back at Tulane for 8am.
