Didja get out today Midtown? I know I did.
My day started with a run in Cooper Young. Good run this morning. Couch to 5K works people. Give it a try. After the run, it was time for breakfast. How about some bacon and eggs? Love me the bacon and eggs on a Sunday morning. (Run + Bacon and Eggs = Null)
“Let’s head downtown for a walk.” We began our walk on S. Main. Although the sky was overcast, we walked up and down S. Main. We did see this on a building:

Walk like an Egyptian. Walking back to the car, we decided to stop in at Double J Smokehouse for lunch. I ordered the wings,

my wife ordered the steak salad.

My wife thought the steak salad was below average tasting. How about more flavor in that steak? My wings were tangy and okay tasting. Service? I had to ask for sweetener twice. The table next to us had to ask for syrup twice. A third table waited 10 minutes for their drinks, gave up, and walked out. If you don’t want to work on Sunday, DON’T WORK. #waitressdoesntwanttobehere. My resolution for 2013? I subtract $1 from the tip if the waitress doesn’t check on me. I subtract $1 from the tip if the waitress doesn’t refill my tea. If you do not care about my dining experience, I don’t care about your tip.
