    Thanks guys~
    Well, I definitely spend hours there, mostly waiting on tables :razz:
    It's also where I get my mail. Lots of admirers when my vinyl lovelies come in, but no converts yet!

    Huh, well shucks, I had no idea. Seems like a great place to work anyways. My understanding of the service industry in the US is that it leaves a lot to be desired, so it is always nice if you can work somewhere where the environment is at least good. You've sure won me over if I ever pass through the area.

    Ha, reminds me of the taqueria that we used to refer to as the office. Rare was the week that we weren't there multiple times. Hundreds of meals, thousands of cups of coffee!

    Never had to be there on the clock, though... although I've spent uncountable days in the employ of various restaurants. I miss it, actually. My feet, however, do not.

    Indeed, it's a wonderful place to eat & hang, and work! Richmond has a great food, art and music community. It's what's kept me here all these years. Holler if you come through! Mi casa es su casa!

    Might as well keep the derail going on for a little while longer - here's my old spot:

    Perfection for nickles! I wish I'd thought to bring my plastic friends with me when I was a regular.

    If ever I'm able to get my fat ass out of Michigan again, your casa is on the shortlist! VAFTW.

    ^ The natural barrel dill pickles are so good I want to cry. The green micros are pretty tasty, too.

    Hmmm, lookin' delicious there D, on both toy and food accounts. :)

    Incidentally, while I am reminded of it, if available, folks (near or north of the border) should check out French's ketchup *or catsup, if you insist. They recently took over the old Heinz factory and are one of the few makers offering a naturally sweetened recipe using local Leamington tomatoes. Dammit! now I am hungry and homesick. Wah-waaaah :`|

    ^ Perfectly fried onions. They were like candy. Mmmmmmm.

    The salad was chock full of house-made bacon. You would have loved it, Good Friday notwithstanding.

    So many awesome diners and greasy spoons, truly, one of the things I am most envious of in the US.

    Great tin litho dino David. Always a pleasure to see some of your collection outside of the 'norm.'
