It's the rainy season in South Florida. Problem is, although rain has been near us, we have missed most of it. But, this morning, Sunday, it is cloudy and misty, which makes me moody, in a good way.
Sunday Brunch at our usual place (we are big on usual places) brought news that our absolute favorite, long-time server is leaving. We are pleased for her, but not for us. Change is good, right? Sure, but not only are we losing this ray of Sunday morning sunshine, the place has a new head chef and our food was seriously lacking for the first time.
See how it works-literal rain was sent-then figurative rain. There was one ray of sunshine still streaming in...the Mimosas and Bellinis were delicious, and 99 cents.
When things change at a favorite haunt, we always take it as a sign it is time to move on. Seeking new
haunts can be a challenge, fraught with danger (not really, but I love to be dramatic).
The thing is, good food, service, location and prices are not so easy to discover. But, searching can be fun.
The operative word here is...can.
School starts in Palm Beach County on August 15th-tomorrow. It is HOT. Very. Every year I harp on the same old thing. What is wrong with starting the day after Labor Day, like back in my day?
Well, I pity the kids. But, the parents are probably celebrating.
Selfish me, I am, too. I mean, come ON, let's be honest here. When the kids file back into those sacred halls of learning, filing into the stores of retail gets a little bit more peaceful.
