On Monday, I met a college friend, Chip, for lunch. He lives in Arizona now, but was back east visiting his parents ("Why is everyone complaining about the weather? This is nothing!"). We were supposed to meet at Pistachio Bar & Grille in Allentown at 11:30. I got there a few minutes late, but knowing Chip, figured I'd be waiting a while. So I hung outside waiting for him to show up. Long story short, after a half-hour of bad cell phone connections, I figured out that he was sitting inside waiting for me. Jeez. Decent lunch there--he got some sort of chicken sandwich. I got a Cuban Pressed Sandwich. Fairly tasty. A good place for a casual meal. They have good hummus for an appetizer.
We walked around our alma mater, Muhlenberg, to see what's changed. A lot has. Someone's giving to them--they're not doing all that renovation on my $25 a year!
Boy, the fields must be celebrating with the rain we've been getting. Pretty humid for us, but for the veggies, it's great.
Went to the Caboose Grille in Souderton yesterday with MB & Jake for lunch. The menu was pretty nice--sandwiches, wraps, salads & burgers. The food was fine--nothing exceptional, but good. MB got a buffalo burger. I got a special--turkey, sun-dried tomato, fresh mozzarella on a rosemary foccacia. Jake got a burger & fries--nice size for a children's portion. The restaurant is housed in an old train station and that gives a neat feel to the place. It's one of those places that's good, but if they did a few little things food-wise, it would be very good.
