    Greaser's Delight - Picnics at Allen's

    Seating prospects at the lunch spot we had just entered didn't look good. I suggested we leave and eat somewhere else, though admittedly I was more put off by a sign on the window reading Gourmet Sandwiches than at having to wait for a table (I dis...

    Charming by Nature - Pirates Bar & Grill
