Nice lunch preparatory to a horrible rest of the day.
Samos and I were excited. We were about to have an adventure! (This will give you an idea of the level of adventure in my usually ever so dull life!) He had gotten emails offering coupons to vegetarian – and I suppose, other – restaurants in the area. One had to pay on line in advance, print the coupon, and then produce it at the eatery and then, supposedly, get a great bargain. Scary! What if the printer suddenly is on the blink? I suppose you only get one chance. My printer way too often has its own little issues - meaning it won't issue what I want it to. In this case, the coupon cost $10, for which one could get $20 worth of fine cuisine! He had never done this before, and was a little fearful that it wouldn’t work --- $10 wasted! His coupon was for the Sage Café, one of Rebecca’s favorites. It is also his favorite super sandwich place, sporting a few sit down seats, and probably lots of take-out. Well, the coupon worked nicely and our sandwiches were très yummisma, but huge. He got a New York Reuben (where else would a Reuben be from?) and I had a Venice Beach. I’m not sure exactly where Venice Beach is, but not, in this case, in Italy. I think it has the aroma of muscle men showing off, and muscle cars in which they get there to show off. In any case, its eponymous sandwich had tempeh bacon, tomato, and avocado – all muscle building materials. This was a fun way to spend a few hours before a truly horrible evening at work. (This being an upbeat blog, I won’t bore you with the details.)
