Dave and I went to dinner on Thursday at the Electric Diner, a newly reopened restaurant next to our favorite movie theater, the Electric Cinema. (That's the theater where one can rent a bed and lie down to watch the movie -- which I haven't done and probably never will, because it still seems a bit bizarre to me.) We've been meaning to go to the restaurant for ages, but both it and the cinema were closed for many months after a restaurant fire in 2012, so that delayed us. Now they're both doing a booming business. On Thursday we had a stylishly severe-looking waitress with a black bob and very red lipstick, who delivered to me a first-rate beef rib sandwich and a crunchy vegetable salad. We were very happy and we intend to go back.
(I couldn't even eat the whole sandwich -- I ate the second half last night for dinner.)
It's very rainy and foggy this morning, and from what I hear that's pretty much what the weekend is going to look like. I hope I get the opportunity for some photos, but we'll see. If not, I have "The Goldfinch" to keep me company!
