20. Sometimes you just gotta try something different
I don't plan on making a habit of it but I'm not averse to experimenting with it occasionally.

16. Was the comfort food TOO comfortable?
Do they still sell Sky Bars?

Did you know that's the only restaurant whose name most aptly describes the people that eat there?

19. Hectors aptly described the people who ate there
The patrons were all Greek heroic figures, or drunk college students from Chapel Hill
Same difference.

I didn't notice if they still sold Sky Bar or not

24. OOH OOH I'm claiming my points
David Mamet! Sexual Perversity in Chicago! "So...was she a pro?" "At this point, we don't know."

(Was Joan in a college production of the play and did my thesis on Mamet! :hi: )

32. They're all corporate-owned, not franchised, so they are reliable
Edited on Tue Jul-17-07 07:40 PM by mcscajun
wherever you go; a nice comfortable place to stop on a long car trip. Most have signs visible from the Interstate, and pretty easy on and off those routes.

Not great food, but good and enough.

Based in Tennesse, they're on most of the major interstates on the East Coast (and elsewhere), and there are loads of 'em in PA.

36. I hate to sound like a gift-snob but it didn't do much for me
I prefer genuine oddities, like this spiffy Camel ad that I found at a Seattle poster shop:
