Another Friday, same verse

There was another march yesterday and  they were a little more hostile than the last group. The protestors were bussed in from Oakland and It was called the ‘Fuck the Police’ march, which sort of tells you the mindset that created it.  Lots of places boarded up early fearing the violence the organizers had promised.  That including the post office and all of the Lincoln Cener complex, which is where we were headed for dinner.  Then there was a counter march of peaceful protesters and that one was fine  The other was a mess and seven people got arrested in the end.

We ended up at The Kitchen at Stonebriar again and as glorious as it had been two weeks early, this meal was disappointing.  Suzanne ordered medium rare lamb chops, as did I.  Mine came out perfectly, hers were very well done.  Both TBG and Barb ordered their steak medium raw and both came out very well done.  Suzanne ordered asparagus and got mushrooms and we never got our wine.  The server apologized and explained that they were short-handed and busier than they’d ever been (I think because they were out of the strike zone and were open).  They ended up comping our entire meal and remade both Barb’s and Suzanne’s entrees for them.  It wasn’t the evening we had envisioned, but it was interesting.

Lots of places were still boarded up this morning and we were shocked to see that sevearl stores were gone with 'for lease' signs on their doors.  A sad sign of the times, I fear.
