Does your town have one of those restaurants that no matter what kind of eatery is there, just never seem to make it? This place is just around the corner from my office and in ten years, it’s been at least five different restaurants. And it’s been a vacant building more often than it’s been anything else.
The most recent iteration was called “Kiss My Grits” because nothing says “keeping up with modern food trends” mor than using the catch-phrase of a TV show from the 1970s. It was terrible. The restaurant, I mean. (Also, the TV show. But that’s neither here nor there.)
But something’s happening over there – the other week all the booths and furniture were piled up out in the parking lot.
I’ll let you know when the next place goes under…
Jamaica: not just a country!
Catholic Churches around here (maybe other places, too? Help me out, reader(s)!) host these fundraising events. There’s usually food and contests and music. By now, you’ve missed this one in Lorenzo, but you can mark your calendar for next year.
PS – It’s pronounced as a Spanish word, with an “h” sound standing in for the “j” and the accent on the first syllable.
