Soooo.... I figured the Brew Pub would be open; I mean, how could they not...?
Pretty easily, as it turned out. But no matter; intrepid scouts quickly located those few places that were open (Brugge among them) and 'twas determined that Canal Bistro, right next to the turtle-threatening sculpture, would be our spot.
And a good thing it was; there's nothing like saganaki, battered and deep-fried calimari, gyros, lamburgers (!) and/or a good Greek salad to pep up a chilly, rainy day -- nothing, that is, except good company: ...Not my day for photography. But clockwise from lower left, we have Brigid, The Jack, Joanna, Old Grouch, Dave (Scout 26 of The Cancer Ward -- his very first Indy BlogMeet), Nathan, an empty seat (cos that's mine) and Tamara K!
The food was great and there was even a little excitement outside, but that I will have to let others tell and/or leave for another time, as I'm back to the eye-doctor, to see if they'll maybe sell me some contacts.
Should I admit to seeing things like this? I'd always wondered where they came from....
