It's Sad How a Bad Meal Can Ruin an Otherwise Great Day

This afternoon Mrs. Ansky, Lil Ansky, and I had tickets to see Mary Poppins at the New Amsterdam Theatre. The show itself was definitely Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The one negative had to with the seating. Seriously, who designs these theatres? It was worse than flying coach.

After the show, we headed back home for dinner. We don't eat out much so we decided to try a new kosher place in my town. Mrs. Ansky doesn't want me embaras anyone so I'll rant in general terms. We had to wait over an hour for our order to be completed. When we finally got our food, it really wasn't that impressive. We've had bad experiences before but the owners made up for by comping us desserts or by passing around finger foods while we waited. Nothing here. Just a lot of frustration. It bothers to me no end that owners of kosher restaurants feel like they can get away with bad service just because they are offering another kosher dining option in the community. This particular establishment just lost a customer.
