Last Thursday my friend Sally and I went to lunch and we are taking you with us! Of course, we had to get there first. Sally kept insisting on going a certain way, when I thought we were really lost.
We drove around this stretch Humvee limo three times and I finally captured a photo. As much as I like Sally, she proved the definition of insanity: where you do the same thing over and over, each time expecting a different outcome.
Granted, I'm the one who has NO cell phone, but I finally asked Sally if she had hers with her. When she said yes, we found the phone number and she called Mulligans and got directions. We were only about six blocks from the pub.
Obviously, it was our first time and the reason we went was because Sally had seen a good write up about the place. Sadly, the write up didn't give any directions for how to get to the place.
Although we wasted nearly an hour looking for Mulligans, we were definitely there before closing time (a bit of humor to lighten the tale).
Although it was really dark inside, I still captured this sculpture of Marilyn Monroe. I took several photos and every one of them had these circles. I wasn't sure if it was my camera or the lighting in the pub. Thankfully, those circles didn't appear again.
Sally was so frustrated after being lost for so long, she ordered a mixed drink. I think it was a whiskey sour, but I could be wrong, since I'm not really a drinker. She had it nearly gone by the time
I had photographed the menu.
Here she is on her second mixed drink. She ordered it when we ordered our sandwiches. I asked her if she thought she would be sober enough to drive, since she was downing these like she normally downs water. Needless to say, my drink of choice was water. I thought I might have to be the designated driver before the day was over.
Before our meals came, I got photos of the art over the table where we were seated,
as well as the murals
across the room. I didn't get any photos of our sandwiches, though. Sally had an Italian sub with potato chips and I had a veggie wrap with a side of spicy french fries that came with the most awesome basil pesto for dipping.
Sally fell in love with her sandwich and even commented on how good her potato chips tasted. I think a lot of that had to do with the two mixed drinks she had. My wrap was tough, but the fries and pesto were out of this world. Other than that, I wasn't terribly impressed with the place, except for the service, which was quite good. Our meals were each $8.00 without tax and tip. I have no idea how much Sally paid for her two drinks, but we each left a two dollar tip.
It's now time to share your T tale for the week. It can be about anything drink related, from your best tea pot to your favorite plastic mug or fancy cup and saucer. It could be art that is drink related, or photos that you have taken while out and about. It might be of your garden, your favorite pet, a scrapbook page, or something you found on the internet. The choice is yours, as long as you can relate it in some way to a drink. And obviously, it doesn't have to be taken on Tuesday, but you must link it below, so Bleubeard, the loyal T crowd, and I can come visit.
