This is a chapter devoted to the Wool Grower's Inn, Los Banos, CA. David had introduced Anne to the Basque restaurant in Fresno so this one was a natural.
There are several tables the length of the room, covered in red and white checked tablecloths. You are seated next to many others, all enjoying the same family stlye dinner in a very happily noisy atmosphere. The dinner choices are listed off to you verbally, usually six to eight entrees, generally including pork chops, steak, chicken.
Then they start bringing the other food.
Wine, salad with a dressing to die for, Potato salad, baked beans, bread, vegetables. You can pace yourself as best you can, but each dish is hard to resist, let alone stop eating.
Then, they bring your meat. Dessert? Who are you kidding?
You meet the most delightful peolpe there, too~
(Jena's notes on her second visit was, "-1: No cute boys.")
