My friend Nancy and I drove into the Big City to go to a Christmas Art Fair. It was held in one of those marvelous old buildings that the city wisely kept and renovated into areas for small businesses. The show took up the main floor and part of the third. After going through that we stopped off at a hole-in-the-wall place we used to frequent for lunch when we worked downtown. Back then, a group of us would just walk in, select a table, immediately order a burger and half order of fries. Since those days the place received an award (or two) for serving the best hamburgers in town and the president has even stopped in for one. So today we stood in line until we could be seated and then waited awhile longer for the waitress to stop by. Was worth it though - still the best burgers in town. We bypassed our planned visit to the Swedish Institute since Nancy felt like she was coming down w/ a cold. Nice to visit the Big City - nice to come back home.
