Yesterday Phil started his winter term class and today I went off to school for my class on the Cold War...
I am so not going to recite all I learned today but I will say that the class seems to be very interesting and we have a lot to cover in just eight classes of 80 minutes length.
And after class I picked up Phil and we headed out to lunch. We tried a new place today and we had a winner! The Central Cafe in the Old Manatee section of town in a brick building that has a small backyard under a pergola- so when the weather is warmer than it was today you can sit outdoors-
cute place- eclectically decorated-
nice service and amenable chefs (food prepared the way you want it) - we had two soups - tomato blue and cream of mushroom - nice and hot on a chilly day...it is winter here after all- then we each had the bacon and blue burgers which were cooked to the temperature of choice... served with excellent fries and good pickles and red ripe tomatoes...
I didn't take pictures so I pulled these from the yelp website - credit where due- Yelpers helped me!
burger and in the house made square bun- but our tomatoes were riper!
tomato blue soup- very nice and served hot!
a place to return to for sure!
On Friday we have another new place to try before the Spuyten Duyvil concert at Fogartyville. So I will keep you posted. And yes I know I promised to get us to Cienfuegos - but it will be tomorrow because I am done for the day - my cat is nudging me to give her some attention!
