IF THEY LET ME LEAVE

I'LL STOP BLOGGING

Seriously.

Went to the Hard Grove for the first time since the smoking ban took effect, sparked by Ed Cunard's recent visit. I couldn't believe it had been that long.

Well, shit done change. Food is still great. They still make the best cup of coffee in all the land. But the giant palm centerpieces were gone. The window decorations were gone. Our utencils came in a wicker basket loaded with stones instead of a plastic Campbell's soup jar. Our syrup came in a white carafe with a cork instead of an Aunt Jamima bottle. Our plates matched (plain white). Our utensils matched. Our mugs, containing the best bustello in in all the land weren't eight-inch-high, thick ceramic cauldrons. They were kinda big white cups.

It was all rather disapointing. Sure, it was nice to have new, clean serveware, but it lacked charm in a soul-devestating way. The food can make you forget everything so long as you close your eyes, but you have to open them at some point.

Not being able to smoke really sucks too.

So sad. I'm sure I'll get used to it though.
