Restaurant Burns Down

Wow. Apparently the place where I ate lunch three days ago burned down yesterday morning.

On a slightly related note...any restaurant recommendations for Friday night in Greensboro? We're staying off of Wendover at the Hilton Garden Inn.

You can walk out into the parking lot of your hotel and throw a stone and hit about 245,237 places to eat, so you'll pretty much be able to have whatever you want.

You've got Hooter's across the street. You've got Jake's Diner around the corner. You can probably see the K&W from your hotel room. If you go south of I-40 (go to Wendover and turn right), you'll see all the big chain-type things: Cracker Barrel, Tripp's, Red Lobster, Fuddruckers, TGI Friday's, Steak-n-Shake, etc.

There's a great Japanese place nearby: Kabuto (across I-40, turn left on Stanley Road, go down the hill, it's on the left).

If you're up for a short trip away from your hotel, go downtown where there are a handful of cool places: McCoul's Tavern (Scottish pub fare), Natty Greene's (local brewery), Solaris (tapas), Cafe Europa (snobs), Undercurrent (rich snobs), Acropolis (Greek). I really like McCoul's. Downtown is about a 10 minute drive from your hotel.

I think it's my favorite of the many "cook your food in front of you" Japanese places around.

I'm not saying anything.

You know, considering how restaurants are full of teenagers handling heated oil, it's a wonder they don't burn down more often.

Strangely enough
Our local supermarket (3km's away) burnt down on Sunday evening, 5 hours after we walked past it.

Honestly officer it wasn't us!

Re: Strangely enough
I suspect you may be correct.
