|Bill with the Town Lech|
For us down here in Lower Slower (Sussex County, Delaware), a "night on the town" could mean one of two things:
- An evening in Rehoboth Beach (or Lewes)
- An evening in Milton.
Since this is the summer season and the throngs of visitors have descended on the Rehoboth Beach area like a biblical plague of locusts, Bill and opted to go to the newest restaurant in Milton. I am not naming the restaurant because I would like to go back there and I don't want them to find this posting about our experience last night.
Long story short, bad experience.
Three times this week I wanted to visit this restaurant which makes a falafel sandwich that I find very tasty, if expensive. The only restaurant that knows how to make a veggie staple like a falafel by the way. For contrast when I visited Pat in Toronto there seemed to be an Ali Baba's
on every other street corner selling fabulous falafel sandwiches for half the price ($5.00 versus $9.95 which I pay for in the Milton restaurant). And every Tuesday Ali Baba's has a two for one sale. Try finding a deal like that in resort expensive Lower Slower.
Oh yes, I know somebody has to pay those high rental fees.
Anyway, back to the program in progress.
Tuesday I attempted to go to this restaurant. The town of Milton as packed. Turns out it was "Truckin Tuesday."
Truckin' Tuesday rolls food trucks into Milton
Truckin' Tuesday will be held in Milton every second and fourth Tuesday this summer

Here we go again folks. Two Old Grumps,
this scene just isn't for us. While I love Milton and think it is a lovely, quaint town and definitely way better than Rehoboth Beach and all that craziness, Bill and I just don't do these crowds. At least the parking is free, if you can find it.
I pulled the car in half-assed and let Bill finish the parking. Yes, I'm ashamed. I should learn someday to parallel park just like I should learn to change a flat tire (that's why I have AAA by the way).
|Bill likes dairy in his smoothies like a milkshake, he said this was like water ice|
and when he found out it costs $5.00 later he hated even more). The girl's father was seated nearby keeping an eye on Bill. Thus the whole "dining experience" was uncomfortable. Oh Bill.
We're crab caked out.
