Kevin and Lisa go to White Castle

Lisa and I headed out for dinner. My first idea was to go to BD's Mongolian BBQ, where we've eaten before. It's okay, although I don't like their pre-mixed sauces so much. We tried to warn them to keep my food away from Lisa's, as I have cajun spice and hot pepper on mine, and her's is bland, bland, bland. They not only mixed them together, but they made fun of Lisa when she complained. We were so angry that we walked out on them and won't return, and we told them why at the front desk before leaving. Don't abuse your customers.

But that did make us now cold, hungry, and angry. The Chipotle would have been okay, but it's a lunch-only place. We walked up to the Short North district, where there were many restaurants, none of which seemed to really catch our eye very much. One would have been okay, but was much too noisy. After walking for quite a ways, we came to a White Castle, and we threw up our hands in desperation and went in for burgers. By the way, that was the first time I have ever had a White Castle burger -- they don't have them on the West Coast.

We came back down the other side of the street, whereupon (of course) we found several places that, had we walked that way initially, would have caught us for dinner. Oh, well.

Then we went back to the hotel and thawed out with a dessert reception for those of us who came in a day early. Although it's only 8 PM subjective time, I'm running on way too little sleep these past few days and we're calling it a night soon.
