Last night blog-Stedman and I went to one of our favorite restaurants fleeing the chaos that was at our house. We love Taco Diner. The food is good and a bit different from the norm. The ambiance is a casually fantastic diner style with a few nice pieces of art (they also have one of the coolest public restrooms if you are interested). But we go for the entertainment. Taco Diner is situated directly across from Trulucks (snooty, high-priced restaurant with marginal food) and their valet parking spaces. The Truluck’s valet parking staff have an elaborate system of parking all the crappy cars behind the restaurant and juggling the nice cars in the 3 spaces in front. Then there is the rare use of the 4th spot…that is a special deal only reserved for the unfortunate dilemma when there are already 3 REALLY nice cars and a Lamborghini drives up…what to do? Whew, the 4th spot. So here is a Truluck’s dilemma…the 3 front spaces are filled with a yellow Hummer, a black, shiny Lexus and a silver Maserati. Then a Bentley drives up…what car will be shunned to the back lot or will the 4th space be used? This is so easy…The Lexus will be bumped without doubt. Last night was a really, really bad night at Trulucks which made it even more entertaining. When we arrived they actually had a Ford parked out front which was really bringing the whole establishment down…they were thanking their lucky stars when a generic Mercedes drove in. Poor Trulucks. But I guarantee you that if you had walked in to request a table in their empty restaurant you would have been seated in the bar for 30 minutes just because they are Trulucks and just because they think they can…
