Did You Know Tuesday

Did you know that there are no Red Lobster restaurants in Maine? They closed the only two back in 1998.


There are a couple of reasons they couldn't survive in Maine. Number one is the fact that we already know how to cook seafood up here and the small, independent local seafood restaurants give a far better meal than anything whipped up in a chain store. (That would be like putting a nasty Olive Garden in the middle of a major city with a large Italian population like Philadelphia....oh wait, they did, and amazingly enough tourists with no taste for REAL Italian food flock to it instead of seeking out the far superior local Italian eateries.) Thankfully, tourists to Maine knew where the best seafood could be found.

Second, they lost business when they refused to change their waitress uniforms to compete with those worn by servers in Maine's seafood restaurants. I know who I want bringing me a steamed crustracean with a side of hot buns.

"Would you like a pinch of buttah with your meal, sir? Or just the pinch?"

Third, and most important: they don't even know how to spell Lobstah.

Now we're talking. Nice waitress uniform!

Also - I always thought people who frequented Applebee's or TGI Fridays or Olive Garden were weird. There are plenty of far better restaurants in most major cities and they charge about the same for a far superior experience.

I never seem to find these waitresses. All the best to you this Christmas my friend. All the best in the New Year as well....
