The Spurs did not win either game in Miami. That was disappointing but it was a fantastic series and we had a great time watching the games, commenting on Facebook and trading barbs with my nephew Dan, a disgusting Heat fan.
I'll refer you to an older post from the old blog to refresh your memory, but they are just as good now as ever.
Speaking of eating, the other day we took vehicles to Lytle Oil Exchange to get some oil exchanged. We thought it would be a good time to grab a bite and one of the ladies suggested a place across the street called Pirates Cove. The small town of Lytle's High School football team mascot is The Pirate, so this restaurant sort of picks up on the theme.
As we waited for our breakfast, we noticed some of the signs on the walls - they have wings and catfish and other good things. We really started contemplating return visits for lunch or dinner.
All in all, we all felt like this was a place we'd certainly like to try again, if not for breakfast, at least for lunch. And then we got the bill. $30 (before tip). This same exact meal at La Pasidita is probably $13 - $15 max. In retrospect, it was not the food price that got us, it was the extras. Example: Lemonade is $3.00 each. Add a to-go cup and that is another 25 cents a pop. The cheese for my son's plate and for mine is another .40 each and of course, Eva's avocado was probably at least a buck.
Let's not freak out over $30 for three people to eat, but why would I go back when I can get the same thing but better for half the price? And then when we went back to pick up the cars at the oil place, one of the ladies gave us an earful about Pirates Cove. I shan't bother to share the details of that private conversation, but yea, we'll just stick with some of our regular places.
I'm off to cut more wood for Adirondack chairs #3 and possibly #4 today. Pictures to follow!
