    just think

    Just think how nice it would be if you like that type of food but she went because the husband does but she finds out that she could order from the red lobster.

    It’s gonna be miserable

    I love the food from both of these restaurants, but I have a feeling they are just going to be ~ridiculously~ (and miserably) packed ALL the time.

    So I’ll probably just keep going to Mezalluna’s for Italian and JT’s for Seafood (my personal favorites).

    I do crave those Olive Garden breadsticks though…

    Jan 24 – I was just informed by a reader that stopped by Olive Garden/Red Lobster yesterday that hiring was not going to begin today (the 24th). I don’t have an updated schedule.
