This weekend's weather was so lovely; just perfect for walking Pearl Street. So, after hearing Fr. Terry's talk on Merton's Palace of Nowhere, and doing a bit of Centering Prayer, Dear Husband and I went walking.
We decided on BJs for lunch and first off, ordered coffee. It was your standard restaurant-fare coffee in a standard cup. Small and thick-walled, not much coffee in it. When we asked for refills, the waiter told us that he would have to charge us for another cup. WHAT?! No free refills? I'm glad he told us as we might have ended up with a huge bill just for the coffee. Folks, this was NOT good coffeehouse type coffee. This was the kind you'd get at a chain breakfast place. $2.00 for a little cup. And NO refills. I think we'll scratch this place off our list.
