May 4 – Penguins

Right around the corner from our hotel is the Penguin Bar. We knew this before we came. Brandon made reservations and tonight was Penguin Bar night.

I’m not sure what exactly I was expecting, but it wasn’t really what I thought it would be. On the chop stock wrapper, it says “The Bar In Which Penguinsare Present” and that pretty much nails it. There’s a exhibit at the back of the bar with four penguins and you get to feed them one. And there’s lots of penguin stuff hanging in the bar, but the penguins don’t really wander around or anything.

The good and drinks were pretty good though.

I went to a couple of different grocery stores looking for them and even asked a couple friends to look at their grocery stores. No purple onions. Today, while shopping at the grocery store we usually go to, the grocery store that never ever has purple onion, I found this:

Purple onions. Oh well. The potato salad still turned out great.
