Of mops and flops

Yesterday’s telephone call from Denny Driscoll of The Lobster Shops perplexed me. Did he think I’d been in his Ruston Way restaurant and noticed something? (See blog entry below.)

Then it got me thinking: What if restaurant owners lose sleep over what I think?

Could they anticipate problems and fix them before I had a chance to gripe or snark?

With more restaurant activity on Sixth Avenue, I think it’s fair to say Old Milwaukee and Shakabrah are on my radar. Here goes wishful thinking:

One needs to hide its dirty mop and bucket from view at the end of the day (you can see them as you drive by).

The other needs to use mops, buckets and their cleaning closet cousins more effectively.
