Flippy Floppy: Gotta Like Flies To Like Silver $ Inn

“Please Seat Yourself” read the sign at the café entry. The gift shop, casino, and bar were abuzz with activity but the cafe was empty but for one random table full of rather gothy looking teenagers who looked like they’d been sitting there for three weeks. Naturally, we picked a booth near them so we could spy on their antics (We were them once, many years ago.) Our plump but very pleasant waitress poured our water and gave us our menus. Wow – the water here is damn good. I always brag about how good CDA water is, but this tasted like it just melted right off a glacier and into my cup. The menu was full of standard cafeteria fare – sandwiches, burgers, steak and salad, chicken strips, and the prices were clearly oriented toward the tourist. I picked a Mushroom Swiss Burger and Fries for $8.95, and Q settled on a Western Burger for the same price. Good thing we decided quickly because our waitress returned after giving us only about 45 seconds. More water, please – I wanted to bottle it and take it home. Meanwhile, our gothy teen neighbors were making fun of the busload of Japanese tourists that had just poured into the gift shop.
