Yay! Grease for Lunch - Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

We repaired to Sherman's Deli (previously covered) after the Air Museum.  Anne had to try the sandwich I'd described to her - latkes (potato pancakes) and corned beef as a sandwich.  The latkes replaced the usual rye bread.   Not wanting to be seen as a wimp in the Grease Depart. I ordered a Knockwurst Reuben - rye bread that holds a split, halved grilled knockwurst with sauerkraut and Swiss cheese and then the whole sandwich is grilled again.  Both were so filling that we had to save half of each sandwich.  Virtuously we assured each other that they could be divided yet again and serve as everyone's breakfast.  (Relax. We didn't.)

Richie dropped Frank and self off at the hotel and he and Anne set off to conquer the Palm Springs aerial tram.  We wished them Godspeed and then Frank went to their room, probably for a refreshing siesta.  I went to the office and caught up on mail on their guest-use computer.

When they returned Richie had brought with himself a new bad habit.  "We mountaineers" began to dominate all conversational efforts from him.  We all got back in the car and set off to tour the Village Museum in the heart of town.  Which had closed at 4 p.m. and it was now 5. 

Shrugging, we vowed to stop by next morning on our way out of town.  And moved it on down the road to the Village Pub patio.  Service was extremely slow, so after the second beer, we walked back up the road to Lulu's (just across from Kaiser Grill.)  Lulu's has had a busy career - first it was Miss Muriel's Supper Club; then that closed; then it became something else and now "she's" Lulu's which was having a very good special - three courses salad or soup, entrée and dessert) for $20!

Anne and Richie had the salad with wontons; Frank had minestrone; me a Caesar salad - the kind I don't like because it's long spears of Romaine lettuce done up like a bundle.  Awkward to eat and the top leaves were a little o-l-d.
Anne and I went on to the lobster ravioli (no discernible lobster) and Richie had a shrimp and pasta dish.  All four of us had tiramisu for dessert.  Not the most riveting meal I've ever had, but the price was right.
