Day 132 - Lil Hoss - 22 Apr 2011
Back in my salad days at Penn State, *the* place to go out to eat when someone else was paying was Hoss's steakhouse. This was not just because they had a great salad bar, or decent steaks. They also had a great selection of fresh breads that my constantly hungry 20 year old self could not get enough of.
When heading back to PA for Easter, we needed somewhere to stop for dinner, and since I had given up french fries for Lent (what was I thinking?) we needed a non-fast food destination. When I saw the sign for Hoss's, I thought it would be a good opportunity for some Pennsylvania ethnic food, and to expose the children to their cultural heritage (and they also have soft server ice cream).
Well, I don't know if it is because Hoss's has changed or if because I have, but some of the luster was lacking. The food was fine, but the experience just did not compare to my memory of it.
I think the lesson to be learned from this is: Don't give up french fries for Lent.
