Take out for lunch

 

I was eager for my lunch pick up/take out and sat patiently in my mask...which even has some bugs on it among the leaves. Yes that's Frieda Kahlo on the wall behind me! I look like I'm hungry enough to eat the bugs off my mask!


Considering how many people wait in this lobby to go into either one of the two dining rooms, or out on the patio, not many of us stop and look at Mrs. Ole's treasures.


This is the dining room with a bar.



A couple of little Mexican puppets hung above my head.





Frieda was featured in lots of places, this is the bench upon which I waited.


I finally got my Baja tacos (a la carte which costs just $7.50 for the 2 of them!) and went home.

Today's quote:

The tragedy in the lives of most of us is that we go through life walking down a high-walled lane with people of our own kind, the same economic situation, the same national background and education and religious outlook. And beyond those walls, all humanity lies, unknown and unseen, and untouched by our restricted and impoverished lives. -Florence Luscomb, architect and suffragist (1887-1985)

  2. You had a good look around and, presumably, some good food too.

    1. I enjoy taking photos wherever I am, being more of a "share the moment" kind of photographer. Yes good food!

  3. Lots of art to look at while you waited for your lunch. A lovely and beautiful way to spend some time.

    1. It's especially nice when the small area isn't crammed with people too. That's probably why I'd not noticed a lot of these little things before.

  4. One well decorated take out spot. Do you call ahead and still have to wait?

    1. They tell me how long before my order is going to be ready when I call it in...but I didn't have anything else to do, so decided to wait inside in their lobby.

    1. It's a really nice room in which to eat, or sit at the bar and watch whatever's on TV (often soccer.)
