Lincoln

One of my co-workers took me to Lincoln for lunch as a birthday present. That morning, I had a temporary crown put on and was very numb, and worried that I might not be able to eat by lunch time. Luckily, the numbness wore off in time as I order my Cubano and Brussels sprouts….

Woodward Table Food

I’m really making headway through my “ultimate fried chicken sandwich” list. I decided to start my birthday week a little early and treat myself to a delicious chicken sandwich.
