Since we did not go out for breakfast this morning we decided to go out for lunch instead. I have been wanting to go back to Joey’s California Bistro, near 7th St and Bell Rd, so we headed there. We’ve been to Joey’s once in the past, when we lived on Sweetwater Ave, and I remembered the fare as being good but I could not remember why we have not been back since. Perhaps it is because we seldom go out for pizza. In any case, we had the 12-inch pizza (the only size on the menu). We ordered the Meat Pizza: sauce, cheese, sausage, salami, and pepperoni. I had anchovies added to my half, Elaine had pineapple added to hers. Continue reading Pizza at Joey’s. Social Club meeting. Elaine better. Patio cleanup.
Saturday morning breakfast out was at Fast Eddie’s Diner at 33rd Ave and W Bell this morning. We go there on occasion and always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. It is a fun place with lots of character; the photo shows examples of signs and photos seen on their walls – always humorous. Elaine discovered a part of the menu we had not seen before – half size meals! That suited us just fine, and she ordered the half size French toast with bacon and egg and I ordered the half waffle with bacon and scrambled eggs plus a couple of sausage links to have some to take home to the boys. Both meals came with cheesy hash browns, but we didn’t have much of those. Continue reading Fast Eddie’s Breakfast. Social Club meeting.
There being ten Royal Palm residents with birthdays in July, Sharlene Froberg came up with the idea of getting together to celebrate and Gail Brazell did the organizing; both have July birthdays. Gail set it up for all to gather at North Mountain Brewing Co at 522 E Dunlap Ave, not far from the Park. What a great gathering, and what a great place to eat! The group included some with July birthdays and family and invited guests, such as Elaine and me. Continue reading Cracker Barrel breakfast. Social Club meeting.

We got our flu shots today. The Walgreen’s at 35th Ave and Dunlap Ave sponsored a clinic here at Royal Palm so that residents could get their flu shots. Elaine and I both got ours when we showed up for the Royal Palm Social Club Board meeting, so we are set for the season. This was a welcome service offered by Walgreen’s, and we hope to foster and closer relationship with more events such as this in the future. I also hope to get them to advertise in our newsletter, The Palm Press. Such services are very beneficial for those who cannot get out easily, and we have some of those here in the park since wee are a 55+ community. Continue reading Hectic, tired. Flu shots. Geek Squad.
