Decisions, decisions . . .

I went to our neighborhood Macaroni Grill for dinner tonight and, as I pulled into my parking spot, I noticed that I was parking right in front of this sign:


It's like the ultimate "That's Not My Department," isn't it?

I double-checked to make sure that I hadn't accidentally driven to the Macaroni Grill in the 5th Ward and then sat in my car for a second to determine if the bow tie pasta was good enough to justify losing my car and my belongings for. And then I did a brief scan of the parking lot to make sure there wasn't another sign that said "See you inside . . . but if you get shot in a drive-by shooting on your way in, we're not responsible!" Feeling reasonably assured of my safety, I got out of my car and ran quickly inside.

Because, honestly, the bow tie pasta IS really good . . .

You gotta love it!

I'm suprised they didn't have a welcome sign
at the door that said "Glad you made it this far, our
pasta is almost worth dying for!"

Nice picture!

As a lawyer, Catherine, does a sign like this really limit their liability?

Funny post, as usual. What I really wanted to tell you though is that I love the green sweater side bars with the retro flowers. So very Anthropologie.
