As I plan the day ...
coffee
kinzel
Tilapia for our afternoon meal, be it lunch, dinner, or supper. What do *you* call the day's biggest meal if it happens in the afternoon?

Meanwhile, on the agenda for RSN, a visit to the local cause célèbre ... a coffee shop you may have seen news about on CNN, Huffington Post, or heard about on your local radio station. Yes, I mean the new topless place a few miles down the street -- the Grand View Cafe ...

Understand that this is not the first topless place in Maine -- for awhile there was a topless donut shop in Portland (and it may still be therefor all I know) -- but not only is it relatively close by and on routes that I travel frequently, but it is another challenge to the "you can't do that here" mentality that seems to permeate central Maine. A few years ago there was a place called (IIRC) the Tijuana Beach Club -- a bar featuring bikini-clad dancers -- which was shut down by "community pressure" after only a few months in business. Yep .. people were right, it did bring business in from other towns. It gave people work. It even had decent drinks ... but the locals would prefer no jobs and an empty, under-taxed store front.

Practical Mainers, I note, seem to be taking a "if you don't like it, don't go there approach" to the coffee shop, FWIW.

Now back to today's chapter revision
