Tonight, we got the distressing news that two restaurants in our area have closed. Gone belly up. Kaput. And one of them was a favorite of ours.
Bennigans and Steak and Ale.
The news (where we learned of this tragedy) blames our sad economy for the closures. They claim that not enough people are eating out. And not enough money is being poured into local restaurants.
So, we are going out to dinner tonight. We have to. We have to do our part to help the economy.
