A couple of years ago, we planned a newsroom outing to Miss Mary Bobo's in Lynchburg. No sooner had we made our reservations than the restaurant announced a big grand opening event to celebrate its re-opening and expansion. So even though eating at Miss Mary Bobo's is a rare treat for me, on that occasion I ate there twice in the span of a week.
Well, we decided this year to plan another such newsroom outing, which will take place in the next few days, to celebrate the completion of several big projects. We also have several relative newcomers to the staff who've never been to the restaurant before.
Wouldn't you know it? I got an e-mail yesterday inviting me to a special event next week as the restaurant celebrates the 100th anniversary of Miss Mary Bobo opening her boarding house. So, once again, I'll be eating there twice in the span of a week.
Not that I'm complaining, you understand.
