Lunch with Pacanis

Yep, we got to meet another great DC member today! We met pacanis for lunch at a nice little place just a hop, skip, and a jump from Lake Erie. We didn't talk much about food or even DC, but we talked a lot about cars and dogs. He has always been my "go to guy" when it comes to dogs! He was definitely a nice guy, as I knew he would be. We passed JoeV's NYT raisin bread on to him.

In the pictures, pacanis is the thin one, James and I are the others.

Wow.... I look like I was riding my bike all day.
Behind a semi.

Yeah, lottso fun. You folks are pretty easy to get along with. The food AND company were good. And the lunch plus a "taste" of Joe V's bread still has me wonderin' if I'm going to eat any dinner tonight.
I would love to be able to do what you guys are doing. What an adventure travelling around and meeting people you have only read their words. Very fortunate for those of us along your way

LOL We ate our share first!

It was definitely fun, and the food was great! Their breaded, fried mushrooms were huge!
