What if we held a Bad Movie Night and no one came? It was Bad Movie Night yesterday and it was just Samith and I. Usually we have from 4 to 12 people. Okay, usually we have 4-6 people, but we occasionally break double digits. Yesterday it was like the very first Bad Movie Nights a dozen or so years ago when it was just Samith and I all the time.
We were both 15 minutes late and that meant we were walking into the theater just when Robocop was starting. It was actually a surprisingly good movie. There were about 4 parts that I really hated, but apart from that it was entertaining. It was also surprisingly long –nearly 2 hours long.
After the movie we decided to eat someplace we hadn’t eaten before. They’ve opened up about a hundred new restaurants in the Haymarket. We went to the first one that we saw that we hadn’t been to before. That turned out to be the Rodizio Grill. It was good, but there were only two things on the menu. You could have the salad bar.
That was about a third of the salad bar. It could easily be a meal. I wish it had a quarter for scale. Those are actually fairly large serving spoons. Oh, wait. Here is a Samith for scale…
You could also order the salad bar and meat. They had a little sign type thing on the table and if you had it turned one way they would bring you a new meat to try every few (2-3) minutes. When you were ready to take a break from the meat (to get more salad or whatever) you would turn the sign over. We probably started and stopped a half dozen times or more during the course of the meal.
Each serving of meat was only a few bites and there were easily over a dozen different ones to try. My favorite was the ham, followed closely by the grilled pineapple (which I’m given to understand is not actually a meat). They had beef, pork, lamb and chicken each prepared 3-4 different ways. There were probably more. The last time we turned our sign over they brought something by that we hadn’t seen before.
For those of you not in Nebraska, I would also like to point out that it snowed while we were there. It was 70 degrees out yesterday.
