I Want Flapjacks
I feel somewhat guilty that yesterday marked my first visit to an Applebee's restaurant in a couple years. Perhaps my regular patronage would have been just enough to prevent the locally-based company from agreeing to be purchased by IHOP. I opted for this six dollar tomato soup and grilled shrimp salad combo. While good, it didn't quite fill my enormous stomach. And as their marketing blitz suggests, Applebee's seems to be going for an upscale sports bar look. The concept doesn't really appeal to me, unless my finicky Aunt Beulah insists that I take her out to eat after church on Sunday.
