I Am A Dork
I have a spreadsheet going on up in here right now. Of what, you ask? Well, sir, this'n here spreadsheet is a restaurant spreadsheet (created on Google spreadsheets, 'natch). I'm making a list of where I want to eat on my Europe trip (which is still about a month away) and right now, the section on Paris is a little obscene. Like 87 restaurants long obscene. I'm guessing that's not going to be so possible in 4.5 days. But fuck that -- it's good to have goals.
It's so pretty, though! I have cities and restaurant names and addresses and phone numbers and neighborhoods and who recommended it and meals it serves and hours of operation and type of restaurant and metro stops and a little check for whether I have a reservation or not.
Now my question, that I pose to you all, is why the fuck don't these restaurants publish their goddamn hours? I mean, some of them I can't find anywhere. And I'm sure as hell not going to waste precious Parisian time trekking to a place that will be fermé.
As for Barcelona, my only day there will be a Sunday, where it seems, everything (especially Cal Pep) is closed. There are a few heathens around, though, I just know it, and I will trudge on and find a place that will feed me. Well.
Now if someone could lift the "no liquids" ban on the airlines, I'll be all set.
