Midnight Sun Sam and I were just discussing whether Mother's Federal Hill Grille is the only non-chain restaurant in the Baltimore area to have curbside pickup. Heck, I can't even think of any chain restaurants that have curbside pickup -- although I think maybe Outback does, so that probably means its sibling restaurants do.
That this is so appealing shows how low I've sunk. Not only do I not want to cook for my family, I don't even want to get out of the car to pick up dinner for them. I don't even want to drive as far out of my way as Mother's to pick up dinner, for that matter. Why isn't there a curbside pickup restaurant about a block away from The Sun on my way home?
One of The Powers That Be here told me he sometimes double parks in front of Sammy's Trattoria and picks up lasagna to take home. I have to admire that. With my luck, I would double park, pick up my lasagna, and come out to find my car had been towed.
