Sticker shock

This past Sunday, Scott and I visited the church near our office again. Afterward, we decided to have lunch at TGI Fridays on Broadway just a few blocks from work. I didn't even know it was there until this past week. So we thought it'd be a good place to sit down and have a nice lunch before going to work. Well it was a nice place to sit down. And a decent lunch. But the bill...not so pretty. I think I can honestly say this is the first time I've had sticker shock in New York.

TGI Friday's people, here we go. I'd like to draw attention to the fact that a Pepsi is $4. My fish & chips was only $2 less than Scott's steak (with loaded mashed potatoes). And although we didn't order one, a CHEESEBURGER IS $17.

Add the tip and... For that much money, we could've actually eaten at a fancy restaurant! Lesson learned. Don't eat at a restaurant at Wall Street and Broadway and expect it to be reasonable.

Yikes! That hurts.

But was it good??? It sounds delicious. I'm starving...
