Had Fri. off so met a couple friends at Bartley's for lunch. There was just enough room for us when we got there, cleared out shortly after around 1:45. Those prices have crept up, most burgers are >$8. My Mitt Romney (hated ordering that) was I think $9.15 w/ swiss cheese and grilled onions. An excellent burger, one of the best I've had in a while. Cooked medium (and didn't take nearly as long as last time I ordered the same thing) with that nice crunchy coating. A mess to eat but that was okay. Onion rings didn't seem as good as usual, not crispy enough. A regular cheeseburger was good as was the fish sandwich the other person got. I ended up with a mocha frappe which hit the spot too.

After getting yet another bat out of my place on Sat., I took my helper out to brunch at the Dogwood by Forest Hills. He hadn't had eggs in ages and enjoyed the breakfast burrito. I got a scramble w/ red peppers, onions and breakfast sausage. Not too much sausage, not cooked as much as I would have liked, but it was fine. The side of potatoes was a little different, little wedges with a good crisp coating. Nothing to write home about but it was cool in there and it was fine for $7 and $9. Hung out in AC a little more at Cafe Ula down the street where I enjoyed the iced coffee and oatmeal cherry cookie. The place was quite jumping. I was told by a Canto 6 worker not to talk about the U word, but it's defiitely a great space.
