Had the crab bisque today -- very tasty. Got there between 3 and 3:30 and there was no line. Three of the selections were sold out but there were still five to choose from and the bisque was very good.
Extras were the usual hunk of fresh bread, chocolate, small container of grapes and strawberries and a tangerine.
Al has mellowed -- or at least he's more affable when there's no line. He was smiling and waving to someone across the street and the guy who arrived after me got away with stating his order before he handed over the money.
Also, Al is selling t-shirts. In keeping with SKI tradition, they're overpriced at $17.
