A friend from Peterborough was visiting this weekend. She used to live in North Toronto wanted to go to the Steak Pit last night for dinner.

I used to go there a lot but had not been for a few years. It was a Saturday night and the place was 90% empty. Some guy greeted us and I asked him if it had changed ownership. He said no, I have been here for 22 years. I don't recall ever seeing him. None of the regular waitresses were there and our waitress said she had been working there for many years. Again, I cannot recall ever seeing her before. In the past the same guy was there at lunch and dinnertime. The restaurant had been in his family for many years. He was not there last night. This is the first time tI can recall him not being there.

The food was very much the same but it felt errie in there. Neither of us want to go back because it just doesn't feel right. If that makes any sense. I wonder what is going on.
