TGIF - It's Thursday

VB is still in the process of processing Number One Son's visit to Egypt. He wanted to eat somewhere on the Nile. VB and The Boss Man had a not so good experience at TGIF the last time we visited. The service was horrible. It was one of those situations where people who were seated after you, got served first; where one of you got your dinner, while the other was expected to wait, and wait, and wait; and then, it was delivered cold. Needless to say, we were not interested in another visit, but due to time constraints, we decided to give it another go. We sat outside this time. The weather was a bit on the cool side as the sun set. VB also found out that they do not serve glasses of wine, which she thought they did in the past. (She's not sure, since she's not a regular patron.) The Boss Man is cool with that, since someone needs to direct him home (he has no sense of direction.)

Will we visit TGIF again? VB prefers the Fish Market a few doors down. The service at TGIF was okay this past visit, and the food is mediocre. Yes, it's an American chain, but who cares. And we don't eat there when we're in the States, so.... The answer is probably not, unless the kinder choose to. The view is good, but that's about it.
