Ohio Road Trip: Akron, OH Milestone– Part III

After some well needed Boggle time we stopped in Akron/Copley, OH, for some lunch at Chili’s. Exit 137B off of I-77 South is a really screwed up intersection!  It is a right turn only. That wouldn’t be so bad if all restaurants were in that direction. As we turned around by the hospital I saw this sign below.

This language confused me at first. Mainly because I thought it stated, “actual signal”. This is not terminology I’m not used to seeing.
Lunch was fabulous! The food, as always, was terrific. We ordered the Triple Dipper with Boneless Buffalo Chicken, Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip, and Southwestern Egg Rolls. Peter had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich, while I had the Santa Fe Chicken Salad. Everything was delicious. Our server, Damiano, was a hoot!

The manner in which he suggested a margarita was superb. His service skills were tremendous. If I had to choose three words to describe Damiano they would be friendly, exuberant, and delightful. The support staff was fantastic as well. We enjoyed our time at Chili’s immensely. Thank you!
While at lunch all those rain storms we passed had caught up with us. They are sticking around a bit longer because we are now traveling directly south, which is perpendicular to the storm cells extending from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. Luckily they are not severe storms.

Some of my readers may be asking, “What does this have to do with fiber arts?” Nothing, absolutely nothing, Sam and Sally.
“Well, where does the fiber come in?”
To tell you the truth, I’m not even sure it will. I was sure to pack a prayer shawl project and some cotton for a peace pal. I’d like to hit some yarn stores on the way, but they are so out of the way. Some are out of the way by 20-40 miles from the highway. * sigh * Does anyone know of any knitting or spinning shops on our route? We’re on I-90E/I-80E through Indiana/Ohio. Maybe we’ll get lucky, and find a small shop in the town of New Philadelphia. Knitmap doesn’t show everyone out there, nor does Local Fibers.

More later!
