thursday august 20

today i went with my roommate to the restaurant 'grace' to try their thursday bbq+beer $10 special. we drove to a nearby street and got out of the car to make the two-minute walk to the restaurant, and immediately were greeted with a torrential downpour, part of maybe the worst storm to hit the city this year. after attempting to wait it out in the car for about 10-15 minutes, we eventually decided to make a dash for it. this involved getting soaked from head to toe (despite having umbrellas), witnessing a streetcar appear to get hit by lightning about 40 feet from us, then being turned away at the restaurant because (of course) they couldn't possibly barbecue in these conditions. it was a demoralizing evening all around.
