Since it is Friday, I thought I would go to Happy Hour and write a blog post about it. This decision was not arrived at without a great deal of dithering. Had I earned such a treat? Was this the smartest move considering I am subsisting on unemployment benefits? What about my weight loss goals?
On the other hand, we need to support our local businesses during these uncertain times. Additionally, I could walk to and from my destination, thus getting much needed exercise. With these arguments floating around in my head, I set out for Jamo’s Restaurant and Bar in Herkimer, NY.
I arrived shortly before four, to find out they open at four. That suited me, because Happy Hour also started at four, so I sat down on the bench to wait. I took a picture of my view while I waited.
At four I went in, sat at the bar, ordered a glass of wine, and perused the menu. Stupidly, I set my purse on the bar. I was startled by the crash when it fell over, breaking my wine glass.
I am embarrassed to admit, I burst into tears. I have been very emotional lately. The waitresses could not have been nicer. They got me a fresh place setting and a new glass of wine. What the hell, me? I am usually much better at rolling with the punches. When somebody breaks a wine glass at my house, I say, “Oh, that’s all right.” For some reason it is much worse when I do it.
I guess that picture turned out a little dark, but it will have to do. I ate some Boneless Wings with Everything Sauce and brought leftovers home. It was a pleasant interlude, and I still have time to watch a monster movie.
Jamo’s Restaurant and Bar is located at 123 Mohawk St., Herkimer, phone number 315-866-1746.
