I fled from the Bay Area's toxic wildfire air to Palm Springs last Saturday and felt terrible for everyone left behind while my lungs thanked me with every breath.
On Tuesday I joined my friend Grant, who works in Palm Springs, for the Businesspersons Lunch Special at Spencer's Restaurant.
It's a great deal at $19.50 for a three-course meal at a beautiful, fancy restaurant, but the packaging is a hilarious misnomer. The menu states that the busy businessperson's lunch is meant to be served in 45 minutes, but our experience was closer to 110 minutes.
Which was perfect, especially since we were joined by Paul, Grant's office manager at their EIR consulting firm, who was the essence of amusement.
