Letter to Editor: Where Are You Eating on Friday?

first_imgChocolate chip pancakes, pork roll and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup coffee from Jon & Patties at 637 Asbury Avenue in Ocean City, NJTo the Editor:A while back, I wrote a letter to OCNJ Daily saying how I was going to increase my support of Ocean City businesses by sitting down and eating a meal at an Ocean City restaurant every other Friday — in addition to my normal level of support of area businesses.We are approaching another “Dine Out Friday,” my friends, which of course begs the question: Where are you eating Friday?So far, I have had penne and chicken at Nonna’s Trattoria, French toast at Sunrise Café, a Philly roast beef sandwich at Varsity Inn, eggs benedict at Ready’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant, chicken saltimbocca at Vittorio’s Italian Restaurant, a roast beef sandwich at Arlene’s on Asbury, the Sunrise Breakfast at Sunrise Café, the Teriyaki Salmon Steak at Jay’s Crab Shack, the Philly Cheeseburger at the Varsity Inn (that was supposed to be a trip to the OC Surf Cafe, but they were temporarily closed at the time), the Coal Miner’s Bliss from Frankie’s by the Bay, and Pancakes & Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Coffee from Jon & Pattie’s.This Friday, my work schedule means I will most likely skip lunch. And since I will be the asking the questions at CONTACT Cape-Atlantic’s Quizzo tournament at 6:30 over at Sandi Pointe (walk-ins welcome), I’ll probably be skipping dinner, too. Which means the Chatterbox, which is scheduled to open tomorrow, better be ready to serve me a HUGE breakfast. I will be posting a picture of my meal on OCNJ Daily’s Facebook page. I hope to see other people posting pictures this Friday, too!Ed SheppardOcean Citylast_img read more
