Mermaid dances

There's a restaurant on Main Street in Santa Monica that takes you in with a dark warm glittering welcome. Its old style seafood-house decor is wrapped everywhere with multicolored twinkle lights. They have a good happy hour at the bar, or you can sit down for table service.

You slide into the embrace of a red vinyl booth, and relax. The waitress brings your drinks.

The cocktail napkins are politically incorrect.

Here's how they serve the martini olives.

The food is good old American classic. The steaks are pretty good, and so's the seafood. Garlic mashed potatoes and spinach round out a fine meal. It's always good to eat seafood in a restaurant that features portholes for windows.

And mermaids.




Flipping mermaids.

Glennis,
agree with you about the cocktail napkins that politically incorrect. With a heart? I don't think so:) If they pay me a good salary, I'd like to be their imagemaker,lol:)
One thing so properly done is their serving style w/ mermaids on the martini olives, loved this idea, quite innovative, no need regulation:)

As for your surprising note regarding your encounter, sure you can give my link. Would like to hear a new voice:)

You see Glennis, not everything is virtual but you become a bridge btw 2-Istanbulites, another timely happening to my post Which Capital.

Another timely thing, the very first snow in the city. Remember? I wished. I shared my wish, and here snowy day. What fun!

Oh about being a lengthy comment; wish you a very Merry Christmas and joyful holiday season to you and yours.

Those mermaids look like they would make fine catapults as well. Incoming!
