we ate at greekers

March 21, 2009  🥘

Today, we tried out Greekers, the new place from Billy – the guy behind Billy’s. I don’t know whether we’ll be going back in the near future, even though it wasn’t a horrible experience.

json, yaml, cpan, meta

If you know what those details are, it’s a pain. If you don’t know what they are, you don’t feel any pain until later, when you find out all the ways things went wrong.
