A Hugely Popular Place
The Front Page is a hugely
popular place in our neighborhood. It is always packed at lunch
and almost always at dinner. When we arrived the other night,
every table was taken except one, which had only one chair left.
Probably every friend and family
member who has visited us has eaten at the Front Page. My
brother Dick and his wife Peggy along with my godson Michael and
his family celebrate New Years morning here with us. Peggy loves
the Belgian waffles. It is probably fair to say that no other
restaurant in the world has hosted so many of our friends and
With me is our hostess Caitlin or
Precious, as she is usually called (she says her grandfather calls her
"Ornery"). She has just stolen a chair from another table for us.
