Last night I went to the first IHOP I have ever seen that had its own security.  I didn’t know whether I should feel very safe or very scared…  Either way, we left as it started to get rowdy.  By rowdy I mean that the restaurant was less than half full and sounded like a sold-out stadium, fewer than half the patrons were in a seat, and the wait staff began to look a little harried.  When we were seated, they told us it might start to get rowdy in about 45 minutes.  Note to self: Never make another late-night pit-stop to that IHOP.  Travel the few miles further up the road to the IHOP where all the old people flock – you know they’re all in bed at 1:30 in the morning.
