The Cheesecake Factory VS. the COVID-19 Virus!!   1 comment

Last Thursday we went for lunch at The Cheesecake Factory and the Godiva cheesecake is as smooth as ever but now I understand why I have money!! Just by not eating out every Thursday for 6 months and/or paying $35 per person, including tip, for a lunch, even just once a week, plus not going to the movies, legit theatre, in other words enjoying life, saves money BUT it is not living!

It’s summer so even normally Los Olas is on the quiet side but with the virus it is dead as was The Cheesecake Factory. There were maybe about 4 tables taken inside and 2 outside so I am sure the servers weren’t making a living but the service was not the best. As a used to be server I can understand this because when a place is busy you get a rhythm going and work faster/better while when it is slow, and you aren’t making money, right or wrong a ‘so what’ attitude takes over.

This is the second time I have eaten out since the COVID-19 virus hit the Fort Lauderdale area in April and, in both cases, the restaurants seem to be following the ‘new rules’ but one never knows what is going on behind the scenes.

Mmmmmm–was the cheesecake worth the gamble? I’ll let you know in a few weeks!
