Before the show my friend Dave and I had dinner at the Santa Maria Bar-B-Que a block away from the Kirk Douglas Theater.
The food here is consistently outstanding, the service not so much. Every time I go the set up seems a little different. Sometimes you order at the front cash register, sometimes you order from a waiter.
This time they'd posted a sign by the front door reading, "Please Wait for the Hostess to Seat You." Pretty standard directions. After we'd stood there for a couple of minutes the woman working the cash register looked at us like we were idiots, threw two menus in our direction and said, "sit anywhere you want."
