The Buffet-RIP?

Most of my favorite supported bike tours have featured the AYCE buffet, usually breakfast and dinner. Sleep on the ground, pee in a bottle, roll up a damp tent in the morning. THEN- urns of hot coffee, great mounds of bacon, piles of pancakes, hashbrowns, biscuits and gravy.... Around here there are several State Park restaurants with excellent Sunday lunch buffets. Imagine fried chicken and huge pans of banana pudding! Plus everyone probably has a favorite Asian buffet. All gone for now, casualties of COVID. Will they come back? I surely hope so!

I wish I could get back to Malvern, PA to Su Tao Café and then head over to Pinball Gallery to work off the calories with some Galaga and tons of Pinball (and many other games) then to Gong's Market and Usha Indian Grocery for all sorts of eastern groceries. Also a huge shoutout to Greyhound Café which is also quite good but no buffet however a really friendly owner and good food. I should try to do a tour to Malvern, we typically drive a ways to get there.

Not really. Planes are flying full, big box stores are open, schools are open, in fact everything is open.
And the weather is beautiful this time of year.
Maybe that’s why so many are moving here.

FL in the winter is nice, for sure. I lived in the Panhandle for most of my adult life until back to back hurricanes drove us out about 15 years ago. I still wouldn't risk eating at a buffet, even in nice weather.
