On our side

Kudos to El Torito Restaurant in Concord, CA!! Today while on an easy ride, we had the urge for a margarita and chips. As I rode up to the entrance, an employee was just getting into work when I realized that I didn't bring my lock. I asked her if she had outdoor seating, to which she replied they didn't. I felt bummed that we couldn't go in, for there was no way I was leaving my bike outside unattended.

As she started to go in, she held the door open for us to come in. She then went and got the boss and asked if the bikes could come into the dining area. He actually let us bring the bikes over to the tables and we rested the bikes against the wall. He commented that he can see the bikes are expensive and wouldn't want us to lose them.

Isn't that cool?

Or a businessman. Customer is a customer, even he/she rides a bike.
