iSee: Lobster Claw Machine

First, let me apologize for the crappy "Cops" style camera work. I am still getting used to my iPhone, and it shows. With that in mind, if I had the opportunity to re-shoot this, I would.  But I don't, and I thought it was really unique, so therefore we will all just have to deal with my crappy camera work.

At the Andretti Indoor Kart Racing & Games in Roswell, Georgia, they have the most unique claw machine since "Toy Story." For $2.00, you have the chance to win yourself a live lobster! The tank didn't have any info on it as to the weight of the lobsters -- but based on entirely too many years of being a server at Red Lobster, I would say that they're about 1.5 lbs. I asked the server how often people really won, and she said that the lobsters often end up meeting the claw.

So, if you're in the Roswell area and feel like catching your dinner without actually having to brave sun, bugs, and lack of air conditioning...this is definitely something to check out!

New feature!

First, my thanks to you once again for my having to take a break. It has been a hard time for the family because the loss of my aunt was sudden and unexpected.

Regardless of what happens in life, the Web still sails on and there are posts to write.  A new feature that I am trying out is called iSee.  iSee is going to be short Youtube videos featuring food, or interesting food-related items or places that I see in my wanderings. All videos will be safe for work and I hope you like them. Please let me know what you guys think!

Yet another hiatus due to family matters...

I know, it seems as if every time I try to make a comeback something bad happens.  And once again, yes, something bad has happened.

Unfortunately, there has been an unexpected death in my family (my step-aunt, to be specific).  I  will be away from home for a while, probably a little over a week, to attend her funeral and be with the family. But I will return to this blog as soon as possible, I promise.

Thank you all for your patience with me.
