The van was late to arrive and they asked us to walk up a block to Rampart St because they said they could not drive down our street but we saw their vans all over. We had to switch vans at some point. The drive is long and costs more than the plantation.

On the way back to the quarter we decided to go back to Acme..it was just so damn good we needed those oysters again, and it was just as good the second time.
