A Very Bad Choice in Dining Venue

We decided tonight to try a different place for dinner — a place in our neighborhood that we had noticed but had never tried. It advertises both Greek and Italian food, and I had heard some years ago that it was pretty good.

We got there when only one couple was waiting, so the hostess told us it would be only five minutes “or so” until we got a table. We sat down to wait. And wait. And wait.
