In any event, we gave up on riding the bike to the restaurant and instead took the car. After lunch, we poked our heads into a little art gallery, which looks really cool, and will be a great place to buy Christmas ornaments some time after T-day (not out yet). Next door was a computer repair and recycle shop with a truly amazing display of ancient hardware.
Maynard is Cool. Also, it's the only place nearby that allows drive thrus. The golden arches there has been closed for a while being completely rebuilt; I'm looking forward to its return, hopefully with a truly amazing indoor playspace.
