The Sarasota Idle

We moved around a lot today. We're not really getting the REALLY hot and sunny weather we had hoped for in Florida, but we do get spotted days and it's not totally freezing, like back home, so it's a plus anyway ya slice it. J' really had to get down and do some work so today was more of a work day than a play day but it's gotta be done. We put in a Borders in our GPS, got to it, loaded up everything to take inside and after our loooooong walk from the parking lot discovered that they closed their doors. Luckily, a Barnes & Noble (who probably put them out of business) was just a half mile down the street. We sat there for a couple of hours, until our computers were close to dead (only one plug-in and it was taken), then got back in the van, plugged in and drove "across the street" to the mall (Westfield Sarasota Square). It's a pretty nice mall. We sat in the Food Court and worked for a little while longer until J' couldn't take the exhaustingly slow internet speed there. From there we got back in the van, ate a little something and worked a little more.

J' really wanted to watch the game (Broncos vs. Patriots) so while he was working I was trying to find a place to go....again close and within our budget. We found a few places and went to three of them before we made a decision. We were looking for a good atmosphere with good seats and a good price. We ended up at a place called Crusty's Pizza.

We walked right in, found a great spot to sit right in front of a bunch of t.v's! They had a plug-in right where we were sitting with free wi-fi...not that J' would want to work now, but at least it was there! The food wasn't too bad either. It was nice and we were able to watch the game without any annoyances and crowds & we barely paid anything. It was what we were looking for and we found it, so I don't think you can ask for more than that!
