Snack stand, Pompeii

As mentioned, Pompeii featured all the conveniences one might expect to find in a modern town. Here’s a photo of a typical snack stand (my term) found in almost every street around the town.

There’s a bar with the holes over which warm food could be served. There’s even a cutout in the bar to serve what I believe was “take out” food. I can imagine people stopping in here for something to eat, a friendly chat, and then going on with their day. I wonder what was everyone’s favorite snack.

West Chester Restaurant Festival

West Chester, PA (USA) hosts a fantastic restaurant festival. And who doesn’t love a great meal? Wandered the streets for several hours, meeting friends from my regular joints like The Classic Diner.

They had Belgian Waffles there as you can see in the next photo:

There were other stands, too, with everything from homemade soft drinks to pasta to baked goods to smoked meats.

Speaking of which, I needed a brisket fix and connected with this sandwich, which had me enjoying in a serious way:

This was a great festival with crafts, live music, and plenty of friendly people. I only wish I could eat more. See you next year. Enjoy ever meal in between.
