Brian's been talking up Surplus City for about 10 years. Now that I've started up my craft business, I thought it might be worth a trip out there. So, we went there yesterday morning to check things out. Frankly, I was a little disappointed. I went there with a list, and that was my first mistake. They didn't really have what I was looking for. I did find some stuff I could use, so it wasn't a total bust. They did have some cool items there, though not related to crafts. I think it would be fun to go there and buy some of the unusual stuff they have, but that's a trip for another day.
After shopping, we intended on going to Red Lobster for lunch as we have a gift certificate to use. However, there was a 20 minute wait and I wasn't in the mood for that so we hit a drive-thru on the way home instead. I was really surprised about the wait. It's not like something special was going on yesterday. Maybe I'm just used to eating in Johnstown where you never have to worry about that. That said, we're going to go to the Red Lobster in Johnstown next weekend instead.
So, Altoona was a bust, but at least the rest of the weekend was good.
