Aloha and godspeed, my sweet sliders

Last Wednesday night was a momentous occasion. (So momentous that I couldn't stop trembling to get decent pictures.) It was the last night of the Shed at Glenwood's weekly $3 slider night.

There was a funereal ambiance in the restaurant. Among those grieving was our server Chris (right), who wore his mourning outfit for the occasion. When I went to the restroom, a man was weeping by the sink. I asked him if he needed support. He said it was just severe allergies. But I knew what was really going on.

A woman at a nearby table on the patio had her dog with her. He seemed lethargic and I asked his owner if he was OK. She said he was old and lazy. But I knew what was really going on. Our pets sense and share our feelings of loss.

Someone else said he would never be able to think of Margaret Thatcher's funeral without recalling that it was on the same day we lost slider night.

Wednesday is the restaurant's fifth-anniversary celebration and Chef Todd Richards will debut his new Wednesday night "Southern Spread" meal. It will star his fried chicken, which, in fact, filled my last slider (pictured) - a tasty, bittersweet aloha to a weekly ritual with which I've enjoyed torturing my following of haters for several years.
