Red Robin

Red Robin restaurant was originally called Sam’s. Then it was Sam’s Red Robin. Then just Red Robin. Now the original owners have opened up a chain of mediocre restaurants called Sam’s Tavern.

Maybe if I’d known that history before I ordered, I would have had a burger instead of a salad and have a better opinion of the food.

Dollhouses

Dollhouse’s used to be called baby houses and were built for adults.

“It was a diminutive 3-D enshrinement of all the owner’s worldly belongings, of his literal and figurative station in life.”

Charles Siebert in the article The Thorne Miniature Rooms printed in the 9/20/2015  The New York Times Magazine.
