Thanks. Good to hear, really.

From reading psych books, I do understand that most folk of my personality sort are not "natural" dancers. Do not recall a girl ever brave enough to say the same.

Will suggest you try ballroom dancing. Ignore the stale folk. Just focus on the kind of forgotten part of the dance - learning to move in concert with your partner. Much like the meaningful part of real life. That form of dance is about cooperation, and learning to know your partner. (For the guy, learning to lead, for the girl, learning to follow. Both require care and practice.)

... and practice. Took quite a number of lessons before I could (mostly) move in time with the music. :)

The folk here seemed a bit thrown off by us when I showed up with my son (in his usual scruffy plaids), his girlfriend, and my three-year-old grandson. The time was off-peak, so they were not at all busy. We got seated in the back, away from the few customers present. ... hmmm ... That said, the waiter (Rickie?) did make a real effort to be very helpful. My son was especially fond of the pork-belly burger, from a prior visit. I was less impressed. (Not really a criticism. OK ... just not to especially memorable.) We will be back. They passed the fries test. Fried potatoes are a cheap, simple food. Easy to get right. Easy to get wrong. Most places get it wrong. This place got it right! That strongly suggests a kitchen focused on doing things right. I look forward to seeing if there is something else on their menu, more to my taste, done with equal care.

If you have reason to be in the area (Fringe Festival!!), this out-of-the-way place is a nice relaxed diversion. Funky old house with an outdoors patio on a quiet side-street, very good food, and friendly folk. If you are looking for pretension, this is the wrong place. If you are looking for a cheap meal, this is the wrong place. If you are looking for a relaxed meal with very good food, this is the right place. I try to go here pretty much every time I am in the area. :)

Went to Woody's as my son had a very positive impression of the (original) Huntington Beach location. First, they have a huge menu, that seems somewhat random - no clear impression at what they are good. My son ordered an omelet, but did not want to finish. (He is in the Marines, and is not easily discouraged.) I had a burger - which was good - but the fries were old, dried out, and had an off-flavor. Servers were cheerful, but never checked to see if we needed refills. Seems like another instance of a franchise without enough skill in the kitchen.

To be clear, this is a place to hang out with the aging suburban "bikers" crowd. You do not go here for the food. The food is cheap, edible, indifferent, at best average. Mainly this place is a particular sort of fashion statement. Weekend "rebels" with new leather and shiny motocycles. Bit of a disappointent. I like scruffy joints that serve good food, and this place is very local.
