Happy Ides of March everyone
Happy Ides of March folks.  The best thing about the Ides of March (March 15) is that it means that the snow in the Northeast is about to melt away and the daffodils will soon be pushing their way through the soggy, chilly soil. I guess the worst thing abou...

The restaurant was dirty, the staff untrained, and the manager was out having a cigarette while no cleaning was being done, and there were no customers in store except for me. When I asked for a meatball sandwich with provolone cheese, the trainee/server said, "We don't have any provolone." The manager finally came in and found some provolone and made my sandwich......sadly she made it with stale bread ! ! ! It was hard and tasteless. EAT STALE & DIRTY at SUBWAY IN DENNIS PORT
