Powder on Scapegoat
Watched an interesting situation unfold in the Creekside Restaurant at lunch today. The place was basically empty, as usual. A dad and 3 young kids came in, and dad ordered 2 hotdogs, one with fries and one with poutine, for the kids. About 15 minutes later, he was joined by another dad, and they ordered a beer. They drank their beer, which took another 15 min. Then they decided they had to leave. And yet... their hot dogs never arrived. Twice they asked about them. Twice the waitress said "I'll check" but never got back to them. Finally the manager intervened, apologized, and comped their beer. 

How long does it take to make a hot dog? How about fries? Apparently more than 30 min.

Last year, I gave some reviews of the restaurants at Sunshine. While I still recommend the Creekside, I've noticed the service this year isn't as good as it used to be.
