Return to Spats
Merkel and Myrtle returned to the dimly lit Spats recently. In his previous visit Merkel sampled the Baileys hot chocolate. This time he chose to have the standard hot chocolate. It was a Saturday night and the demand for seats was high but Merkel and Myrtle were seated quickly. The standard hot chocolate came in a tea cup and saucer with stainless steel pot. The tea cup was the sort Merkel remembers from his grandmother's house. It was constructed of fine porcelain with gilt edging and adorned with images of roses. In the saucer a marshmallow was provided. It was a fairly big drink and the pot kept it warm while Merkel sipped leisurely from the tea cup. It was a high quality Belgian chocolate. There was no froth or chocolate sprinkles, just lots of delicious chocolate. The drink cost $5.75.
