Our first couple of days in Good we had been craving a great roast hen with roast potatoes in hen fats and all of the flavors dripping from the hen.

What we obtained was 2 nights of consuming some surprisingly good lasagna from an Italian restaurant off the road from 3 Butchers, in a 3 block area, that was closed for the next causes:

  1. They’re on trip.
  2. They’re off however on Tuesday which is a moot level as a result of they’re all the time closed on Tuesday
  3. They was once open, however after 4 or 4:30, which suggests they’d usually be open but it surely’s a Covid challenge or staffing challenge, so now they shut at 1 for lunch and by no means reopen except it is a Friday or Saturday.
  4. They had been open however after 4 or 4:30 and I am nonetheless fortunate as a result of it is Wednesday which is the primary day of the week after they shut at 1.
  5. It was open, and it was after 4, but it surely was proper after 4 and this butcher did not open till 4:30.
  6. They open at 8am however the chickens will not be prepared till later they usually shut at 1, so there’s a lengthy line.
  7. They open at 6:30, however the hen will not be prepared till later, which does not actually matter since you did not order that early (they usually shut at 1).
  8. It is often open, but it surely’s Saturday and closes at 7 as an alternative of seven:30.
  9. They shut at 1 for lunch, but it surely’s a Wednesday, so they may shut at midday, or they may shut at 1:00, relying on their definition of “midi.”
  10. Or in your fifth or sixth try on the fourth day, you will be out of luck and get your final roast hen and potatoes. Phew (and sure, it was price it).

Like my pal Gary stated, in terms of butchers, you have to be a genius (or have a ramification sheet in Excel) to recollect who’s closed and after they’re closed. they’re topic to vary as a result of their hours are written in chalk in case they modify their minds. Holidays are often valued on a bit of paper, as a result of when you’re gone there isn’t any turning again.

Please observe that I did not say open, as a result of that could be a fleeting factor – ethereal and melancholic just like the scent of a well-roasted chicken wafting within the breeze.
