when i told my friend K that i’ve never been to the cheesecake factory, she was flabbergasted. it’s apparently one of the more popular chain restaurants around here; i didn’t know that until about a couple of years ago when another friend corrected me. all the while i thought it just sold cheesecake! (my only other reference is from the show “the big bang theory.” one of the characters worked at the restaurant) anyway, that’s where K and T brought me for my birthday lunch 🙂 and i’m glad we went there. the food was great, the menu extensive. our server was great — though she didn’t wear the uniform penny wore on “big bang” — the ambiance was casual and friendly with lots of families.

but of course, you can’t go to the cheesecake factory without having dessert 🙂 according to K, that’s the rule!
