I was raised in San Francisco and lived in Lake Tahoe for 10 years and knew better than to eat where tourists eat because...well...most restaurants where tourists eat typically charge twice as much for food.
When we aren’t helping a customer find a Christmas tree, we mostly stand by the fire and talk about our latest medical issues. One guy got a new hip and is thinking about new knees. Another said he wakes up several times each night to go to the bathroom. The rest of us nod in solemn acknowledgement because we feel the pain.
