No Tri-Tip Sandwiches

Today I hooked up with rosminah and someone she calls ‘the youngin.’ rosminah had promised to take us to go try some tri-tip sandwiches at the Cold Spring Tavern (est. 1876), an old stagecoach stop up in the mountains above Santa Barbara. Unfortunately due to the poor weather in the morning, they hadn’t been able to startup the outdoor grill, and so no tri-tip today. 🙁 Instead we had to make due with huge chili dogs made with the Tavern’s wonderful chili.

For dinner my dad and I went to Piatti’s. Since I had a late lunch, I ended up not being able to finish.

And for today’s archive scan, here’s a scan of an original invitation to Abraham Lincoln’s second inauguration ball on March 4, 1865:

Here’s a Library of Congress copy of the invitation.
