Tomato bisque, the first course. Hey, are we in a Burger King? Why are those people wearing paper crowns?
It’s been a decade since I went to Medieval Times with Michael Musto and Lynn Yaeger. I wrote a feature, but it was killed. Now some friends (including FiTR San Francisco correspondent Tracy Van Dyk — @tracyjane) find themselves there, and are sending me back pictures of the awful food that’s part of the package. And it claims to be authentically medieval. And, yeah, I’m King Arthur.
Main course: “oven-roasted potato, spare rib, herb-basted potato”
Dessert, listed on the menu only as “Dessert.” But what is it?
