After celebrating our anniversary by walking around Centennial Park in June, Betsy and I had lunch at Rotier’s restaurant.  Rotier’s is near the park, and serves some of the most delicious burgers I’ve ever had.  It’s not a fancy place, but it is a local favorite and is often crowded.

We wanted to have lunch at Rotier’s because it’s a special place for us.  We had lunch there on our second date back in 2001.  I don’t remember what I had to eat at that time, but our visit was memorable.

On that April date Betsy and I visited the interior of the Parthenon and the art museum.  Betsy, self-sufficient woman that she is, wanted to pay for her own admission, but I pointed out that going inside was my idea and I should pay.  It took some doing, but she finally agreed to let me pay for our admission.  However, Betsy absolutely insisted on buying our lunch.  So after leaving the Parthenon we headed to Rotier’s, which had been recommended to both of us.

After a delightful lunch, Betsy pulled out her credit card and went up to the cashier to pay.  She was politely informed that Rotier’s didn’t accept credit cards.  My Sweet Date put her credit card away and pulled out her checkbook — Rotier’s didn’t accept checks.

By this time I was having trouble keeping a straight face.  But we fortunately were able to come up with enough cash to pay for lunch.

We had no problems paying for our lunch on our anniversary.  Rotier’s now accepts credit cards.

    loved the 2nd date story. back in 93 by RE broker took 4 of us to lunch at the local French Cafe…. we ate and ate and had desserts that were 12.99 each. same thing happened, no check no cards just cash. the thing is i was the only one with cash, i had forgotten to stop and deposit by cash at the bank, at that time hubby was paid cash. we paid from my deposit and left and went to the bank for her to give it back to me.

    We get the same thing at work – people are astonished that we are a cash only business. I am still surprised at the number of people who do not have cash.
