Christen and I have been travelling happily through Northern California. We are staying at an incredible inn in McCloud, California at the moment. We went out for a hike this afternoon. After returning to the car after hike of about 7 miles near the foot of Mt Shasta (yeah it’s amazing here), we were hungry. Really hungry. Because McCloud is unfortunately lacking in meal options, we ventured out to the town of Mt Shasta. We found a restaurant named Strings. We were oddly in the mood for some crazy southern style food but no luck finding anything. Strings is Italian and we all know you can’t really go wrong with Italian food so we go in and pig out hardcore. We ate more food by a long shot than we had at any previous meal this trip. I mean we ate everything. Normally I don’t polish off my plate at a restaurant, this time, I was using bread to get even the last of the marinara sauce.
Then something strange happens. After polishing off dessert the server comes over and informs us that our meal is covered. Some unknown party has chosen to pay for our meal. We have no idea why, who or anything. Just that we got a free meal. Now the bad news, we were so weirded out that we forgot to give our server a tip. Then we realize we didn’t have any cash to do it anyway. I feel bad about that. The meal all told was probably around $50 too.
Thank you to whoever you were who chose to give us a free meal, and to our server, sorry. We were preoccupied with the fact that some unknown stranger had just covered our meal that we forgot.Tags: California, free meal, hike, McCloud, McCloud Hotel, Mt Shasta, Strings Restaraunt
