My only viable dumpster diving option were the small garbage bins at the front of the establishment used for customers grabbing takeout. I dug deep but found nothing of value. Every bone was cleaned to a masterful degree.
Of course, I fasted for almost a full 24 hours before Day One, just as I’ve always done pre-buffet for as long as I could remember. This resulted in me tapping my credit card impatiently on the counter as the waitress explained the procedure in slow motion. She finally showed my girlfriend and I to our seats and we were left to our own devices. I didn’t even sit down.
