Am I Losing My Mind?

I had dinner at the Ruby’s at the Irvine Spectrum last night, along with my wonderful colleagues here at the OC Metblogs.

Now, I asked for a grilled cheese sandwich, and a side of Frings. You know, that delectable mixture of fries and onion rings.

The waitress said that wasn’t an option for a side, and I could only get it as a separate appetizer.

Now, maybe some early Alzheimer’s is kicking in, but I swear I have ordered Frings as a side to my main entree before and even though I was charged extra, I got what I wanted.

Can anyone tell me if my memory is correct, or am I lying to myself?

    I have never ever heard of ‘Frings’. Do you use a SPORK or a FOON to eat them?

    Sounds like you had an overzealous server trying to earn a bigger tip. She should’ve charged you the up-sell for onion rings and substituted some of the rings with cheaper fries.

    Ruby’s has gotten really expensive. I find myself going there less often.

    I think you have Ruby’s confused with Johnny Rockets. I think that is where they have the Frings. I love me some Frings!

    No, I don’t eat at Johnny Rockets. Actually, I ate there once and have never eaten there again, and that was probably over fifteen years ago.

    But yes, it is Ruby’s that has the Frings…
