Eating in Warsaw 101

How to have brunch in the “Paris of the East” in post Communist Poland. Or maybe it’s post capitalist.
We meet up at our favorite café at 12:30. Too late for breakfast, too early for lunch. A perfect time. No people, we thought. We walk up to the counter to read a sign that says, “Closed for a technical break”.
“What the hell does that mean?” I ask.
“It means we’re so busy that we can’t keep up so decided to close for 20 minutes. Maybe more.”
Hey, I wish I could try that excuse at work, don’t you? Interestingly, I’ve seen a lot more people at other times and it never “closed”.
Or how about this one at a Thai takeout just next door coincidentally, a couple of weeks ago. I finally got my order after waiting 30 minutes and I asked what took them so long. He said there were a lot of people. I looked around and counted 8. When I invited him to count along with me, he shrugged and walked away. Is it a coincidence that both of these people are in their early 20s?
Yeah, maybe it is post capitalist. That’s all folks! It’s back to the future!
