Stop, Drive, Eat!
If you haven’t been to VP Square, stop everything you’re doing and go. The place is billed as Asian fusion. That used to mean a mishmash of flavors from the other side of the world. But VP has upped the ante in both taste and presentation.
Recently my group, that dines monthly—we call ourselves “Women Who Eat Out”—selected the tidy, spacious restaurant on Juniata, just off South Grand.
Wilma, who had discovered the place earlier, suggested getting a selection of appetizers to share. A good plan for nibbler such as we—though I regret not asking for a larger plate to keep the sauces from mingling.
I’ve not yet tried the entrees. Nor the Bento Box lunch sampler. That will require another trip—and soon!

When the Bill Came!!!
Our group always splits the tab evenly among ourselves—which servers always love to deal with. When our individual bills came, we were shocked! For the 5 of us (with appetizers and drinks), the evening came to about $16 each!
We often pay twice that much for our monthly soiree. What’s more, the appetizers were ample and promptly delivered; the tables generously spaced and servers bemasked.
Put this one on your bingo card.
Having money still in our pockets, we decided to drive farther down Grand to Ted Drewes. I especially enjoy their fresh peach ice cream this time of the year. Unlike their flagship spot on Chippewa, they are not as crowded. I was saddened to learn, that they are closing this weekend until next summer.
My server explained that the student employees were going back to school. Happily, the Chippewas location will maintain their regular schedule.
