While we were waiting for the ceiling paint to dry, R and I went to Jordan’s furniture in Reading to look at mattresses. If you have never been to Jordan’s, you should check it out. It’s the most bizarre furniture experience you will ever have. It’s like a theme park with couches and tables. There’s a trapeze school, an elaborate water fountain show and an IMAX theater. There’s also Fuddrucker’s and Richardson’s for food. As far as chains go, Fudderucker’s isn’t half bad; they will cook your burger to order on a buttered toasted bun. The toppings bar has lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickle, salsa and peppers. It’s not Bartley’s, but if you’re at Jordan’s, it’s not a bad choice.
The ice cream at Richardson’s is pretty good. They have a huge assortment of flavors and they scoop out enormous servings. I had a “small” with peach and totally turtle (vanilla with caramel, brownies and cashews) and it was probably two-thirds of a pint of ice cream. R had Almond Joy and mint chocolate chip. All the flavors were good. We sat, ate our ice cream and watched the people on the trapeze.
