The Way the Path Is Worn

“Wait on paving the college sidewalk until the students have well-trodden the paths.”

I took my lovely wife Sarah out to dinner at Johnny Carinos. When we entered we saw they had transformed the place from standard “booth and tables” dining to a microbrew tavern. This is an example of going with the flow of your customers.

Every time I went there, the deal was the bar! Wings for a quarter, well drinks $3, you name it, you could get it in the bar. The owner must have been seeing this path being trodden because he gave the people what they want and now it’s a tavern.
