A Quick Visual Escape to One of the World's Most Amazing Restaurants

Remember the other day we were arguing about the insanity of living in a landlocked area at the edge of the desert when the Earth offers billions of miles of beautiful beaches? Don't fact check "billions," but the point is, damn, it's hot. And dry. Native plants are saying, "Fuck it. I'm out." Watering a lawn is just downright depressing (or is that just me).

Well, if you were just having that conversation with yourself again on the commute in to our humble little heat bubble, check out this seaside restaurant in the medieval town of Polignano a Mare, Italy. Just do it. Yes, it's like stabbing the dagger in your belly then twisting it for good measure. Fight pain with more pain.

From the DailyMail:

And if diners want to work up an appetite before the meal, they can meander through the narrow streets of the medieval town, built on sheer cliffs with scattered white buildings and natural caves.

They literally cut into a limestone cliff to create a restaurant cave on Italy's eastern coast (about where the heel of the boot is). There are no man-made walls. Tables are perched along a thin railing that overlooks the waves crashing on the rocks in the Adriatic Sea below. Soft lamps illuminate the cave at night.

Our escape is over now. We just landed back in DFW with a thud. Back to work now. Make us some money. Climb ladders. Bring bacon.
