Good Food, Good People: Tarpy’s Roadhouse

So there we were, on our annual company retreat. One of the highlights of our year. A chance for the whole Here Comes The Guide staff to be together, get some hard work done, and just hang out.

The good news: we were at Woods Hole in Pebble Beach. Gorgeous location, comfortable home perfect for our retreat, right on the ocean. We were getting lots of good work done and enjoying each other’s company. 

Food catered (with love) by Tarpy's RoadhouseThe bad news: 5 of the 8 us, including me, were very sick. We had The Flu. I, for one, can’t remember being that sick.

Then, the most wonderful thing happened. Through the front door swooped the lovely staff from Tarpy’s Roadhouse, there to make our dinner. But more than that, they took care of us. They made us tea, they served us in front of the TV so we could watch Glee and they whipped up fantastic, comforting food: a salad with apples, pecans and gorgonzola, steak and garlic mashed potatoes, Chilean sea bass with a mango relish and, finally, strawberry shortcake—yum!

Yes, the food was great, but the love they delivered with it was just what this sniffly group needed. If they can perform that kind of miracle off-site, imagine what they can do at their very own location. Thanks, Tarpy’s!
