Second Chance Saloon

Since many of my blogging cohorts have tried Second Chance Saloon in Oakland Mills and they seemed to like it, I thought I would give it a shot. Overall, I liked the place and I will definitely go back. My wife and I split the spinach and artichoke dip, which was excellent. I had a Portobello mushroom burger, which was not on the menu, but was also excellent. I was concerned that since my entrée was not on the menu, that there would be mass confusion and it would take forever to bring it to me. My fears turned out to be unfounded, as the service was pretty quick. My wife was not totally disappointed in her salad, but was not impressed either. As they build the menu, I am sure she will find something good.

One neat idea that I saw there was a book exchange, which I have never seen in a restaurant before. You can drop off a book and/or pick up a book. There were mostly children’s books in the rotation, including the classic Dr. Suess book “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish” which we read while waiting for our food.

Also, there was free (or at least unprotected) Wi-Fi!

Isn't anyone going to say anything about this: http://explorehoward.com/news/14696/columbia-woman-81-gets-six-month-jail-term/

It may not be what it seems. When HC animal control people get involved, animals get euthanized - they think it's more humane to kill the animal than to give it to someone who will make the animal safe, healthy, and happy.

Because these people are involved, it's hard to say whether the 50 cats actually had to be euthanized, or if the animal 'advocates' just did away with them.

Is Second Chance Saloon related at all to the Last Chance Saloon? And whatever happened to that place?
