The Restaurant

In author extraordinaire Brad Steiger’s book, GHOSTS, RESTLESS SPIRITS, AND HAUNTED PLACES, he reports a frustrating Alternate Reality spacetime slip as experienced by a couple.  (See pp. 440-441.)

In the early summer of 1987, Sam and Clara were traveling to Amarillo, Texas, on a business trip.  Shortly after midnight, they decided to stop to eat at a quaint, rustic-style restaurant that neither of them had even noticed on previous trips to the region.

They remembered that the food was prepared in an excellent down-home country style, and that the waitress, the cook, and even the other customers were so friendly in a sincere manner that Sam and Clara truly meant their promise that they would stop back again.
“And we tried to do exactly that on our return drive,” Sam said, “but that great little down-home restaurant was nowhere to be seen.  We even looped back a couple of times, thinking we might somehow have driven on by.  We even got into an argument, each of us insisting that we remembered exactly where it was.  imagesWe just couldn’t find it, and since the hour was getting very late, we drove on.”
Because their business required a number of return visits to Amarillo, Sam and Clara traveled that route on three consecutive weekends, each time keeping a watch for the restaurant with the wonderful cooking, but it seemed as though it had simply vanished.
“Since then, we have driven that route a dozen or more times,” Sam said, “but we never again found that friendly little restaurant.”
