All the college kids, including one of mine, are returning to Bakersfield this week for Thanksgiving.
My youngest, Colleen, is back from the University of Arizona.
When she/they come home, my wife & I want to take them to all their favorite places. For Colleen that's Akira's Japanese Restaurant, Jake's Tex-Mex & Dewar's.
We're heading to lunch at Akira's today and we'll be having dinner at Jake's (followed by desert at Dewar's).
Kids who grow up in Bakersfield can't wait to get OUT. My kids are no different. But, I can see, when we visit their favorite places, how important this city is to them.
Welcome back students!
