I never think of IKEA when I want to go shopping. When I do go to IKEA, I find out that it’s a lot of fun. The merchandise are quirky, and it’s actually very inexpensive. They even have a café which serves very reasonably priced food.
Karen, Sandy, and I decided to go there for dinner today. We did not realize that the café closed at 6 PM, but the bistro did stay open until 9:00 PM.I ordered three orders of the Swedish meatball plates, an order of the butternut squash and apple soup, and a side order of mac and cheese. With three sodas, the total came to $18. What a bargain!
After dinner we roamed around the IKEA store, and I ended up buying an orange carryon suitcase and a matching backpack for $65. Karen and Sandy ended up buying a bunch of knickknacks.
It was a nice way to spend a Thursday evening.
