So, I know I said my next blog would be about the dangers of disability predators, but I had an experience yesterday that I just had to share.
My girlfriends and I were going to go out for dinner down the coast. It was an unbelievably gorgeous day and we wanted to have dinner outside on or near the beach. We decided on a popular place on the beach and decided to call ahead to restaurant A (I’ve decided not to identify said restaurants) to check if they had outdoor seating and the accessibility of it. The first restaurant said they only had ONE wheelchair accessible table outdoors and they did not take reservations. Yes, we could have sat inside, but we were insistent on being outside. Disappointed but not defeated, we called another restaurant (B) we had heard good things about. We got a yes on the outdoor seating and, after a slight hesitation, another yes on the accessibility. Score! We were on our way.
