Red Robin cuts back to red and blue.

Yesterday, we went to eat at Red Robin, my son's fave restaurant, where he always has the Clucks and Fries (chicken tenders and french fries). Red Robin is a Seattle chain, with a large part of its business marketed for kids. It welcomes birthday parties, where the waiters sing its unique birthday song, and it has the Red Robin in costume — who, just like Chuckie Cheese, scares the bejesus out of the little kids. My youngest daughter, who these days is sometimes a kid and sometimes an adult when it comes to menus, got a kid's menu. You know, with word puzzles, tic-tac-toe layouts, mazes, and figures to color in. It used to come with a pack of 4 crayons — red, blue, yellow and green. Yesterday it had a pack of two — red and blue.
