Since I don’t really know very much about the city I just moved to, I’m looking at lists online for things to do here. Found a nice one that’s pretty helpful. It shows restaurants, museums, historical stuff, all with phone numbers and websites.
And then just one of the items here is basically “ask an old person for their pecan pie recipe.” Not specific style of pecan pie, not a specific person, just go ask a random stranger about pie! Is this city known for its pie? Is this some coded message? If I ask an old person about pecan pie, will I be initiated into some cult?
