A month or two ago, we were going to a Council meeting in Coalinga. We stopped for dinner at the Red Robin restaurant near Harris Ranch, off of I-5. On the door was a sign that read something like "Please excuse our crickets.". And sure enough, there were crickets all over the restaurant. Strange.
So we get to the council chambers, and sure enough, crickets were hopping around the room during the session.
No one said anything or acted like this was out of the ordinary.
The next trip down, two weeks later, there was no sign of crickets.
