The weather wasn't bad this evening, so I went out a little further to bag cache find #9500. I went for Baby Bird NJ in Pompton Plains. It is in the garden of the Best Western Regency House hotel. The white gazebo looks like it might be used for wedding photography so access to the cache may be restricted at certain times, but tonight, there was no such problem. The cache description also mentions the smell of chicken cooking. That would be the nearby KFC, visible in this picture.
After that, I went to Willowbrook Mall to take a look around. I hadn't been there since last year but it really hasn't changed much. Still mostly uninteresting. Then came the real reason for this little trip: salad bar at Ruby Tuesday. To get the salad bar, I picked the quiche combo this time, keeping in mind that real programmers don't eat quiche. :) I should've gone to Ruby Tuesday at Garden State Plaza instead though. The one at Willowbrook Mall is slow to assign seating even when there are empty tables. I should've remembered what happened at last year's Crazy 8s geocaching event at this Ruby Tuesday. We had to wait far too long for service and some of us actually left the restaurant to eat at the food court.
