Mondays are usually so dull, but my friend Carmen was off work, and we decided to head on over to The Faust for dinner. I found it online when checking for good places to scarf down some German food, and when I saw the name of it, I knew we had to go there. As many of you know, one of my engaging Checkpoint series characters shares the same last name, Herman Faust, the dry-witted Direktor of the Landeskriminalamt (LKA). I felt it was a sign, one that screamed "Come here!"
There are stories of soldiers using this grand old dame as the place where they made their wedded pledges of faith and committed themselves to their brides (in a honeymoon suite) before going off to war. I imagine many a bride may have conceived their first child there, and many more waited for their new husbands to return, some possibly waiting forever, never again reuniting.
