Every year we meet our friends for a farewell breakfast buffet at Maraih's at the closing of the annual motorcycle rally in Ocean Shores. My husband and I agree, it's a great social gathering, but the food leaves much to be desired. Buffet has bacon, sausage, eggs, all the usual fare. Fruit is canned, pasteries are store bought. Service is hometown friendly. But tradition will live on, and we'll be there again next year.
