OMG I was looking for gas at 280/380 when a Poutine eating dinosaur jumps out of nowhere – El Camino Real at Sneath Lane across from Chase.

Turns out this station has a lot more than gas and shriveled hot dogs around metal rollers. Citizens, meet the future! Presentation Planet Hangry – The first herbal market in North America.

Even the car wash has a soul.

Don’t forget your free ice cream on the way out. 🙂
