Hauntings in my City

As a travel enthusiast I love to learn about the history of the places that I visit. Sometimes that history includes the local hauntings and other lore's. There is one local place in my city that is extremely haunted. Its a basque restaurant and many have reported apparitions. One was reported by the cook at the restaurant. He was busy preparing for the day when out of the corner of his eye he thought stood the manager, it wasn't. When he turned to speak to who he thought was the manager he found a woman who he had never seen before standing in the doorway, for seconds and then gone.

At this same restaurant a friend of mine had her own experience. We were all seated at our table when my friend felt a brush of wind run by her shoulder, she ignored it, thinking it was the waitress, she felt the wind again this time followed by a tap on her shoulder. She turned and looked startled. We all asked her about it and she said, 'Where did the waitress go?' We checked the area for drafts and vents but could find none. We later asked our waitress about it and she confirmed that the place was haunted and then told us the story about the cook.

Sometimes when you least expect it, you find yourself part of local lore.
