For those of you who happen to be in the Albuquerque, NM area, I recommend you go have some lunch at Tim’s Place, the world’s friendliest restaurant. Tim’s Place is unique for a lot of reasons, the first of which is that Tim likes to give hugs to all the patrons. So far, Tim has given out over 32,000 hugs since his restaurant opened in 2010. The second reason Tim and his place are so unique is that it is believed the Tim is the only person with Down Syndrome to own his own restaurant.
I was turned on to Tim’s story earlier this week and the only thing that disappoints me is that his only restaurant is in New Mexico. I’ve included the link to his restaurant below so you can learn more about Tim’s inspirational story. Browse his site, send him a wish, and if you’re ever out his way, stop in for a meal and a hug.
