The spoiled food due to the heater

Me and the family love chinese food, and we constantly go out to the local chinese places to eat at least once every week, but we have been going to the same locale for over a decade and we love it! But, sadly I can say, last weekend was a particularly horrible time, and the first bad experience we had in nearly a decade at this place, when we arrived, we found that their HVAC  system had gone out, however now you would think in the middle of the fall season this wouldn’t be a gigantic deal with the heating and cooling system not particularly working, and however, where we live in the southwest, in the fall it may as well be dead of summer! It was hotter than a furnace in the place when we walked in.We asked the manager what was going on, and we were told that the air conditioning was broken and they were trying to get it up and running again. I asked them if they called a certified heating and cooling specialist, they said they did not and that they had their own HVAC repair person there that works for them trying to fix it. I thought that was honest enough. We tried to have our meal, but it was just too darn hot just like a old gas furnace! We decided to just skip dinner and go for pizza instead. No air conditioning in any month out in this area of the world is not adequate! We really and truly needs our a/cs running at all times!
