The Stir Crazy Files – Episode 63

This just dawned on me…. Holy crap….

I’m having a crazy day here at the home office. Busy. My 1:00PM lunch break didn’t start until 2:45. My 16 hour fast lasted 17:45 today. Crazy!

As I eat my PB&J with a side of Ritz crackers I am listening to the Puck Soup podcast. Our favorite hockey writer podcast is having an in depth discussion of appetizers. One of them just said he loves going to a tex-mex place and having a big bowl of chips and salsa.

So do I, I thought. Minus the salsa, of course. That’s when it hit me.

I haven’t been to The Border Cafe in over seven months.

As if the existence of Covid-19 wasn’t bad enough, now I realize that I haven’t been to my favorite restaurant in over half a year. The entire Spring and the entire Summer passed without me having a single bite of Tejas chicken, or their blackened chicken, or the French quarter chicken, or the tortilla chips.

Good lord, what has the world come to?

Border Cafe

We haven’t been here in ages. My former favorite restaurant is a bit of a chaotic mess today, but I’m hoping to get me some Tejas chicken.



No Tejas chicken for us. We walked out. The restaurant was half empty and they made us take a pager. M’kay. The next couple of groups that came in also got pagers. After that, while we were standing there patiently waiting to get a table in the half empty dining room, they started seating people as they came in. We walked out. To hell with them.
