My roommate eats out a lot; lunch at work is always out and about and on weekends he’ll go get breakfast somewhere. This morning he was down in Parker at Waffle House, for example.
I’m more of a cheapskate and tend to just buy groceries and fix food at home, with the occasional splurge for something nice.
Anyway, he mentioned this afternoon that it looked like “Hickory House” down there had succumbed to the controllavirus and they appeared to be closed.
That bummed me out, because when I lived in Parker Hickory House was a routine venue… When anyone came to visit, that’s where I took them for dinner — because it was amazing.
The news sent me scurrying to the Internet and I’m happy to report that they’re still open. Apparently the place just looks closed…
To do my part to ensure they remain open, I ordered to-go for us and sent the roomie back to Parker to pick it up.
So, tonight’s repast is jalapeño cheddar sausage, baked beans with brisket, corn on the cob, and garlic toast… And it’s just as amazing as it’s always been. 🙂
