It was still bitterly cold when my friend Sally and I headed to Old Town to Emerson Biggins, a restaurant and bar I had never been to before.
As with most sports bars, it was rather cheesy on the outside. Sorry, but sports bars don't really turn me on.
Located on a corner, Sally told me it had been here for a long time. Note Sally has a new "shoe" on her right foot. This is NOT the foot she had the toe removed. Now it seems she has problems with this foot, too.
Inside, it looked like many restaurant/bars Sally drags me to. This one had FOUR separate rooms and a bar in the middle.
You can see the bar on the left side of the photo just past the brick pillars. To the far back right (hidden by a hallway) is another room. I was most intrigued by that amazing copper ceiling,
and of course the wheat shock, Wichita State's mascot. There was some tribute to Wichita State (WSU) in every room, but I failed to take photos.
As with most of these places, it's hard to get photos of the pictures on the wall, due to the dim lighting and the many, many televisions, all playing something different (sport related, of course), depending upon where you sat.
I had to look long and hard to find something vegetarian. After all, this IS beef (and wheat) country. Not the best photo, but I decided on an apple walnut salad and Sally chose
As usual, we ordered water with our meals.
I thought Sally dressed very appropriately for this sports bar, wearing a tee shirt from the 2014 WSU basketball season. I failed to get a photo of my salad, but it wasn't all that good, anyway. Sally's patty melt fell apart and she ended up eating it with her fork. Neither of us was particularly pleased with the choice we had made. Both our meals were slightly under $10.00.
Now it's time to share your drink of choice today. Is it a mug, cup, something old, something new, maybe even a teapot? Is it a photo, or maybe digital, hybrid, or traditional art? Or were you out and about enjoying a fun meal? Whatever you choose, please join us for T this week by posting your link below. Then Bleubeard, Squiggles, the T Stands for Tuesday gang, and I will be by to share whatever you are offering.
