Recently Sally and I visited Side Pockets, another restaurant and sports bar. This one is in a strip mall and features pool and billiards.
Somehow I knew it was a sports bar
without even seeing the sign.
This photo is deceiving (and Sally is out of focus) because it was very, very dark in the place. Sally wanted to sit at one of the tables with the high chairs, but I don't like height, and went looking for a better spot.
I picked the tables with the cozy chairs, but they were hard to move once you sat in them.
We ended up sitting in the chairs and pulling the table toward us after we had sat down. The table was much lighter than the chairs!
Although this place was nearly empty the day we visited, I bet it was jumping Sunday afternoon when the Wichita State Shockers (WSU WuShocks) played Kansas University (KU Jayhawks) in an NCAA match that was not even close. WSU was in the spotlight when they played KU in a game televised on CBS Sunday afternoon. Seventh ranked WSU won over number two ranked KU 78-65. For those of you who are NOT basketball fans, it was the first time these two Kansas teams have played in the playoffs since 1982. For those of you who live in countries other than the US, I apologize, but my (final) alma mater pride is definitely showing. Although I don't normally watch college basketball, this game made me extremely happy to be a Wichita State alumnus.
But now it's time to get back to T.
You don't need to ask, because our drink of choice was water. Sally even gave me her lemon, so I had a double lemon water (grin).
I looked far and wide, and if I wanted to only get a basket of french fries, that was about the ONLY vegetarian offering on the menu, except a few appetizers.
Sally got a hamburger and fries of some kind, and I got the chicken fried chicken. It was either that, or go hungry.
While we waited, I showed Sally that we were entitled to a free game of pool with our lunch, but she was not interested in playing a game of pool while we waited on our food.
Instead, we waited and talked for what seemed like forever for our food to arrive. Needless to say, she was far happier with her meal than I was with mine. In fact, I brought most of mine home (minus the mashed potatoes, veggies, and toast, where the chicken fried chicken languished in the fridge for several days. Sad, but true.
Now it's time to tell your tale for this T on Tuesday. Were you out and about, or did you stay in and enjoy something hot (in the northern hemisphere) or cold (in the southern hemisphere)? Maybe you chose to share some drink related art, or photos. Maybe you created a scrapbook page, or worked in a journal or altered book, and are sharing either a traditional, hybrid, or digital piece with us. Maybe you just grabbed a cup of water and shared your day with us, or found a video that involved tea or coffee or some other drink of choice. Whatever the case, please link below, so we can visit. Bleubeard wants to remind you that photos do not have to be taken on Tuesday, or even this month, if you choose.
