This is an Olympic headline with no puns
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 in Around Townon
Thanks to my friend Toph Whisnant for buying my lunch today at Olympic Family Restaurant.
I met a group for lunch at Olympic and wondered on the way if it would be a cash-only establishment. Sure enough, the sign on the door indicated no checks or credit cards. Whisnant, who helped to organize this Tuesday lunch group I join, astutely brought $50 cash to cover anyone who didn't have cash.
He said he's charging 8.9 percent interest compounded hourly on his lunch loan, so I guess he's going to make out pretty well on that decision to bring $50 cash. I wonder if he will send my account to collection if I don't pay him right away. Toph is actually going to London for the Olympics (coincidence) in a couple of weeks, so maybe this is how he's financing the trip.
Oh, you might be wondering why there's a picture of breakfast food with this blog. Olympic serves breakfast all day. Big plus. When I learned this fact, I went straight for the breakfast portion of the menu.
Kielbasa with hash browns and eggs over easy with a Dr Pepper. Heck yeah!
This was my first trip to Olympic, which sort of explains why I didn't know it was cash-only. I'm pretty happy the lunch group chose it because I look forward to adding restaurants to my personal catalogue. I wonder how many years I'll have to write this blog before I've dined at every restaurant in town. Is it even possible?
One more bite: On a separate note, I found Taqueria El Crucero closed for breakfast this morning due to temporary air conditioning issues. But I also stumbled upon something very intriguing and possibly a Waco game-changer. There was a big green food trailer parked next to the restaurant. Is this the Crucero food truck? When will it launch? More on this story as it develops.
