Is there really such a thing as a $2 mimosa? Really?
Big Red Car here on a chilly Saturday in the ATX.
“How chilly, Big Red Car?”
“We’re talking hot tubbing tonight, dear readers.” [Just replaced the hot tub heater and was looking for an excuse to use it anyway.]
So, The Boss likes to breakfast out on a Saturday morning. Early.
He’s got his favorites — Counter Cafe, CafeExpress, Taco Deli, Texas French Bread, Cisco’s, the Scottish Restaurant (McDonald’s), and Kerbey Lane Cafe.
Kerbey Lane has several locations, but his favorite is the one on the other side of the street from the University of Texas.This location is always filled to overflowing with studenten, ‘rents, and youngish folks.
The waiters are all tatted, pierced, color haired (or shaved heads), and friendly.
They have great blueberry pancakes (not as good as Counter Cafe, but damn good just the same), and know their way around a breakfast taco. Serving up a great breakfast taco is not an insignificant accomplishment, particularly, before the sun comes up. Great people watching and there is always a wait. [They sit across from 52,000 students. So, yes, there can be a wait. But, not at 5:00 AM. Only cops and The Boss then.]
But, today, The Boss learned something incredible.
KERBEY LANE CAFE HAS $2 MIMOSAS — EVERY DAY!Hello, America, where can you get a $2 mimosa? KERBEY LANE CAFE!
So, The Boss had a traditional mimosa (champagne, orange juice) and a cranberry mimosa (you guessed it, champagne and cranberry juice). We did not count the total number of mimosas, but … well, we will not go there. Let’s keep it light and airy today, shall we?
The moral of this story is — keep your damn eyes open because you never know what you may see. Like a $2 mimosa. Every day.
