Ribs and Music

We went to the Texas Roadhouse last yesterday evening. We have eaten there several times, mostly because someone of our family wanted to eat there for their birthday.

I ordered ribs and a baked sweet potato. They were both good. The ribs were falling off the bones tender with a delicious sauce. It was literally finger licking good.

Also there they had blaring country and western music. After a while, it kind of fitted in... with all the waitresses in their cowboy attire and all. We recognized the voice of Marietta's own Travis Tritt singing a selection. And also we heard Willie Nelson, which should be expected because I think he is part owner of the Texas Roadhouse chain.

Once, I saw all the waitresses and waiters, and maybe a couple of buspersons getting together in a bunch and I expected them to go marching to a table clapping their hands and singing Happy Birthday, but they didn't. Instead, they formed a long line down the main aisle of much of the restaurant and started line dancing. They clapped, they did two-steps, and everything else you do while line dancing. It was entertaining to watch.

What was even more entertaining was watching an elderly lady slowly walking trying to work her way around all the line dancers, in a polite non-abusive nervously smiling and nodding way.
