Beer, brisket and football will all come together for Elixir’s BBQ kick off on Sunday, August 21.
Watch the NFL pre-season game between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Diego Chargers, all while enjoying a $10 all-you-can-eat buffet…
My dad saw this and was instantly entranced. $10. All you can eat! Football.
But I balked.
Hipsters. Alcohol. The loud bar scene. The casualness of it all. Uncomfortable chairs. Badly lit rooms.
I couldn’t imagine my parents in their early sixties enjoying a scene reserved for hipsters half their age. In an effort to compromise, I provided three alternatives—quiet expensive restaurants perfect for impressing and delicate cuisine that catered to their tastes. I thought about the very American culture here in the city and the casualness that took years of adjusting.
But it was a stern no over their phone in accented English I think it’s a better option and it’s the price we want.
In retort, I said, “I can’t be liable if you don’t have a good time. My liability is released upon acceptance.”
