    Derby Style Pie

    Derby Style Pie Unfortunately, the Kentucky Derby has been postponed this year due to the Coronoavirus. It will be run in September instead of May. But….that doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy his wonderful Derby Style Pie. When I was growing up, my Mama and Daddy had race horses.  Now they were pretty good, but of course never made it to the “Derby”.  My parents loved going to the track to watch our horses run.

    Senior & Not So Senior Discounts

When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 …get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your senior discount.) This incident prompted me to do some research,…
