American Meat Institute, 1947
Nice title, right? I am sure I got your attention with that.
Today was Gary’s birthday, and I am a total loser that I did not capitalize on it and do some little heartfelt birthday thing for Time to Cry Tuesday so everyone could send him their good wishes. Please feel free to jump out of the lurking mode and send him a shout out a day late.
For his big day we let him pick the restaurant. This guy, who is the picture of low-fat eating 364 days a year, jumped out of the box and craved a good old- fashioned, testosterone boosting slab of meat.
We walked into the steak joint and quickly noticed that my girlfriend and I were amongst maybe 6 women in the entire restaurant. Tuesday night in the land of steak was all men. Table after table of guys chewing the fat, seated around overloaded plates of meat, meat, meat. Kind of an odd scene for me. It almost took on the feeling of some old time movie.
A primal, back to basics birthday for the man.
Happy birthday Gary, hope you enjoyed your meat!
