We were in Austin yesterday to have Gene's new Catrike serviced. It is one famdancy tricycle with full suspension and more. He says it is almost like riding in a Cadillac. While the trike was at the shop we went for lunch at Threadgill's North. Threadgill's has been around for many years. They advertise that they serve more vegetables than anyone else or some such. Famous for veggies and their chicken fried steaks. I had steamed asparagus and quick fried Brussels sprouts for my sides. A bit overcooked, but different. They have southern grits and fried okra, etc., so maybe overcooking is a requirement for a southern restaurant.
Back to art:
The decorating tends to be music oriented as they have live music on the weekends and whenever they can. A shelf around the wall where we were seated in a booth has old posters and radios for the most part. There was a trombone and in an inspired moment I remembered that musical something was on the list. Yay....
I got out my phone and sketched. I didn't think about portrait or landscape views until I was underway and we were not staying much longer, so what you see is what you get. I couldn't see more of the slide part anyway.
Gene's Terratrike will now be for sale. It runs great, dependable and a very nice trike. Make him an offer!
