We Dine On Visions With New Eyes

After working all day at the legendary (okay, maybe it's not exactly legendary, but it will be!) House of Heroes Comics and Games Day After Christmas Sale, the staff feasted at Red Robin for a post-sale celebration. For those that might not know, Red Robin is a loud sit-down burger joint, framed posters and photos covering every inch of wall space, unlimited steak fries, and you can substitute veggie patties on any sandwich for free (huge bonus). Anywho, it's a common restaurant, usually is quite occupied, and they play a plethora of friendly tunes through the loudspeakers. That last part is key here.

As we're mowing down on our burgers and fries (and I'm on my umpteenth iced tea), pop hits from the '80s serenade the establishment. Think of any radio pop song from the decade, chances are it played. As one song came to its end, the first note of the next started. From that very note, I thought, "What, The Misfits?! No, can't be." The song continued, "No way, it's not. Nope." Next thing I know, I'm mouthing the opening line, "This street we walk upon…"

I was in complete and utter disbelief. Cough/Cool was indeed playing at Red Robin. After those two minutes and a few seconds seconds of musical bliss, we went back to regular scheduled programming, with something like Duran Duran.

Moral of the story; if you go to Red Robin, you have a chance of hearing The Misfits. Even the smallest chance is better than none, right? Unreal.
