Drive into Sunrise Beach Village, and you’ll see the main areas of commerce. Real estate offices, a general store, a small strip mall called The Corner, and the local eatery. Today, as I drove home from a quick shopping trip in a neighboring town, Mosca’s Restaurant & Bar caught my eye.
“The end is near. Get some tonight.”
There’s a lot to like about Mosca’s Restaurant & Bar, but the sign never factored in. I dig the owners, and I’ve had some good foodie experiences with the restaurant. Coolest thing of all? They deliver. That’s just what a working writer needs when she’s hungry and doesn’t want to cook for herself and her daughter. Service with a smile, every darn time. Fresh, tasty sandwiches, soups, and groovy pasta. It really doesn’t get much better, or easier, when you’re looking for a bite while you write.
Perhaps Mosca’s is using their sign to lure locals in for a Rapture celebration. Maybe everyone in the restaurant will ascend together as they dine. Maybe Mosca’s just wants folks to get some of the menu in a pre-Memorial Day feast. Whatever the intention, I like Mosca’s style.
I’m not going into the whole Rapture debate. I will, however, be sucking down a Dos Equis seasoned with a squeeze of lime, sprinkled with sea salt, and a couple of jalapeno-stuffed olives dunked in, for good measure.
Get some tonight!
We hadn’t planned on bringing local Texas news to Big Grey Horse Media…well, not just yet. But with the Rapture snapping at our heels and the end of the world supposedly heralding in at 5 p.m. CDT this afternoon, this is the time to flavor the Horse with some Texas love.
And if the Rapture strikes in a few hours, you bet we will be rejoicing, Mosca’s style. Thanks for the shout-out, Mosca’s!
