When I think of a brick, what do I visualize? Of course there's the typical brick used for construction, a gold brick that would be worth a fortune at today's prices, and a brick of marijuana that some would highly prize. Then there's one of my personal favorites... a brick of cheese!
We have a restaurant/watering hole here in Odessa called The Barndoor Steak House that's been in operation for over fifty years. They serve an entire brick of cheese (pictured above), and a small loaf of warm bread at the beginning of each meal. Guests are free to slice and eat as much of the cheese as they'd like before their dinner arrives, and additional bread will be served if desired. Both are DELICIOUS! I could easily make a meal of the bread and cheese alone, but the steaks cooked on the open-flame grill in the dining room are also wonderful, the "haystack" of deep-fried shoestring onions is addictive, and Papa Bear can attest to the fact that they make the best chicken-fried steak around - it's nearly the size of a dinner plate! If you don't know what chicken-fried steak is, you are clearly not from Texas! :-)
This long-horn bull - or at least his head - is mounted above the doorway. That's a little unsettling to me, but common room décor in these parts.
