A Wacky Wednesday.

I made it back safely from my business trip to Nebraska!

My boss and I flew in to Lincoln on Wednesday morning and then drove 90 minutes southwest to Fairmont, NE where our plant is located. I have to say that more companies should have business in Nebraska. That way you can be assured the employees will work late every evening since there aren’t a lot of distractions to take them away from business. In fact, the hotel where we stayed made the Bates Motel look like a Hilton.

As we wrapped up the work day on Wednesday evening, we asked some of the office staff if they had any recommendations for fine dining. We were told to check out Bubba's Anytime Strang CafĂ© in Strang, NE (population: 32 38!). And the timing of our trip couldn’t have been any more fortuitous as it was Wacky Wing Wednesday at Bubba’s that evening!! What they do is spread a plastic table cloth (colored Nebraska Cornhusker Red, of course) and proceed to dump buckets of chicken wings and fries on the table. And if you ask for utensils, they look at you like you’ve sprouted a third eye. Anyhow, once you’re done with that fine cuisine, they fold up the bones in the table cloth and throw it away. Man, where was a place like this in Minnesota when I was a kid?

As we left Bubba’s, we walked by a table of five 20-something gals who polished off two beer towers and were starting a third.

Just another April evening in the Cornhusker state!
