Chicken, shrimp, and andouille sausage jambalaya. Well, Cajun calling! What’s better than a delicious, hearty mix of chicken, shrimp, andouille sausage, rice, and tasty goodies? Way back in 1975 a German group called the Silver Convention debuted a stellar disco song that had only eight, count them, eight words. You may have already guessed it: “Fly, Robin, Fly.” It was the first number one hit from a German group on the Billboard charts. What’s little known, though, is that one of the two composers (Sylvester Levay and Stephan Prager) had a boyhood friend they called Shrimpy (mickrig in German). “Fly, Mickrig, Fly” as a way of poking fun, didn’t have the right ring. Good thing they had another friend nick-named Rotkehlchen (because he liked Batman). You guessed it, “Robin.” Well, “Fly, Rotkehlchen, Fly” didn’t have the right feel, so they opted for the English. Hey, dance the rest of the week away, jambalaya is on the way.

Fantastic Thursday: Shrimp with creamy or fried grits ($15). Shrimp on baked garlic cheese grits (crispy or baked). Shrimp lovingly cooked with chopped veggies in a delicious sauce served over baked garlic cheese grits (either crispy or baked) will make you toot your horns up and down the street. Just one more tidbit of information about the Silver Convention. Truth is, Levay and Prager really wanted to call the song, “Run, Rabbit, Run.” Maybe they were John Updike fans, but they chose the right words (only eight), and with some string synth, a 4/4 beat, and a few horns thrown in the mix, they created a disco legend, “Fly, robin, fly! Up, up to the sky!” Come join us for some wonderful food, we’d love to see you!

Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees admits, “I never really did any disco dancing.” Well, in the words of one of his own songs, “You should be dancing…yeah!” Hit the horns, get the boogie on the floor.
