Last night we went to see Jeff Dunham's Spark of Insanity Tour. We went with another couple and had plans to eat dinner before hand. Its all planned, we will go to our favorite Mexican place in Poky that we have been eating at for over 25 years. Since its in Poky, we only get there about 6-7 times a year, and its been a few months since our last visit, end of January. So we pull in and there are no cars, and I'm thinking wait a minute its not Sunday, nor is it September so they should be open.
They are not, a big sign is in the window, out of business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Close to 30 years The Pilot House has been in business and now its gone, no more Ricks Pizza. I cannot believe it. I took a picture and sent it to my brother and his family in Germany, their reaction will be the same, shock and such disappointment.
Back to our plans, so we had to come up with a plan b and make it quick cuz we needed to be at Holt Arena (the mini dome) by 7. So we thought okay Buddy's Italian, but the line was out the door. Now we have like 20 minutes, so McDonalds here we come. Such a letdown, not to mention just icky.
We did make it in time and laughed for hours. My jaw aches from laughing so hard. If you have a chance to see Jeff Dunham in concert or watch him on Comedy Central do it!
Peanut is my favorite dude!!
Even with the great entertainment, I cannot get over the Pilot House closing. Not just awesome food, that in itself will be missed greatly, but the fun we had going with family, laughing and joking, catching up. It was a meeting place to gather with family. I'm glad we went in January, but to think we will not go there anymore.
So sad.
Farewell Pilot House and Ricks Pizza, you will be missed!
