Things I’m Finally Getting Around To: The Egyptian

You know those people who have done (and are experts in) everything, eaten at every restaurant (both when it was new and recently), and knew all about every local political scandal (before it happened)?  I’m not one of those people. In fact, I’m totally fine with admitting that there are more than a few local institutions that I just haven’t gotten around to visiting yet.

I was thinking about this today at lunch when I was seated in one of the squeaky, red booths at Campisi’s: The Egyptian, chowing down on a combo plate of spaghetti & meatballs, ravioli, and manicotti. Surely, I’m not the only one. Even the most native among us has some Dallas standby that they’ve never gotten around to visiting—like the Christmas windows at Neiman’s downtown—or maybe you finally got around to having a sandwich at Jimmy’s and can’t believe it took you so long. No judgment.

It’s Friday afternoon. Let’s procrastinate together in the comments section…

  1. Never been to Fuel City. Never been to Goff’s or Keller’s. Would like to try that famous snow cone place, but can’t remember the name.

  2. Aunt Stelle’s, Katy, is the name of the sno-cone shop. And Scagnetti isn’t missing too terribly much.

  3. Thank you, G. David! I did a little sleuthing and found it. It was worth the trip. Will definitely be a regular stop, post-zoo.
