Open and shut

Many are the central dining establishments closed for lunch today, all apart from those whose custom it is not to open on Mondays. Matt’s will be going strong all afternoon, but an astonishing number of other places are battened down. I’m happy to know that the Farm to Market Grocery on South Congress will be open today until five o’clock and open tomorrow, Christmas Day, from 10 am to 5 pm. Those calendars with the naked musicians are still in stock there to give as special last-minute presents. My favorite page is the one with the sexy saxophonists. Although the for-sale calendars are sealed by a sticker, there is an examination copy available. Butler Park pitch and putt course was very busy today; sometimes people forget that it’s one of the very best places in town to combine a modest amount of wholesome fresh air and exercise with avoidance of life’s duller responsibilities. The fountain was even set to spray. All over town, it’s impossible to overlook the fact that so many defenseless dogs are forced to appear in public wearing Santa Claus caps; this practice seems to do nothing to promote canine jollity.
