The pastoral staff at Redeemer frequents a local eating establishment several times each week. We bring many of God's Elect to share a meal with us there. Ah, Freddy T's...I am reminded of a song, sing it with me- making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same you wanna be where everybody knows your name.
Freddy T's of Overland Park, in addition to unmatchable ambiance, offers a varied menu in the genre of greasy American bar food. Without hesitation I give the place 5 stars. Admittedly, despite their multiple items, I tend to stick with the "Buffalo Chicken Salad" (because it's about 11 Weight Watcher points) or the BLT on special on Fridays.
T's appreciates the Redeemer pastoral staff and our patronage. They donated two sweet t-shirts and a gift certificate to our mission trip auction last week which fetched something like $75 (I was sniped in the last minute by two unsavory guys). I thanked the owner today and she was so thrilled with the money the T's items raised that she gave Nathan and I a priceless gift- a Freddy T's beer glass (pictured above). I hate to brag, but a person has to be very special to be given one of these glasses. 100 years from now my great great grandchild will take this glass to the Antiques Roadshow and some English-accented dude is going to light up when handling the glass. He'll say something like- "How did you come to own this glass?". My grandchild will respond- "It's been in the family for several generations. I remember my great grandfather sipping Italian Peroni from it while talking of his grandfather Felich's description of a place called Freddy T's". To which the English Antiques roadshow dude will say- "Well, this is very special indeed...most of these original glasses were destroyed in a huge bar fight that occurred back in 2024. There are only two known glasses to have survived, you have one in your possession now. Do you have any idea how much this is worth?" My grand child will play coy and sheepishly respond- "Um, no, I really don't". Then will come these words from the expert, "This glass will easily get $150,000 dollars at auction."
I am thinking it is time to ask the ownership if they would be willing to sponsor our Thursday night soccer team. The Chicago Fire have "Best Buy", the L.A. Galaxy have "Herbalife", the Columbus Crew have "Glidden", and D.C. United have "Volkswagen", I think a silk screen of the Freddy T's guy on our uniforms would place us in an elite grew of U.S. soccer teams with prestigious sponsors, don't you?
