My version of The Captain’s Table may end up being a “cop shop”. That’s a restaurant or bar that encourages law enforcement officers to frequent there.
Back when I worked for the Johnson County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office, that was Whataburger in Cleburne. More often than not I worked Evening Watch (4 PM to Midnight) and back then that was the only eating establishment in town that was open past Midnight. It was usually off-duty Cleburne PD, Johnson County (sheriff’s office and constables) and the Texas State Troopers that were there at that time. The riff-raff usually didn’t hang around long while we were in there. It was probably the safest place in the county to be, ha, ha.
Yeah, I may have to follow through with this idea.
