As a dyed-in-the-wool Dust Bunny, you know Queen Ginger has pledged her allegiance to 3 things: kittehs, papis, and Arby's. For years now, she has visited the Temple of the Curly Fry at least twice a month on her visits to West Oaks Mall here in Houston, where she has a store. Even though West Oaks is a decrepit wreck of a shopping mall with few stores and even fewer customers, the dream of curly fries and delicious, tender roast beast make her trips way out west much more bearable. It's the only shopping mall in Houston with an Arby's so that makes it worth the trip!
And now for the sad news. I hope you are all sitting down.
In an email dated April 1, 2011, the Vice President and Store Manager informed Queen Ginger that the Arby's at West Oaks Mall (see photo) has been permanently closed. This has reduced the food court offerings at West Oaks to a McDonalds, a random pizza place (it's not even a Sbarro's!) and a mom and pop food of questionable Asian influence.
This is a sad day for Queen Ginger, as I'm sure it is for Dust Bunnies across the nation.
I'm sure you will all understand if posting is a bit light during this period of profound mourning....
