Wayback Wednesday: The Bum Steer

43f2/1245279110-bumsteer.jpgRemember the Bum Steer? Honestly, I thought it was still closed.

I know I'm not the only one who was more than a little surprised to see the posting on StarNet's home page today: "Original 1974 menu prices at Tucson's Bum Steer today."

Basically, this Tucson institution of our youth (Anybody else with me on fuzzy White Wednesday memories in college?), is celebrating its 35th anniversary by offering a half pound burger and fries for $1.89—along with other ridiculously low menu items like an 8 ounce sirloin steak for $4.99—until 11 tonight for two cans of food for the Community Food Bank.

That was all I needed: I talked my East Coast co-worker into stopping by Safeway and heading down for lunch.

I was rewarded with a trip in the Wayback Machine and a fairly decent burger.
