There are days in the year worth celebrating. Some have significance, religious or personally meaningful like a true love’s birthday or anniversary. Other holidays instill pride for our country and the flag. The United States recognizes only 10 days as national holidays, and they are certainly legitimate, like Christmas and Independence Day. Take it down a notch and you’ve got government-sanctioned national observances, like Mother’s Day and Flag Day. Then there are less meaningful days in our country which simply are meant to bring a small curl to the lips and a twinkle in the eyes of people like me, and maybe a marketing department somewhere or the manufacturer of corn flakes.. Today might very well be one of those days.

Norma’s Cafe is celebrating its 61st anniversary tomorrow morning, which means rollback prices for a few of the staple southern dishes.
Norma’s opened during 1956 in Oak Cliff on Highway 80, offering high pie, from scratch homey dishes such as chicken fried steak and meatloaf, and plenty of mash potatoes and veggies. These are the things of an era gone by that are still craved by hungry patrons to the restaurant.

We totally understand putting off the inevitable. In case you missed our Valentine Guide with listings of cool hot spots to dine and visit, we have yet another suggestion. Norma’s Cafe.

And if your date is into ranch dressing – bonus points.
