Good Morning!!!Yesterday I needed ice cream. After we closed up, I asked Shelby "How about some ice cream?" We were driving towards tech, deep in conversation. Shelby was on auto pilot, knowing right where he was going. After turning around twice, we were completely confused of where the ice cream shop was.We realized then it had closed up....we then see a sign that says candy, ice cream & coffee we decided to give it try..... we walk into the Arrogant Texan on university and I immediatly fall in love with the place, its my kind of joint....a little rustic, quaint, clean and comfortable, its funny when I walk into places my brain starts going crazy on the idea of it. We are greeted with so much enthusiasm by the young girl behind the ice cream counter. She tells us about the ice cream....we order our shakes, pay and wait. This girl behind the counter is full of enthusiam, excitement.... acutally giddiness, she made Shelby and I excited we were there. We take our delicious creamy shakes to a sitting area and watch and listen to her work. She comes by and I tell her..."You are extremely good at what you do and thank you" with a beaming smile she says..."Whats not to love about candy and ice cream its just so happy I love it." Yall this young lady gets it.... no matter what we do, do it with pure joy in our hearts. Happy Beautiful Thursday yall.... This is my vision and prayer everyday when people walk into the CIG, I want to honor my guest and my heavenly father by working with pure joy in my heart. No matter what we do thru the day... let pure joy radiat from you, you may not be dealing with candy and ice cream but your joy will make a difference, she made a difference in my heart yesterday, she renewed me in so many ways, I praise the Lord for this blessing of watching and listening to her:)
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
