Diner of the Week: Crossroads Diner in Dallas, Texas. The juncture that has brought Chefs Tom Fleming and Carl Strelecki together started from a relationship born over 10 years ago. Working together at Lombardi Mare, Tom as the Executive Chef and Carl as his apprentice, they quickly realized they had a strong common denominator: they were both inspired by their mother’s cooking. This inspiration translated to many fundamental values shared between themthe most notable being simple ingredients, delicious food, and value-driven dishes. Over the years, their roads would continue to cross as they again worked together at several notable restaurants and hotels, including Central 214 at Hotel Palomar. The final juncture came when this complimentary pair realized it was time for them to take the ultimate step, opening their own restaurant. Melt-in-your-mouth buttermilk Pancakes, savory Meatloaf, creamy Mac and Cheese, signature Sticky Buns and memorable Quiches are a small sampling of the extensive menu Crossroads Diner offers. Selections are many, but one thing remains constant: ample servings of fresh, made-from-scratch food that is as delicious as it is affordable. Check out Crossroads Diner website. Google map.

Those Diner and Motorcycle Guys: In 1965 Craig Vetter graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois and from that point on never took a normal job.  He simply designed the things that HE wanted, made them and sold them.  His work in life has always been “design-driven” as opposed to “financially driven” or “marketing driven.” Windjammer fairing and saddlebags of the 70s created the modern touring motorcycle.  By 1977,Vetter had factories in Illinois and California, employing over five hundred people, and had grown to be second in size to Harley-Davidson. Vetter has been awarded over twenty US patents and /or trademarks.Craig’s Vetter Rocket 3 design of 1969 became the Triumph Hurricane of 1973 and was selected for display in the Guggenheim Museum’s “Art of the Motorcycle."  Bike Magazine named the Hurricane as one of the “100 best motorcycle designs ever." Other Vetter motorcycle designs include the Bonneville TT, Terraplane sidecar and the Mystery Ship. Vetter scooter designs include the Defiant and Torpedo and a series of Streamliners. Craig married Carol, the prettiest girl at his company and in 1978, sold everything to become a husband and Daddy.  Today, every motorcycle manufacturer features at least one machine in its lineup that is substantially derived from Craig’s designs. In 1980, in an effort to learn what the upper limits of efficient transportation might be at real highway speeds, Craig hosted the international “Craig Vetter Fuel Economy Runs” in California.  Driving a course from San Luis Obispo through Big Sur to Monterey, the winning mileage went from 98 mpg in 1980 to 470 mpg in 1985. One of the winning Vetter machines is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. In 1999, the American Motorcyclist Association inducted Craig into the “Motorcycle Hall of Fame. ” Today, the Museum features a permanent display of his work. Check out Craig's website and the Vetter Owners Group.
