Oklahoma governor to visit Route 66 restaurant

If you’re planning to stop for a bite to eat at Al’s Route 66 Cafe in Sapulpa, Okla., on Thursday afternoon, don’t be surprised if you shake the governor’s hand.

Gov. Brad Henry is scheduled to visit Al’s about 3:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the Sapulpa Daily Herald. Henry, a Democrat, is running for re-election and is campaigning across the state in an RV.

It’s OK if Henry wants to have a bite at Al’s. The food is swell. However, he’s advised to avoid ordering the Big Daddy — unless he wants to feed his entire staff.

Regardless of how you feel about politics or Henry, it’s cool that Al’s Route 66 Cafe is getting the exposure.

Maybe Henry’s chief challenger, Ernie Istook, can stop there, too.
