New restaurant to deliver meals via train 

All Aboard will serve fast-casual food with a healthy tilt. Again, by train.

Restaurateur Vince Schallenberg, until recently a partner in Corky's BBQ, plans to open a new restaurant at 6813 Cantrell in early April. All Aboard will serve fast-casual food with a healthy tilt, Schallenberg said — grilled sandwiches, wraps, pitas, salads, soups, turkey burgers. Just how fast the food arrives to customers depends on All Aboard's novel delivery system: Diners, Schallenberg said, will receive their meals via a train that will travel on two oval tracks six feet seven inches above 1800 square-foot dining room. Without ever stopping, the train will transfer orders to diners' booths via a hydraulic mechanism. A logistics computer system will power the operation.

Schallenberg said he plans to keep the restaurant open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. He plans also to serve beer and wine.

  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
