Dear Burger’s Market:
The City of Louisville bids you adieu when you close in March. I’d like to take a moment to thank you and say goodbye to all of my special friends at Burger’s. Everybody join hands and read along with me:
Fare thee well, oh chicken salad and knot rolls. You were my breakfast of champions and sometimes my lunch, too.
Cheerio to Bethany’s Beaten Biscuits and Country Ham Salad. (In fact, all the various country ham manifestations will be missed. I’ll drink two extra glasses of water in your honor to counter the salt.)
Au revoir to the the most perfect produce in the city. I have never seen produce merchandised so well. (Tip of the hat to Tony Burger.)
See ya later soups and prepared meals that saved many a starving family’s life at 5 p.m. Special snaps to the meatloaf and chicken tetrazzini.
Fried chicken. My eyes are welling up just thinking about life without you on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Ciao to the freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh milk, as well.
Candy aisle, Collegiate students will mourn your loss.
Until we meet again, local ice cream and gelato, sitting together in perfect harmony.
Allow me to take a walk down memory lane, in smaller carts custom sized to fit down the narrow aisles.
So long delivery service and the knot rolls and chicken salad brought to the door in my time of need.
And so long to the wonderful old-fashioned “tab” system. Sigh.
Most of all, so long to the friendly faces of the Burger Family.
You will be missed Burger’s. Thank you for feeding us for all these years.
