Big week here for hard-boiled western flavor on City of Ate.

Highlights from City of Ate:
World Champhionship of Quail Egg Eating
Score yet another one for inevitability, with Lester Tucker's 14th straight win at the world Quail Egg Eating Championships in Grand Prairie last weekend. Also inevitable: somebody puked.

Short of a swingin' door Wild West saloon, there's no manlier place to drink than a greasy sports bar. But only one of them will serve you an alcoholic milkshake.
Short Orders: Cowboy Chow
Everybody's favorite fauxksy Deep Ellum lunch spot makes good on its no-frills approach to time-tested flavors.

Yep, nothing like a good brunch menu to recall that time the law caught up with the most famous outlaw of all... Jesus. Wow. Who wants omelettes?!
