So as many of you know, I have been trying to check out a lot of the non-chain restaurants and bars for places to eat and drink. I do think it is important to try and shop local when you can.  It isn't always an option, but when it comes to food and drink, it is easier.  I have found that many local places do not have the same amount of regulations or rules set in place from a corporate level.  They make their own.  And often the quality is a little bit better.

I have stopped in a few places, and I have noticed that several of them have tables that are all decorated with little pictures of businesses, from all kinds of occupations.  Real estate, other places to eat, labor jobs, etc.  Is this a Sedalia thing? I believe I saw tables like this in LeMaire's Cajun Catfish, Fortune Palace (great Chinese buffet), End Zone I think had them as did Clara's Diner.  This is not something I was used to seeing.  So, is this a Sedalia thing?

I am curious because I wonder how affective these are.  The photo that you see was taken at Fortune Palace and the server there told me that these table have been that way for a while.  I did find myself looking at the some of the ads.  Now I am not in the market for hydraulic equipment, and I am not the age yet to be concerned about Medicare, but I do know a few people who might be.  So I suppose that is the idea.

So I ask again, is this a Sedalia thing?  And do you find yourself looking at these ads and passing along info?  Have you written down any of the details.  Please share your thoughts.
