Texas Connects Us:Restaurant Hosts Senior Citizen Bingo

Most people are in a hurry. You grab your breakfast and you're on your way.

Unless you're at the Chick-Fil-A in Grand Prairie.

There, breakfast is all fun and games.

"Oh, it's serious business," said owner Robin Harris.

Nine years ago, Harris launched senior citizen bongo.

"The senior citizens are often a forgotten group and they're such a blessing to us, " Harris said.

The idea was to create a space where local seniors could meet, and now, the first Wednesday of every month, they fill the restaurant.

"They come early, they come to get their favorite seat, so they hear what they want to hear and see what they want to see, " Robin joked.

They even have guests stop by to help out.

Grand Prairie police officer Greg New is a crowd favorite.

"It gives me a chance to just interact with the community in a different light," New said. "It just lets them see that we're normal, you know."

Breakfast is always better with friends, but this group will tell you, it's best with bingo.
