Default If Fort Knox is still around....

It's been forever and a day since I was there, but there used to be a place located between Cosby and I-40 known as Fort Knox. It was operated by a German couple. I do not recall her name, but his was George. The story was that he was former SS. I never had the nerve to ask. They specialized in German food, with Hasenpfeffer to die for. They also sold a variety of drinks made with moonshine, including maraschino cherries pickled in white lightening. The last time I was there was in the late 1980s. Iit was George’s 80th birthday. He was dancing on top of the bar with two scantly clad local lasses while his wife clapped with the music. I do not recall is they served breakfast, at least in the traditional sense.
