Nothing Finishes A Week Like A Pic Of Fantastic Food...

I’ve decided I need more regular features on this website. They don’t need to be about sports, news or politics, because these days, those topics just make people angry. In fact, the only two things that don’t seem to make people mad these days are puppies and food.

In that spirit, I think every Friday there should be a picture of some outrageous food. It can be called Food Porn Friday, and it will be a picture of something you should walk away thinking “I’d like to have that one day.”

With that in mind, the first weekly winner comes from St. Louis. I have a friend who is doing a good deed this week, driving hundreds of miles to Kentucky, then taking another mutual friend to St. Louis for some medical issues. Having been a road warrior back in the day, I know the most valuable knowledge you can have when traveling is restaurant recommendations from a local. My friend, who I have known most of my life, tends to just try the first place he sees.

I decided to do some research for him. One of the people I follow on Twitter is Dan Buffa (@buffa82) who knows just about everything about sports, restaurants, movies, you name it in St. Louis. So I asked him for some recommendations and he sent back a bunch.

To make it easier for my friend, I looked all these places up and wrote down their address, phone number and the website address so he could see a menu and decided if he wanted to pursue any on the list. Most websites also show pics of their products, and it was while perusing the site of the Hi-Pointe Drive In in St. Louis that I came upon this monster.

The restaurant also has an Instagram page, and on it, they described this enticing pic as “Rare seared flank steak seasoned with Dr. Dave’s Miracle Rub, Muenster cheese, Panko onion rings mixed, greens and tiger King sauce.”

The fact that they have a “Dr. Dave” Miracle Rub only further ads to the sandwich's appeal for me. 😊

If you’ve got a nominee for Food Porn Friday, send it This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Because every week, life is tough enough. You need a pot of gold (or a picture of some great looking food) to look forward to at the end of the rainbow, er, week.

They Finally Did It...

They Did It

After a long and bumpy road, The Washington Nationals finally won the World Series. And made an old man in Ashburn cry...

Never Grow Old...

Never Grow Old

A trip to Spring Training reminded me we're all still kids at heart, and no matter how old, you keep playing until they get you out.

Gone But Never Forgotten...


My faithful dogs probably rode shotgun on hundreds of stories I've written since 2003. This one is for you, Doodle & Schnoodle.
