Thursdays Are For Eating All The Meat You Can

It's so hard to put things into perspective. Things I think are important to me, are actually not that important. Like "oh shit, I lost my iPhone!" and then I go being all sad and complain a whole bunch because I lost my phone. Or that my boss is an ass and I just want to punch him in the face. Sure, these are all bad things but in the end, they are not that important.

I have my health, I make enough money for me to go out for drinks and to get bbq whenever I crave for it and I have a roof over my head. There are people out there that are way worse than I am. I understand it's hard to look beyond our own circle but try. I'm trying. I'm trying not to let one phone call make me depress or worry about the future and the what ifs.

You thought this was going to be about the delicious meat stuff I ate last night, sorry.

City Grit

Jim 'N Nicks at City Grit Couple months ago I attended the Dim Sum Y'all dinner at City Grit, run by Sarah Simmons. Then I went back to take some behind the scenes photos and I (smartly) picked the nights that Chef Drew Robinson from Jim 'N Nicks BBQ was guest chefting. And oh my was it awesome to take photos and to be in the kitchen surrounded by pork belly, homemade ham(!), sausages and pimento cheese (if you've been a regular at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party, you'll know about this dish), and bbq pork shoulder.

Chef Josh Gentry, of the soon-to-be-open Little Donkey in Birmingham, Al did his dinner the night before and was there to help out Chef Robinson, was constantly blasting music and kept everyone pumped out during dinner service.

Anyone wanna take a road trip to Alabama?
