Eating at NECC2006

I almost forgot about another favorite eating place near the Convention Center. The Kansas City Barbeque is where the infamous "sleazy bar" scene was shot for the movie Top Gun. Click on the photos to see them in full size. The first one is a montage of a few interior shots plus the view from the Hyatt which is right across the street. The second one is a compilation of a few of the goofy signs and bumper stickers that they have in the place.

You can actually get a sandwich with fries here for $6.75. Beer is extra. If you're really hungry, try one of the two-meat or three-meat combos and the odds are good that you'll never finish it. Jerry is a good old boy, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. He doesn't own the place but he acts like he does (he said that, not me). If you like real BBQ then this is a must-stop. If your idea of good BBQ is riblets at Applebees then you might want to keep looking for one of those.

When Jerry found out that I'm from Minnesota (and Wisonsin) he felt compelled to tell me about one of their regular patrons from Fridley, MN. Her name is Chelsea and let's just say that she is a businesswoman who spends a few days on Harbor Drive every three months. I really can't tell you any more but Jerry would be happy to if you stop in for a cold one. Oh yeah, the sessions were good today, too.
