Red Cream Soda and Other Perfect Things

Anyone who doubts the economic impact of a professional sports team on a city's economy should have seen the hordes of Minnesota Twins fans swamping Kansas City's jazz district on Wednesday afternoon. Minnesotans love their third-place team; thousands hit I-35 each August to experience our Southern heat. It was interesting to watch out-of-towners respond to the unique qualities of Arthur Bryant's. For the record, the ribs and smoked beef served at the institution yesterday were excellent.

    If Homer Simpson lived in KC the salivatory catch phrase would have been, "Mmmmmm.....Bryants".

    Soon as the heat breaks I'm gonna have to make a road trip. 1/2 beef, 1/2 turkey, please. No fries.
