    Don't know what Bryant's BBQ in Kansas City will do. I usually don't like Wonder Bread, but that place has the best bbq ever. People go to the hood to stand in line to wait to be served. Their brisket sandwiches are the best. Of course they use Wonder Bread to sop up all that good sauce. The sandwiches are big enough to feed 2. Drat, miss stopping at that place. It was one heck of a long drive for ribs from ST Louis to KC, but worth the drive.

    Although usually a whole grain devotee, it just wouldn't be the same at Bryant's without that unhealthy white bread. :D

    Someone I was visiting in Kansas City years ago kept talking up Arthur Bryant's, and finally the evening came when we were going to go. I dressed up because I thought he was talking about the fanciest place in town. Once he stopped laughing, and I changed clothes, off we went. I was stunned by the barbecue - it looked like they had just dropped whole cows into a shredder. :D

    In my childhood it was always Mrs. Baird's. That's still usually what I buy to this day.

    What if there was no white bread? That means no leftover turkey sandwiches on Friday in November. If I can't have a leftover turkey sandwich, I don't even want turkey to begin with. If I don't want turkey why bother having Thanksgiving at all? If no Thanksgiving, why would I go see my family? If no family...no Christmas, birthday, wedding or anniversary, etc presents. If none of that, no economy, no jobs, no houses, etc.

    OMG you're right! Michele's whole eat healthy rampage!
    I bet this has been the angry black first lady's plan all along.

    Did you go to the one in the casino or the original old place? I used to be terrified going there, as the greyhounds would be in the back of the wagon. There I was outside the place in the hood while the now ex would go in and get the carryout food. The greyhounds aren't exactly watchdogs. I must have provided the day's entertainment to some of the locals clutching my cell phone in case of emergency---like someone breaking into the car. :D

    Their food is good, though, and worth the risk. There's another place called Gates. I preferred Arthur Bryant's.

    The old place. I remember thinking it wasn't in the best neighborhood, but don't remember much beyond that (this was 1976). I remember thinking that the romance would not last, because no man was worth moving to a city where breathing the air could scorch your lungs (I was there in August.....)

    Believe me, the neighborhood hasn't improved. It was one of those places where you'd feel safer driving through in a tank.

    The worst August weather I've ever experienced was in Leesburg, Va, where I was taking a 3 week training class with Xerox (worked there 2 years, didn't want to ever return to their training facility). It was so hot and humid that I couldn't breathe. I couldn't wait to return to St Louis. I at last had found somewhere more hot and humid than St Louis in the summer. :D

    The Wonder "day old bakery" stores were a great place to shop...

    Ho-Ho's never tasted the same after they quit wrapping them in foil.
