Vientiane Thai Restaurant

In my still relatively new work neighbourhood, there are no shortage of good places to eat. So far I’ve visited about half a dozen or so, and there are still more to come.

A Visit With Friends to Lovey’s BBQ and Smokehouse

Lovey’s BBQ is no longer in business. Last Friday I had the chance to go for supper with Anna Coleshaw-Echols and Lori Morton, two of my blogging friends.  The occasion was an invitation to Lovey’s BBQ and Smokehouse on Marion Street.  As a matter of full disclosure, our meal was provided gratis, but the review that follows is my own thoughts and I wasn’t asked to make any particular comments. Lovey’s also has a truck. It has been renamed since I…Continue readingA Visit With Friends to Lovey’s BBQ and Smokehouse
