Bob's Baby Backs Ain't Comin' Back

As much as for his books and movies, Gore Vidal is remembered for his oft-stated belief that one should “never pass up a chance to have sex or be on television.”

He should’ve added “or to go to your favorite barbecue joint because you don’t know when that sucker is liable to shut down.”

That’s what I told myself recently after foregoing my usual bi-weekly trip to Bob’s BBQ in Creedmoor and getting my usual - two huge slabs of ribs.
