Happy Monday folks! I have been told that there is a place here in Kansas City that puts slaw on hot dogs. In fact, the place also sells a burger that it calls the Carolinas burger, with slaw and chili on it as well. I will be investigating this place, called The Brick, in due time. If you come visit me here, maybe that’s one place we can go. In the meantime, I lead off with a photo today of Stamey’s Barbecue, taken at it’s Gate City Boulevard location across from the Greensboro Coliseum, where there’s always slaw on hot dogs, and the perfect place to chat, as my dad and I would for many years.
