outside onto the still muggy streets and got yelled at my 50 motorcycle=
cops who were outside the hotel Obama is staying in, they told me I had=
to walk on the other side of the road. I walked about 6 blocks and=
came to the realization that I was going to wrong way. I turned aro=

a strong steady wind, the kind of wind that only comes from traveling hun=

my view was of Collins Avenue and a canal. I went up to his luxury=

wanted nothing to do with it. My cell phone was out of power and my=

for ballpark food. I learned two things:
you up, I recommend heading to Bull’s Bar-b-que and getting a combo platt=

a Bull Dog (keilbasa on a roll), a roast beef or pork sandwich, and a cou=
ple of ribs. The food is tasty and they have multiple lines so you=
don’t have to wait forever.
Chickie’s & Pete’s at the end of Ashburn Alley for some crab fries wi=
th cheese. This booth is always a mob scene, but we got there at the=

$6 for a tub of crab fries and an additional $2 for their cheese. =
It’s expensive, but it is always packed so I guess they priced it right.&=
