So, these people know how to eat--and they know how to decorate for Christmas. I know it's kind of early, but let me tell you, it felt like Christmas today after all my events were over--and they went pretty darn good (stay tuned for some specifics on that). For now, I gotta post these photos of Scott and my "celebratory adventure" to the Bristol Speedway in Lights and Ridgewood Barbecue.
"You haven't had BBQ until you've had Ridgewood." This place is back in the woods (sort of like Ruth's Diner for those of you familiar with that). There is a smoke house next door where they smoke all their meat--delicious and moist. I'm not a BBQ expert by any means, but, this place made me want to be. They serve their fries with homemade blue cheese dip. And delicious baked beans. That white on the plate is slaw--oh yeah, we're in the south, baby.
It's like a huge Christmas street. They've set up themed lights that move and blink and everything all around the Bristol Speedway (hello, do we have any Nascar fans?? I don't even know how to spell it...). We actually drove on the track. Craziness!
