Celebrate America's B-Day @ Smokin' Woody's 7/12/13

Continuing our tradition that began last year we will celebrate America's birthday with some good old fashioned BBQ. Though we are Ethnic BYOB we always eat All-American food for the July Meetup. Smokin' Woody's has been a Chicago favorite for over 20 years and the originators of the popular Ribfest. Should be a great night to enjoy a beautiful summer evening. Hope to see everyone there.

    June and Steve did a great job selecting Smokin Woodys for the July meetup. Fortunately, the weather cooperated. I had a great time.

    I went to Smokin Woodys about a year ago and they had a pretty good brisket at that time. I will compare and contrast this visit with Brands Barbeque Market which had outstanding brisket, pork, and potato salad. Kay Farley

    Good article Bob!

    The Wall Street Journal had a BYOB related article yesterday, the "Highs and (Rare) Lows in Restaurant Wine Prices. The wine critic for the WSJ says restaurant critics need to learn wine prices to make sure restaurants aren't gouging customers by charging 3-4 times the wholesale price for wine. The comments after the article are also interesting, especially one about the $38 bottle of Yellow Tail. This makes a $2 cork fee seem like a bargain.
