After yesterday's rally, I ventured over the the Phantom Gourmet's Barbecue Beach Party in City Hall Plaza. I was planning on going to dinner here but since I was in the area for lunch, I figured, why not? For $5 you can venture into a BBQ battle that'll make your taste buds dance.
There were so many choices...
Wait a minute! Butch?!? THE Butch? As seen on Food Network?? I know it's cheesy (and I don't even like Bobby Flay) but when I watched this episode my mouth WATERED and I actually walked down to the local BBQ place near my house to get some (sub par) food to quench my craving. Naturally, my mind was made up. Butch's it was!
Butch himself...I wanted so badly to ask for a picture with him (see, I really am a geek) but I was for some reason, too shy. (Not usually a problem for me in this sense.) He even walked out from behind the booth and was standing right next to me (on his cell phone). It would have been perfect... Pulled Pork Sandwich with Butch's mild BBQ sauce.
It was honestly the best pulled pork I've ever had. It lived up to it's reputation and I'm glad I picked it. I do wish that I had some more cash on me though, because I would have loved to compare it to others-but that would have also required some friends to share the food with, and I was by myself. If you're in the Boston area, I high recommend that you stop by the Beach Party for some tasty treats.
In other news I'd like to report on my miracle spray that I got in the mail the other day. Though I can't say 100% that it works yet (because I've only been using it for 3 days) I can tell you that I do see a significant difference. Yesterday for instance, turned out to be very hot. It was cool when I left the house and I had on the only green I had-a light sweater-and jeans. I also had my hair down (which I did later put up). While standing in the crowd I felt warm and in normal circumstances, I'd have a slick face.
I had nothing.
I started testing it out too-I faced the sun, kept my hair down for a bit, walked the long way to the bbq place-and I only got a tiny bit clammy. It wasn't until I ran to the T that I sweat a little more-but even that wasn't as bad as it usually would be. I'm giving it a week like they suggest and by then, I hope it'll be in full effect.
It does make my face tingle when I put it on at night and sometimes if I'm warm it stings a little. And in the morning when I wash it off, it's really bitter if the water runs into your mouth in the shower. The bottle is also very small-but in my opinion, it's worth it.
Like I said, I'm not 100% ready to say it works, which is why I haven't named the product yet. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll be able to share it with confidence and everyone who has the same problem will get relief too....
