One advantage of moving to the big city is that there are so many restaurants to pick from. The disadvantage is that there are so many to pick from. Of course, it also makes it a lot easier to avoid eating in chain restaurants. What was the last non-chain restaurant you ate it?

We made a small day trip on Sunday to Baltimore to go to Chaps Pit Beef. Despite it’s location in a grimy industrial neighborhood (and the parking lot of a strip club) it is one of my favorite restaurants. I had the corned beef, turkey and ham, WinnieTheWoot went for pit beef, corned beef and sausage, and Dr. Mrs. Hatrack did the pulled pork. We did not go to the strip club. Maybe when Winnie turns 21.
