Looking For Some BBQ Tonight? For A Hot Time Doc Prescribes East Moline's Smokey's Country DinerTonight I got two phone numbers.
I wasn’t trying for either, however I guess I still have game.
Not many BBQ ribs around here are suck-the-meat-off-the-bone good. But hot damn Smokey’s Country Diner in East Moline is a winner.
There I was minding my own business, gnawing every morsel of deliciousness off the bone when I looked up and saw his face.
At first I thought he was disgusted. He looked away quickly and I continued my vigorous method until the bone was clean.
Shortly afterwards I even licked my plate clean.
Now, at that time, the person who I thought was the man’s date looked at me in amazement, awe or some kind of petrified silence as if she’d just tuned into the Discovery Channel and was watching a lion tear into a gazelle at the water pit.
Wiping off the crime scene that was my face, I watched as the couple walked by as they left, and dropped two napkins down on my table.
Now, listen Marcus and Katie. I’m a happily married man. I’m not interested, but thank you for the consideration. If I was 20 years younger, single and had a stronger back I’d make the call and we figure out how the night would go after a bottle of Mezcal, a bucket of whipped cream and some Santana.
Just your friend in food,
Doc
