    But first we ate at The Black Bear Diner in Torrance @Chriza to have the energy for this task. It's a tough job but someone has to do it.

    I had a bowl of vegetable soup and a Bacon Cheeseburger Salad with avocado and Blue Cheese dressing.
    The others had breakfast.
    Bacon and scrambled eggs, and a Vegetarian Omelette.
    Deeeelicious!

    We saw a lovely type of Fig Tree that is a pretty big draw in Santa Barbara I'm told.

    Did you happen to come across a '99 Ford Escort with minimal rust? I'm asking for a friend.

    I was tempted to go across the street tp Floyd The Barbershop for a haircut, but since I cut my own hair I passed.

    We decided to have a couple of Ballast Point Longfins while we waited for our BBQ order to be ready to go.

    The Food...

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We ordered The Blue Devil. Your choice of 4 different meats with 3 additional fixins. $35.95

    Sliced Brisket just the way I like it, tender and delicious with the perfect blend of seasoning. Babyback Ribs lightly sauced, fell off teh bone and finger licking great.
    A Smoked Hot Link, the heat snuck up on us. Finally a Giant Beef Rib that was succulent and mouth watering, lightly sauced and came with extra sauce on the side.
    The fixins we chose were all very good and tasted like they were home made by a little old lady from the South.
    Creamed Spinach, Macaroni & Cheese and Collard Greens.
    It also came with cornbread and sweetbutter. :D

    I highly recommend this place if you are in or near Venice or Hollywood.
