So Happy I Ignored You

Friday, September 28, 2012

So I checked in before heading out to eat last night. The will of the group was diner, with the consensus being "Go for the Healthy Option, Doofus!"

Before heading out, I stopped by a colleague's room. He had never heard anything good about that diner and, by the way, how is my immune system? EEEKK!!! Actually my immune system is fine - now - but really, who wants to go somewhere with that kind of endorsement??

The place I went to turned out to be one of the best BBQ restaurants within 90 miles of NYC. And it *really* was very good. I got a whole chicken, and saved half for my lunch today (Friday - but I didnt eat it all today.) For accompaniment, I got the baked beans, wicked tasty and very healthy. I skipped slaw, dessert and the fresh lemonade (sigh). So while I was a tad over my calorie allotment for the day, I still think it was the right choice.

I probably would have enjoyed the ribs, brisket and other treats, but I got to have *real* BBQ and not feel bad so I call that a win.

Yeah, I recommend it. Its only a few miles from a section of the AT, so hikers, this is a great place to end your day. NYCers, the Harlem Line train stop is also pretty close.

  Sounds good. Where is this BBQ place, what is the name? I know the northern end of the Harlem line - am I close?

    Sounds like you made good choices and I don't think a few extra calories will hurt as long as they are the exception rather than the rule. AND, you ENJOYED it! So, kudos to you!
