I’ve posted snippets from the road, but now I’m ready to share our full-on adventures and photos from our Shonali Bhowmik 100 Oak’s Revival tour down South…
Day 2: The tire pressure warning light was on, so we stopped at a gas station in Skippers, VA …nothing much around, but I did see a small building next door. It looked kinda like a strip club at first, but I saw a sign for FOOD! I ran over while the band checked out the tires.
They had a $1.99 Pork Chop special that day (Thursdays). I went ahead inside to order one. It’s a little dark lounge with a couple of pool tables. The people there were really nice. The chef said we should come back to play music for them.
When he pulled out the pork chop out of the deep fryer, I couldn’t believe it’s size. Humongous! I was expecting a little small thing for $1.99. This thing was incredible. It was bigger than my face. Reminded me of the big pork chop at Brooklyn Star, but I think this was bigger. He put it on 2 slices of white bread. This thing was amazing. Tasted great. The best deal I’ve ever had. It was fate that the warning signal went off.
