To San Luis Obispo

  

After committing a misdemeanor at the San Jose landfill, our first real stop was in Paso Robles to survey the damage from the recent earthquake. It was considerable, and everyone in town seemed to have ventured downtown to see it…

 

We arrived in San Luis Obispo and checked into our suite at the Motel 6 about 7:00. We headed downtown and dinner was at a place called Mo’s Barbecue. I was taken in by a menu item called “North Carolina Pork Shoulder”. I was not amused when they handed me a plate full of shredded random animal smothered in some sort of ketchup and molasses sauce. There was no indication that it was pork and it resembled nothing I’ve ever seen in North Carolina…

Why is that most of the country thinks barbecue is defined by the (generally nasty, ketchupy, and sweet) sauce rather than the meat? Outside my home state, I tink Memphis Minnie’s is the only place that gets it right…

After dinner, we walked around downtown a bit. It’s a nice town…
