"I've never seen traffic so horrendous during rush hour as I saw in Birmingham. I'm not sure why."
You are very lucky if it's not horrible!  Rush hours here are the worst, and Miss Myra's is off Hwy 280 which is the worst of the worst.
Good that you had a wonderful meal after fighting the traffic.  Glad to hear all are safe and sound so far!
And 'Nanner Pudding!!!  Woohoo!

Traffic?  You folks call that traffic?  No......it was something out of some sicko Quentin Tarentino movie.  Not only did the traffic prohibit us from meeting Dale and Sandra at Miss Myra's, we nearly ran out of gas.  At one point, it took us ONE HOUR to go 5 miles.  I have lived in Boston, Paris, been through LA, NY and many other major cities, I never, EVER saw traffic like Bham.  We ended up eating a mediocre steak (could've stayed at home and had better) in Alabama.  Looking forward to Mobile tomorrow!!!!!!!

Bham does have some of the WORST traffic in America, you would think they would figure something out, but for the last 13 years I know it has been.... Well this is a "G" rated site.
 
Have fun!

I am so sorry your Birmingham stay was Tarentino-esque!

Giddy up....breakfast at Foley's Coffee House where we tried the red and sausage gravies with biscuits, a few omelets, pancakes and a grilled German Sausage....great start. Now, having Hot Fudge Sundae milkshake with rasberries added in and extra everything. WOW

Drinks at the Gulf, a place on the beach made out of shipping containers. 
  
 
Cocktails on the beach at the Gulf while watching the sailboats.
   
 
Later, a Gulf sunset. If the weather stays the way it has been, its going to be a great glee club weekend!
 
 
Off in a few hours to meet will_work_for_bbq at the Dew drop in for a hot dog and then on to meet everyone at Wintzell's. This is gonna be fun!

Getting ready for bed now. I'm gonna miss the comradire of my fellow Roadfooders until next year. PovertyPete and I are going to meet up at 0800 to start the trip back to Nashville.

The Brick Pit had the best ribs I have ever eaten.  The Roadfood Awards Ceremony went like this:  A can of Boyardee ravioli went to Michael Hoffman.  No surprise there, as the rest of us wouldn't touch the stuff and now it's out of MY kitchen!  The OINKER aka Pig-Out-Award went to the one, the only buffetbuster for having eaten more BBQ, hamburgers, fried chicken, hot dogs, and of course pie and told us all about it in his great threads.  Lastly, Al the Mayor was awarded the Patience of Job award for putting up with all of us day after day, year after year.  Again, a wonderful time was had by all!

Your pictures made me cry, those soft white sands, those poor rock shrimp that gave their lives for your happiness.  I weep for their loss... and your gain!

Three of us just checked in at the airport which leaves Ralph and Steve as the last two men standing!  We got one more visit to Wintzell's in along with a few breakfast stops.  Great seeing everyone and enjoying the food and fellowship!  Congratulations to all of our award winners...Michael, Cliff and Mayor Al and a shout out to Dale for his trip reports also!
Looking forward to the food discussions in the upcoming days!

I'm sorry so many of you missed the Post Glee Club mini-meeting at the Rest Area just north of Evergreen, AL.  Imagine my delight to see Mayor Al and Janet, Ann, Mike S, and Poverty Pete there.  We hadn't seen each other - or eaten - in almost two hours!  The snack machines were divine....    But not as divine as a second visit to Wintzell's!

I am still here in AL for a few more days, so I guess I qualify as "last man standing". Sterling and I went to Buck's Diner for fried catfish
and fried green tomatoes. And then to an outdoor show at a place called the Frog Pond at Blue Moon farmT
Included in the show ticket was a southern buffet with pulled pork, ham, mac and cheese, beans and about 10 other dishes and desserts. The music was really good, all originals except for a good version of the Band's "The Weight".

Tomorrow------I think I may go to Wintzell's for happy hour again. I love it here!

What a fine looking bunch of people!  But where are the piles of rib bones that we had just gnawed clean?  It was a fabulous night and an outstanding weekend!  Enjoyed every minute with all of you!

Sandra and I just flew back home this evening. Sandra probably just arrived home in Connecticut by now.
 
We had a great time. Sandra really enjoyed meeting the Roadfood folk that she hadn't met previously and  also enjoyed seeing the ones who she met previously.
 
We  drove back to Charlotte NC from Mobile and went to the Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery AL as well as the Martin Luther King Memorial in Atlanta.  We made it back to Charlotte late monday afternoon and met up with my friend Julianne and her husband Scott later that evening and also met up with my cousin Lisa and her husband Phil for dinner yesterday.
 
Unfortunately I won't be doing a formal trip report but will be adding a few photos for some new restaurants that we visited ...
 
Its back to work and reality tomorrow.
