At the last minute we decided NOT to go to Brazil and go to Palm Springs, CA for a month. Off of this frozen popsicle called Alaska! We leave on Sat. and I was wondering if anyone ever went to Big Bear, CA to The Hot Spot and had grabbers. We had them last Feb. and are certainly going to have them again on this trip. Kind of a BBQ pork sandwich, but small. And even tho I'll be in California, you CANNOT make me drink the wheatgrass and beet juice!

Hope to stay in touch with y'all periodically, but the dining al fresco (no relation to Al the Mayor) the grapefruit and lemon trees, the BBQ grill, THE POOL, the TANNING, oh my. I may slide the laptop under the bed and not retreive it for awhile!

Happy Roadfooding to everyone!

    I know I've posted this elsewhere and it's not Roadfood related but every once in a while we do discuss non-food issues (has anyone else noticed this?).

    A good friend of mine, Kal David, is the owner and star of the show at a great blues nightclub called the Blue Guitar on S. Palm Canyon Dr. in downtown Palm Springs. Kal is an incredible guitarist and singer and is backed by a rock solid band.

    Trust me, if you go, it will be an evening well spent.

        Wise move not to go to Brazil, I have friends that returned last week from a month in Curatiba. They got there before finger printing and photo id was being done. They stayed and traveled with a local family and had no problems but they were mostly in very non tourist places.
