BBQ Burn Out Monday
Welcome to the first issue of BBQ Burn Out Monday.
Every Monday on this blog there will be a post about a topic other than barbeque. Easy folks, I hear the gasps and groans coming from the crowd, but let's face it, it's hard to write about barbecue all the time. As much as I love to Q, life and the weather often get in the way. This blog will always be focused on the world of barbeque, but life is more than "low and slow. "
So starting today, I'm stealing an idea from my friend at SweetNick's and creating a weekly event, BBQ Burn Out Monday. On BBOM, I'll be asking guest bloggers to join us. Most guest bloggers will be foodies like me, but I won't be limiting the guests to food. The only criteria for BBOM is that the post topic will not be directly related to BBQ. Sometimes, I'll write BBOM, but I will try to find the most interesting and creative guest bloggers for your enjoyment.
So for the first BBQ Burn Out Monday take a gander at a new service provided by the City of New York; on-line restaurant inspection reports. Every restaurant and bar's last inspection is available for you to review. But be warned, you may be shocked by what violations are found even when a restaurant has passed inspection. It could turn your stomach.
These reports are created by The Department of health and Mental Hygiene. That's an interesting name for the Health Department. I guess by Mental Hygiene, they mean more than keeping a clean mind!
