WhiteTrash BBQ -- Real Pit Barbecue from New York City. This is the story of a fire obsessed guy, living in Brooklyn, with a dream of producing award winning, competition busting, real Barbeque. Come live the dream as I compete around the country in the KCBS Championship Barbecue circuit.

Tennessee Mountain Sneaker Hop

One of the things I love about New York City is it's ever changing scene. But one of the things I hate about New York City is the mallification of Manhattan. When I was a teen, one of the great things about going into "the city" was that it was filled with stores and places that didn't exisist anywhere else. Not anymore. Does Manhattan need another chain shoe store?

Crocs seems to think so. According to The Villager, Crocs is taking over the old Tennessee Mountain Barbecue Restaurant space in Soho. What a shame.

"Crocs to rock Soho: Crocs, those crazy rubber kayaking shoes that have taken the nation by storm, will be opening a new store in Soho at the northwest corner of Spring and Wooster Sts., reports landlord Norman Buchbinder. Crocs will be filling the former Tennessee Mountain barbeque space, so it won’t be another bar. As a matter of fact, President Bush touted Crocs as a small-business success story in his weekly radio address right before the midterm elections. We’ll leave it up to Downtown Independent Democrats, though, to sort out all the politics on Crocs."

Me. I miss the old Tennessee Mountain Barbecue. It once ruled the NY BBQ scene, but as the purists opened up, it lost it's crown and it seems its business. Too bad. I'd rather have an OK barbecue place as opposed to another suburban shoe store any day.
