BA in the Trib

c8w | May 5, 200404:15 PM

Slowly, one by one, all the bastions of Great
Cue in the Windy City are falling to the Trib's
columns. Soon they'll all be packed to the gills
with Trib readers, and us old hounds will have
to stand in line for our chow instead of just
walking in and out with our food (not that
that would be a bad thing of course :-)

First the Reader had a BBQ section that was
shockingly comprehensive, and followed almost
exactly the Board's consensus. Leading from
that, the Trib's John Kass managed to mention
the entire Holy Trinity of Lem's, Honey One
and Gviw in a single column!

And today the "Good Eating" section of the
Tribune joins the party - listing as part of
their "Cheap Eats" section Barbara Ann's BBQ
at 7617 S.Cottage Grove! A good review,
3 "forks", thoroughly deserved high praise of
the tips and links... and, strategically, no
mention whatsoever of the attached "BA's Motel"
which apparently still charges by the hour :-)
