Fried Green Tomatoes
The best fried green tomatoes in Birmingham are at Andrew's Bar-B-Q in Woodlawn. Av and I were B'ham this week, and I had wanted to go there for a long time, because I *really* like their neon sign, noting "air conditioning" and the little piggy running. The barbecue is just okay, but the fried green tomatoes are the greatest!
Last weekend we spent just a little time in Wetumpka, where Av took a picture of this minnow neon sign at a bait shop.
When I discovered Flickr, I found that one of the photographers had posted a pic of a Mary shrine in Woodlawn - I found it! It's right in front of a downtown business that is subdivided into three or four smaller offices/retail shops. This Mary shrine is on the left-hand wall if you're facing the building....
...and this shrine is on the right-hand side of the building, if you're facing it. I haven't seen these before, built into outside walls of businesses.
