Bar Q + Restaurant Weeks = 10,080 ways to enjoy the best BBQ in town!

15 snacks x 12 BBQ selections x 14 Fixins x 4 desserts = 10,080 different combinations, all for only $12.12!*

*You don't get all 10,800 combinations for $12.12, just one combination.  But don't worry, you can't go wrong with choices like spicy pork empanadas, chimichurri skirt steak, and fiesta corn bread!

Any math teachers out there?  I need to know how many times I need to go to Bar Q next week to try everything on the menu at least once using the one-from-each-category method.  I think it's some kind of formula like 15(n-1)x12(n-2)x14(n-3)x4(n-4), but 10th grade algebra was a looong time ago.

Ups and downs

Going up: an installation about VHS tapes at Franklin Street Works.  From September 6-October 14, come check out VHS: The Exhibition.

I'll let FSW explain: "Artworks will be accompanied by ephemera from 80's-era home video culture, such as the glitchy computer-generated, anti-corporate corporate spokesman Max Headroom, to give a broad perspective on the cultural shifts created by this technological phenomenon in entertainment, life, and art."

As a movie buff who grew up in the heyday of the VHS tape, this exhibit is a nostalgic trip for me.  I still have a ton of VHS tapes, most of them horror movies I bought from the local mom-and-pop store that was crushed by Blockbuster in the 90s.

In other news...coming down: Saltwater Grille and the office building connected to it.

Hey, maybe they're clearing a permanent home for Melt Mobile!
