Well, I suppose I have to out myself as being from Alabama. Little secret...it's not as bad as its reputation....y'all. Ha!

Anyway, literary hot spots abound in this state. From classics like To Kill a Mockingbird to modern faves like Forrest Gump. But I live in Birmingham, so those aren't familiar to me.

A place that is familiar, however, is a little meat and three joint on the edge of Birmingham that sits on the railroad tracks in Irondale. It's called the Whistle Stop Cafe. Sound familiar? Little hint: the most popular item on the menu is Fried Green Tomatoes. As in from the popular book from Fannie Flagg.

But to be honest, I don't go for the literary connection - I go for the fried chicken. It is divine.

P.s. nobody really says divine down here. Just in the movies, man. Now, I have to get back home. To Greenbow, ALABAAAAMMMMA!
