Do you like ribs? Is there even more than one answer to that question?

I decided to torture myself by writing this post because I came home from Florida with zero groceries in the kitchen and zero time to get any.

Welcome to Michelbob’s. The world’s most amazing ribs. There is never a time when I go to Naples, Florida and I do not go to Michelbob’s. It’s a given.

Grandpa asks, “Is there anything you want to do while you’re here?”

I say, “Michelbob’s.”

And then E and I text photos of the food to our dad to make him jealous. One year in college, my friends Kayti and Nora came with me to Michelbob’s and we even had a Michelbob’s boyfriend (a cutie server). Now that is commitment.

But how can you not like it?

It’s kitschy, they give you soda in GIANT plastic cups, AND it’s full of old people. Old people who were getting a little tooo rowdy for Grandpa and Evelyn(my step-gma?)’s taste this last time, actually. All I have to do is go to Michelbob’s and know that when I am 85, life will be nothing but a par-tay! With ribs!

And they are THE BEST RIBS IN NORTH AMERICA which we know because they ship their ribs and barbeque sauce anywhere in America by next day air! Can you imagine?

Another thing you should know about Naples, Florida. There’s this insane store called The Best of Everything and they are Everywhere and they really are The Best of Everything. Or so all the ladies think because it is PACKED. It’s basically all different kinds of jewelry and bags and whozerwhatsits and there were stuffed animals even and who knows what else… oh yah, TIARAS!

But anyway, Emily and I went ahead and made purchases of matching headbands!

Woo woo! We are so Southwest Florida. :)

What is thaaaaat?! It’s the best black-eyed-pea salsa this side of the Mississippi! I told you I have a favorite restaurant in the West Village and this is what it is: Cowgirl. Cowgirl! I love it! I can think of 18 bajillion people I have taken here and all 18 bajillion people love it. It’s Tex-Mex and it’s kitschy and this salad is the best thing in the whole wide world:

It’s All Chopped Up and it’s got chicken and avocado and apples and pecans and lemon poppy seed dressing and there is nothing better. Nothing, I tell you. I crave it probably once a week.

So there you have it. Cowgirl: my favorite casual restaurant in all of NYC. I’m thinking of all the friends I’ve taken there over the years and it’s pretty much everyone who’s ever been in town, so if you’re not on that list, you should be sad. And get on it immediately.
