Chewing the Fat:  This week, Rex and Paul chew the fat about Rex’s Delta food tour he gave some folks from Houston, Texas, the three Delta food groups, the IGA store in Biscoe, the historic and virtually unprecedented addition of an item to the menu at the Jones Bar-B-Q Diner in Marianna, the appearance of His Honor, the Mayor, Cypress Corner at Lexa, Pasquale’s Tamales in Helena, steamboats, how Rex wore out the boys from Houston, the magnificence of Crowley’s Ridge, the Louisiana Purchase monument and its booming tourist business because of Rex and Paul, Murry’s at Hazen and the best onion rings in Arkansas, Paul’s lobbying (that would be whining) to get on the board of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, Paul’s celebrated appearance frying bacon and a bunch of other stuff at the Friends of the Library pancake breakfast at Imdoden, and a great German place—Bavarian, really—at Mammoth Spring. Not “Springs,” so watch it.
