May 2003 Nax's BBQ
5.69 - 7, 6.5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 4, 4

I don’t know about you, but I kind of like this mystery thing.  May brought all eight of us over the river (the Hudson , that is – a real river) and down the road a ways to the picturesque area of Red Hook.  The hope was that everyone was in the mood for some down home barbecue cooking at Max’s. 
    The up side – I think we all rose to the occasion and some of us even ordered a bit more adventurously than we might normally otherwise.  The barbecue was great (especially the pulled pork), as were the coordinating side dishes.  I was informed that Kenny had Key Lime Pie for the first time in his life.  How had he gotten this far in life without it???
   The down side – I hate to always make this an issue, but for some reason, alcohol seems to come into the picture.  Apparently, the restaurant is know for their margaritas but, upon requesting a pitcher for all of us (you know how thirsty you can get after a long car ride), we were sadly informed that you couldn’t get a pitcher of margaritas.  Oh well, I don’t really believe anybody went thirsty…
