I’m always looking for places to go on the motorcycle, places with interesting attractions. One spot I’ve had in mind for ages is Jefferson City: We can get there without ever getting on a freeway, and it’s only about a two-hour trip.
I’ve been wanting to take in the State Capitol; Cliff seems less than enthusiastic about this, but sometimes he’ll warm up to a place, once he gets there.
Thanks to Missouri Life magazine, I discovered it’s possible to tour the Missouri State Penitentiary! It must be a pretty popular activity, because you have to schedule in advance. There are no longer any prisoners there, by the way.
Ah yes, the planning of these trips is half the fun; that, and convincing Cliff how much fun we’re going to have at all these places.
Back to Missouri Life: There’s a great article in the latest issue about some people who raise free-range hogs in south Missouri. “Manhattan hot spots like Bar Boulud, Lupa, and Momofuku Ssam not only serve the Newmans’ products, they often give them prime billing on the menu. “BBQ Rib Sandwich (Newman’s Farm, Mo.)” brags the menu at Momofuku.”
Now that’s some classy swine.
