The Meat Sweats


Apparently there is a known or fictional physical condition on this here mighty orb called "The Meat Sweats", which may or may not befall you after you have eaten an entire rack of baby backs, er something, maybe a whole Costco chicken which a friend of mine claims to have done on at least one occasion, or perhaps the time you slammed the Emperor's 32oz. cut of Prime Rib as outlined on the menu at John Ballzell's Prime Rib World in Duluth. Whatev. I am a meat eater by trade, and I do not believe I have ever experienced "the meat sweats". I did, however, totally crack up the first time I saw talented actress/comedian and insurance advertiser Stephanie Courtney in this Progressive Insurance commercial mention said condition. So funny.

When we moved out here to Grays Harbor County, in 2018, we didn't exactly experience culture shock, but Marie and I have both noticed some very interesting cultural stuff, which we enjoy chatting about when we see or experience something that seems to be a Grays Harbor "thing". Like, for example, take chicken gizzards.


Not one of my faves. I mean I'll eat'em. However, yeah, not big on the gizzards. But I swear to you there are what I feel is an abnormal number of restaurants out here that feature the lowly gizzard on their menu. Not feelin' the cheeseburger today? Hell! Go with the gizzards then! Cuz you may want to chew each one of them somewhere in the neighborhood of 9000 infinity. Everybody's doin' it! I guess. "Did you want some ranch or fry sauce with those?"


Another interesting offering, which I myself am so very down with, is "Prime Rib Nights", at many eateries here. So since I love me a big ol' hunk-o-rare-prime-rib, just about any night, maybe a few nights in a row, thought I would throw down a list of such places and when they are serving Prime Rib, here in Grays County, below. Since you, and I, might wanna give gettin' the blinder meat sweats a try.

So here is a list of our local prime rib joints. My goal is to have one piece of prime rib at them all, and then start over. I have them organized by days of the week. In case you want to go every day for a week.

Actual piece of prime rib I was once served in Canyonville, OR




And lastly, and perhaps not very shockingly, I once wrote and recorded a song that has prime rib in it, well, "rib-eye steak" to be exact, which is grilled prime rib, titled "Food Chain", here.
