On our first wednesday night in Biloxi, we went to The Shed. We had been told Americans like their barbeque, and it turns out that some of them do. Barbeque in the US means a whole lot of slow cooked meat, whacked in a box, and given to you to eat with not quite enough serviettes to remove the evidence of the meal from your face.

This place had it all. A swamp out the back, a broken fish in a broken phone box, and best of all, the fantastic American 'shed' girls who called out names as orders were up in their very southern accents. "Baaaaaaaaart, Baaaaaaaaart"

It sure was tasty, and it gave us our first 'cultural' experience of Mississippi.

Fabulous! And look, The Shed is about to get more famous:

"OCEAN SPRINGS -- The Shed barbecue restaurant's laid-back, shorts-and-flip-flop atmosphere attracts all sorts of unique characters, affectionately known as 'Shed Heads'.

On Wednesday, they added a new member to their ranks -- Guy Fieri, host of the Food Network's popular show 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives'.

"This would be the kind of place, where if I lived within 100 miles, I would be here once a week," Fieri said. "This place is the epicenter of funky."

........... Heh heh. You've been to the "epicenter of funky".
