And, as it would seem, this is all about eggplant and Mario Batali.
The other two trips are taekwando related. One is our annual trip to Little Rock, Arkansas for the American Taekwando Association World Championship, held during the end of June. Besides enjoying everything that goes with this event - the opening ceremony, the competitions, the sights around town, the traditional dinner with friends before heading back home - there are the extra "vacation days" planned around non-ATA places. Last year we stopped on our way up in Memphis, ate some awesome food at Interstate Barbecue (you have not lived until you have eaten Bar-B-Q Nachos and Bar-B-Q Spaghetti) and went to pay our respects to The King at Graceland.
