Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
Plough and StarsPatrick Campbell
So, according to you,
the Plough serves the best grits in town at brunch time. But what, exactly, are
grits?Grits are a porridge-like Southern delight that have lots of
butter and cheese, if they're cheddar grits. But you can pair them without as
much cheese, or pair them with shrimp, et cetera. My girlfriend's from South Carolina, so I've
had lots of really good Southern grits and sorry attempts at grits out west. A
good measure of grits is if they're semi-viscous and congealed a little bit,
they're good grits. If they're soupy, they're bad grits. If they're watery,
they're bad grits. ... I know more about grits than I thought.
If you could be mayor
of a star - as in a celebrity - who would you pick?I hear Ryan Reynolds is in town. He seems like a cool guy.
What would you
command Ryan Reynolds to do?I don't think I would command him to do anything. I'd be
like, "Hey, Ryan Reynolds, want to hang out? Want to get some grits at the
Plough?" If he didn't, and I really wanted to, I would drag him along. But
you've got to be democratic about things.
