Pig-a-Poole-ooza!

For a while as an adult, birthdays weren’t much fun. They weren’t awful, but they weren’t the sugar-loaded happy fests of childhood. Then we had a child, and as he got older, birthdays started becoming more enjoyable. His enthusiasm for me turning another year older is cute and contagious, so now I’m excited too. What better way to celebrate my birthday on the blog this week than by sharing a bbq place in East Ellijay, GA, that I strongly suspect is like no other bbq restaurant in the country?

This is Poole’s BBQ. From this picture, it appears to be a fairly standard bbq restaurant. The yellow pig on the top, with the restaurant’s name painted on his side, and the multiple painted pigs on the yellow siding, are nothing out of the ordinary. The yellow pig sign on the post with the restaurant’s July 3rd hours is a nice touch, though a bit out of season since we visited in August. The plastic pink pig bin–which to me looks like a Little Tykes toy box–is really the first hint to me that this place is a little unusual. Just how unusual is Poole’s? Come back tomorrow to find out!
