The Black Hollies meet Khadijah, owner of Philadelphia Water Ice, a small bangin' steak shop next to The Red And The Black, the venue where the band performs previously during the evening. Khadijah posts up late night to keep an eye on her shop. Business savvy to say the least, Khadijah offers The Black Hollies countless gems regarding livliehood, the most important being, "If it don't make dollars, it don't make no sense."

The license plate of Khadijah's Benz speaks volumes. Four Black Hollies agree that Philadelphia Water Ice churns out cheese steaks that bury those of tourist trap Pat's in Philadelphia where Khadijah is officially from.

Grapevine, TX - Memphis, TN

Friend of Foodman and father of Palestinian Bluetooth, John Forsdahl, catches up with HJWV in Grapevine, TX, over breakfast at the Embassy Suites. Forsdahl is in town gigging with The Bob Paulding band. Over breakfast Forsdahl recounts an incident in 1973 where he consumes an entire sleeve of Saltine crackers without water after dropping two hits of Double Barrel Orange Sunshine which leads to a bad trip on account of him feeling like a choking pelican. It should be noted that Forsdahl, out of the goodness of his heart takes malfunction plagued Palestinian Bluetooth down to Autozone to have a new battery installed while The Black Hollies catch up on their beauty rest after arriving through the night from Las Cruces, NM, with only a couple of hours to spare before having to leave for Memphis, TN. Thanks Papa Bluetooth! We love you.

*This rejected omelette incident marks the third time that HJWV denies consumption. He cites an odd and unwanted smoky flavor in his omelette as the root cause. It shall be noted that June 1, 2008, also marks Foodman's most amazing day of consumption. Please do not confuse the food with the man and please refrain from attempting to duplicate Foodman's regimen.
