The Florida Keys or Key West - real grouper , conch fritters, stone crabs, fresh tropical fruit, Key lime pie. Found this, uh, unattractive but packed-with-Keys-recipes site: Florida Keys Treasures Misc. Recipes

This sounds good: Old Sour Seafood Salad Recipes at Cooking.com Might have to make that myself

Well, the problem with that is VeraBlue is in New York and Paris is not exactly a "road trip"

Or you could use Hickory, NC (yes, that's me ) and do beer butt chicken since that seems to be what people request - I'll give you my rub recipe if you want. And my mother's Macaroni Salad - it belongs at every cookout!
Okay...I've done so many 'trips'...Charleston was my low country trip, complete with Frogmore stew. Gee, how many people asked me if there were frogs in it??

Okay, the winner for next week is Memphis, TN!
I'm thinking from there I'll do the Keys with the Grouper and cuban sandwiches.
From there....San Francisco with bread boulles filled with all types of seafood chowders.

You realize I have to sell these ideas to my client. I loved the Cincinnati chili idea, two way, three way, etc... He seems to believe that if it doesn't involve tons of meat it won't sell.

Thanks to all of you for your great ideas, and please keep them coming. This is only the 7th week of the year!!!!

Vera, also popular in the Keys is Cuban Mojo pork, either a platter or a sandwich. Here is a link on how to make them...

How about Lancaster PA? Isn't that the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking? It's identifiable to most people, I think

I know nothing of their cuisine. This website can give you ideas.

Send a message via Yahoo to ChefJune
when I read your post, several things popped right into my head:

Beer and Brats in Milwaukee
chowderfest in Boston (or Thanksgiving in Plymouth, the birthplace of the holiday)
Crabs in Bawlmer (Baltimore, that is )
hotdogs, hamburgers and the ice cream cone all come from the 03 St. Louis World's Fair...

Louisville, KY.. mint juleps, Derby Day

Seafood chowders don't come from SF... That's Cioppino 's home. Chowders are East coast. Manhattan and New England.. don't sound like San Francisco to me...

ChefJune - beer and brats - Milwaukee came to mind to me as well - a good theme for Oktoberfest.
