Epicurean Comment: What is needed is fresh potato Curly Q's

BJ Fudge can visualize Big Al's Dream of Big Al's (East Columbia) Bar and Grill. What the restaurant needs - what Columbia needs - curly q, deep fried potates made from fresh potatoes! It's a far piece to get them with the current state of bills of fare in local establishments
This BJF essay raises another fresh potato question for the ages: Does any remember being the operator of the tiny toothed drum which spun potatoes and peeled them in McDonald's of old? - CM

I can see it now, a couple of box trailers for dining and cooking with a flat bed for outdoor and patio dining...Alright. Let me know when you open.

Also, one suggestion would be curly que, french fried potatoes cooked from fresh potatoes. I drove to Glasgow for years to get them at a Dairy Freeze. The only place locally to get them is at the Bowling Alley in C-ville. They're goooood. - BJF
