Taxidermy and Bar-B-Q

Sunday BBQ buffet was pretty good, especially for the price.

This buffet is brought to you by Wally the Water Buffalo.


Taxidermy and Bar-B-Q

Don't let the unassuming octagonal building fool you. Mikeska's BBQ is a treasure trove of taxidermy! Dine under the baleful gaze of a Noah's Ark full of creatures and then take your after dinner mint from the baskets held by stuffed polar bear cubs (dressed up in cheerful red bow ties).
