Happy Birthday, Miss Nell!
In the endless list of why I love it here, this is the second staff birthday party I've stumbled onto at Zeeland Street Market in the last month. In order: the birthday girl about to add my contribution to her birthday money, right after shouting "Put some music on! It's a party!"; the cake and balloons; the sign outside; and the grilled black drum with mango salsa, cornbread and black eyed peas. Zeeland's happens to have the best lunch plates in town, but I'd eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich just to bask in the presence of Stephanie and Stacy and Miss Nell and the rest of the fine soul-food-cookin' women up in that place.
