the meatening

Canon A1, Ilford FP4 Plus
Kincaid's Meat Market at 56th & Illinois, where the ribbons won by the meat you're eating are hanging on the wall.

My neighbor, who grew up in the neighborhood, says the Starbucks next door used to be a little corner grocery that carried everything but meat. Instead, there was a pass-through between the two shops and, after getting rung up in the grocery, you could push your cart next door into Kincaid's and get your tasty, tasty meat.

EDIT: Bobbi informs me that, between its grocery store days and its current incarnation as a chain coffee joint, it was a Baskin Robbins.
