Growing up raised by TV, we looked to its different moms for particular needs: Claire Huxtable wisely meted out discipline, and Angela Bower encouraged us to take up man-nanny jobs in order to sleep with moms. Providing for your belly's needs, Louise Jefferson, at Weezy's Movin' On Up Cafe
Spacious but homey with brick walls, rustic red paint, and a stage backed by street-ward looking plate glass, Weezy's is a BBQ joint & live music venue hatched by Sanford Sanford, who is clearly the son of The Jeffersons' Isabel Sanford. The dearly departed matriarch's influence is all over the grub, starting with her recipes for collards and mac, which you can plop down next to ribs & tips, sausage links, chicken quarters, blackened salmon/catfish/tilapia, or the massively unhealthy "Obama Burger": two 6oz Angus patties w/ cheese, onion rings, bacon, and mayo -- described by the POTUS himself as his dream burger, though America'd rest easier if he just smoked cigs. As for the jazz and r&b artists Sanford Sanford's bringing in, he's in a good position to judge quality, having played with Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones, and having been influenced early on by Jefferson next-door-neighbor "Helen Willis" -- who birthed Lenny Kravitz, and most likely frapped David Bowie during one of his male phases
Booze tends towards the southern comfy (the Jack/triple sec "Weezy's Lemonade"; "Weezy's Iced Tea"); oddly, complimentary chair massages are also offered -- making the masseuse your personal Marge Simpson, because who else would rub the shoulders of a rude drunk who ate too much?
