From two chef pals (one CIA-trained) who worked together years ago and always called each other "Sparky" in the kitchen, like normal people, and eventually got competitive by taste-testing each other's BBQ experiments, Sparky's feels like a roomy Southern kitchenette with a blond wood bar, rolls of paper towels at the tables, plus bird houses and bull skulls on the wall -- which made more sense space-wise than bird skulls, and bull houses.
