From Boney’s Point of View…

At Writer’s Square, that enigma of a mixed-use urban space, the best view of what is going on may be from the corner hosting the Boney’s Pit BBQ Express cart, very near 16th and Lawrence. Every weekday, they fire up the little smoker and start pumping out pulled pork sandwiches, apparently unbothered by the chaos of the continuing re-development of Writer Square.
