It's 12:30 in the after- noon at Frank's Meat & Produce in the Audubon neighborhood and cars are wedged tight like books on a bookshelf. I think I see an opening, an opportunity to jerk the wheel 90 degrees, then a little more, and settle into a spot by a gate. A blockade of Ford F-150s on the other side of that opening foils my plan. Then, a voice. A head pops out of a pickup's window. "I'm leaving!" a man calls. Once parked, I notice the car next to me. Three men, all slightly varied versions of one another — graying mustache, glasses, a muted, professional style that heavily suggests a career in IT — shove chili and ham- burgers into their mouths, so entranced by their lunch that the driver keeps the car in idle. Cold December air whips about, carrying with it the unmistakable scent of pork on the grill. Inside, a line snakes from the meat counter around displays of apples and jars of honey. As more people crowd in, the line to order figure-eights into the checkout line. But many here are regulars. They know what to expect. There's the cop who comes just about every day, the Fair- grounds crew, the burly airport workers — their cheeks full, wind-lashed and rosy.
