So why exactly would people be BBQ'ing in a strip club parking lot at 5 AM?

I go to swim practice eaaarly in the morning. Leave my house ~5:05 AM, 3-4 times a week to go swim with my team from 5:30 to 7 AM.

Now, naturally, one would not expect to see many people on the road that early. No sane person would be up and driving at that hour.

Well, on a very regular basis (at least twice a week), I see a crowd of people loitering about in the parking lot of this strip club. (Before you say it - this strip club is located in a strip mall on a street with a very POORLY timed traffic light, where 90% of the time I get a red-light, enabling me to get a detailed look at the goings-on at this parking lot.) There's probably about 20 or so people and cars gathered in this parking lot. No idea what they're doing - and I don't want to know.

So, as we begin summer, and the season of BBQ-ing (Texans are crazy serious about their BBQ) - I've noticed about once a week that someone has a big truck in this parking lot, with a trailer, and a BBQ smoker on it.

This morning, I saw the truck/trailer/smoker - and people standing around this thing eating, presumably BBQ.

So, what - maybe they spent all night at this strip club, and rather than their body clock telling them its time for breakfast, they think its dinner time? No idea. Creeps the hell out of me, though.

Okay, so just when I thought that situation couldn't get weirder...it did. Now they're BBQing?!! so random.

Too crazy. I'm looking forward to expanded versions of your swimming stories. :-)
