Wee-Bey Loves Horseradish
Episode Name: "Lessons"
Actual Baltimore restaurant: Chaps Pit Beef
The Barksdale boys go to eat some pit beef (a beloved Baltimore sandwich made with grilled top round shaved thin and served on a sandwich) for lunch. Wee-Bey—the muscle in the group—spreads tons of horseradish all over his order, which elicits a response from D'Angelo: "Damn, Bey, how can you stand that shit with all that hot shit on it?" The stone-cold killer replies, "The trick is not to give a fuck, boy. I got this."
Pit beef acts as both a regional marker for the Baltimore working-class neighborhood where the scene takes place, as well as a symbolic divide between Wee-Bey—the metaphorical "beef" who can dismiss it all—and D, who is incapable of doing such (he is commonly associated with chicken on the show).
Unfortunately, this YouTube clip ends before we see Wee-Bey choke on his super-spicy sandwich.
