This past weekend Z, PapaE, an unnamed fellow foodie friend, and I hit up the ’20th Annual Safeway Barbeque Battle.’ There was a lot of free swag – coffee samples, water bottles, tote bags, egad! But the best part was all of the fantastic barbeque. I had possibly the best brisket sandwich ever from ‘The Tender Rib,’ it had been smoked, sliced, and left to marinate in some sort of heavenly juice. I was hypnotized watching the competitive teams slinging huge slabs of ribs.
There was also a super cool all-girl steel drum band called ‘East of the River.’
