Grillin' on the Bay - The Press
We're in today's NY Daily News (page 71) thanks to our favorite journalist, Rachel M. Wharton.
"What better way to welcome spring than with NYC's first real barbecue contest, sponsored by Manhattan's RUB restaurant and Sanctioned by the New England Barbecue Society? Tomorrow, fanatical teams will compete for points based on their chicken wings, fish and pork, working toward state championships and maybe a chance at the international Jack Daniels contest in Tennessee. Teams from around the Northeast, including Brooklyn's Fuhgeddaboutit, are expected to gather at the parking lot of the St. Mark Parochial School at 18th and Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay. Cooks arrive at 6 a.m., but if you want to see the results and maybe get a taste, winners will be announced at 4 p.m. Vendors will also be selling barbecue all day, with some proceeds going to the St. Mark Sports Association. For more, www.stmarksports.org or (718) 769-5374."
I hope that I'll be able to reprint more news articles after the event, but this is a great start. I hope to see you all there!
