Thanks to everyone who participated in our first Tom Friday’s BBQ & BREW OFF Contest!
We had quite a challenge getting it together and it turned out great despite set-backs. Our two home brewers, Eric and Adam, were so encouraged and happy with the turn out that they are already talking about putting together another home brew Oktoberfest this year!
In addition, Stephen K, our main champ in BBQ got an overwhelming applause by all those who were able to get their hands on his homemade Seoul City Chicken. Thanks & Congrats Stephen!
Sadly, we had a few last-minute contestant cancellations and I tried to improvise to fulfill everyone’s BBQ needs by providing BBQ Tofu and Tom Friday’s BBQ Chicken Deli cuts on the donated kaiser buns from Breadworks. Thanks so much Breadworks! And so sorry to everyone expecting more BBQ. We hope next year others will be able to participate and everyone will be available to keep their commitments!
I was a little late for the follow up on the July event, this project has been a whirl-wind of meeting great folks, getting to know my community, and preparing for more future events and collaborations! Here are a few photos from early set up before I got swept away in the contest. Thanks for understanding and look forward to the next one!
