Studio Square's Summer Spit BBQ is Back
Last year's first Summer Spit BBQ event at Studio Square was a huge success, and by the looks of it, it's become an annual event. Happening again this year on June 3rd, Chef David Burke will once again grace everyone with his presence at the bbq pit.
Enjoying last year's event very much, I most admired Chef Burke's participation in the whole thing, as he worked his butt off and personally greeted guests and served them freshly made bbq specialties. It was really something, and as you can see above, I cozied up to him as well. He was super friendly!
But aside from the celebrity chef interaction, the food at the event was really fabulous and so plentiful. In addition to the gorgeously prepared food, served buffet style, there were also passed hors d'oeuvres as well Jim Beam tastings. It's really a great way to spend an entire afternoon with your hard-core foodie friends. The tickets are an investment, but definitely worth it, as you can stay for up to 5 hours and eat all the goodies you like. There's an early bird special going on right now:
General Admission tickets (before 4/15): $55, regular admission is $65
VIP tickets are $85
RSVP and buy tickets here. Can't wait to hear what you think of this impressive glutton-fest.
