The annual Kyle Fair and Music Festival unites the community with the smoky flavors of competitive barbecue, the colorful fun of a kid-friendly parade and carnival, and the twangy strains of an eclectic lineup of live music. On Friday evening, Thunderhill Raceway will roar with the sounds of Cheyenne, a country cover band able to replicate Garth Brooks's twang, Kenny Chesney's cowboy-hat silhouette, and Glenn Frey’s egg-laying abilities. Fred Andrews & Honeybrowne then shows off its unique fusion of rock, pop, and country melodies set to narrative lyrics of love won, love lost, and love absentmindedly forgotten on the counter. On Saturday, Grammy-winning Latin funk band Grupo Fantasma delivers songs fresh off its new album, El Existential, and Blue Clear Sky celebrates country monarch George Strait. VIP ticket holders snag the best seating in the venue and enjoy a short stroll back to their vehicle's cushy preferred spot.
Hoping to revive the culture of the neighborhood butcher shop, with its personalized service, attention to detail, and artful products, restaurant-industry veterans Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent took a gamble on their first New Hampshire butcher shop in 2003. Dubbed The Meat House, their store quickly earned a foodie following, spawning additional franchise locations across the country. Today, The Meat House stocks fine cheeses, prepared side dishes, other gourmet grocery items, and hundreds of wines alongside the usual selection of traditional and exotic meats. Butchers also explain how to prepare each hand-carved cut of meat, sharing recipes, best slicing practices, and cooking techniques for giving pork chops the flavor of justice.
More than 30 years ago, Hal and Lisa Berdoll planted an orchard of 5,000 pecan trees. They tended to their crop diligently, and today more than 15,000 trees sprawl across 340 acres, their branches heavy with the weight of their bounty. At harvest time, the family shells the nuts, sells them whole, or creates whimsical treats from them to sell at the family store. There, second-generation Berdolls bake pies, make fudge, churn nut butter, and craft a variety of confections. Among their most popular items are pecan pies sold in a Texas-themed box, pecan clusters, and pecan-flavored pecans.
