Like beer and bourbon, great barbecue takes patience to make and results in one getting sauced while consuming it. Keep your wipes handy with this Groupon.
$39 for One Admission to the Whole Hog Friday Night Pig Pickin Event on Friday, March 23 ($60 Value)
Wristband-equipped guests chow down at numerous tasting stations, savoring meaty treats such as slow-cooked brisket, roasted chickens, and sizzling sausages. Pulled pork freshly shaved from whole hogs populates dinner plates served with a medley of sides, a delicacy which wristbanded attendees alone have the opportunity to dine upon. A souvenir glass provides a vessel for unlimited sips of the many beers and bourbons served at the event's bars, which have doubled in number over last year in order to eliminate lines and employ twice as many local drying cloths.
Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival
Forty varieties of bourbon and 60 beer draughts flow freely from taps into souvenir glasses, slaking thirsty throats with unlimited sips as guests tear through smoky meat concoctions at the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival's tasting stations. Once stuffed with ribs, brisket, and sausage, attendees can retire to the tasting theater to take in a seminar from pit masters and gourmet chefs on preparing fine barbecue or brewing stellar bourbon. Live rock, blues, and bluegrass bands set the airwaves quivering from the main stage with wailing tunes or announcements drawn in barbecue sauce. A cigar tent provides a smoky haven for puffing on fine tobacco products, and big-screen TVs beam the latest sports action directly into eyeballs.
