Mmmmm…Downtown was overloaded with the smell of BBQ this weekend! With hundreds of teams competing, over 90,000 in prizes, plus bragging rights… that was enough to get all of Memphis’s to come out and support. They had a numerous contests, including the Mrs. Piggy competition where grown men dress as Mrs. Piggy, a clever name contest, and of course the food tasting contest.
From my point of few , it was one continuous party. Each booth threw a party on Thursday and Friday night and it was wild. Free food, free drinks, and free fun! Of course you gotta know somebody to be invited into a tent but once your in, YOUR IN! Some tents had stripper poles, jello shots, and ice luges. Sounds like a party you don’t wanna miss huh??
