Gapers Block presents its First Annual BBQ-Bowl, co-sponsored and hosted by Club Lucky, Saturday, February 4th from 12pm to 3pm.
Join us for an afternoon of tangy-sweet indulgence at its very best. Representatives from legendary Chicago barbecue joints and restaurants, including Honey 1 BBQ, Honky Tonk BBQ, Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro, The Piggery, Pork Shoppe, Rub BBQ Company and Club Lucky, will cook up some their finest smokey treats for you to savor and taste... or just devour whole.
$25 at the door will get you admission, one tasting from each BBQ contestant, and your choice of two Southern-inspired sides, generously prepared by Club Lucky’s Executive Chef Alfredo Anaya. Additional tastings and sides may be purchased for $3 per ticket.
Club Lucky’s bar will be mixing up cocktails and dishing out beers all afternoon. And Koval Distillery will be conducting FREE tastings of several of their best organic whiskeys.
Feeling full? Cast your vote for the "People's Pick” award at our polling booth. A panel of esteemed judges will also vote for the "Critic's Choice" award. This year's champions will be announced at 2pm.
Live music by soul group The Congregation will top off the finger-licking afternoon, and food and drink will remain available after the winners are chosen.
