I remember hearing about this event. I was so disappointed with the STL Rib America, that I didn't want to go to this one.
Rib Anerica cost us a small fortune for that. If I remenber, it cost the 4 of us $110 to get in and have 4 half slab plate lunchs with 4 - 12oz cans of soda. That was the last time for me.
Maybe others felt the same way?
