Default Who wants to eat BBQ and drink beer (FREE) at Soldier Field Next weekend? I need volunteers!

Hi there Brethren - we still need some volunteers for the upcoming Windy City BBQ Classic at Soldier Field next Sunday September 1st. In exchange for working a volunteer shift (parking, registration, setup, etc.) you'll attend the event FREE of charge! Sample BBQ from 30 local BBQ joints, hang with your fellow BBQ Brethren that are cooking on the competition side, listen to nationally acclaimed Blues music, watch cooking/butchering demos, enter contests to win smokers & grills...and enjoy Lagunitas Beer/Tito's Vodka Cocktails too! All inclusive, fun filled day of Blues, Brews, and BBQ on Chicago's lakefront Labor Day weekend (Forecast right now shows 88 and sunny all weekend)!

email our volunteer coordinator shawnasolsvig@hotmail.com if you're looking for something to do next weekend and want to part of this great event.

Details:

Man rub, That sounds like a great time. Is this a yearly thing? I could plan for next years. Got a Salmon trip booked in NY.

I went. It was pretty fun. There was a decent turnout as far as spectators goes. I ended up having to leave early because my babysitter baled on me. I ate so much pulled pork and ribs judging the people's choice group that I felt like throwing up! I met Lee Ann Whippen. She was there for her restaurant, Chicago Q and they were competing in the people's choice. Her Q was good but definitely not the best!
