BBQ Event Review: Pints at the Park/The BABAs on Lake Merritt

by | Aug 28, 2017

I feel bad for you if you missed out on the Pints at the Park fun on Saturday!  It was a day full of beer, BBQ and music all taking place on the shores of beautiful Lake Merritt.  Oh and the weather was absolutely perfect!  I’d like to thank G & Pops BBQ, Lord of the Ribs BBQ and Canyon Riders BBQ for coming through on vending.  You guys showed up to cook and served up some terrific BBQ!  True professionals!

Along with Pints at the Park was the first ever BABAs (Beer And BBQ Awards).  We had set up this event as a test run for a possible bigger stand alone beer & bbq event.   We had a few hiccups but it all went down pretty well.  Congrats to Canyon Riders on winning first place overall and taking home this sweet butcher block from MAC Cutting boards.


A big thank you goes out to John of MAC BBQ!  Thank you so much for helping out with the tri-tip, wing and sausage cooking for our VIP/Industry tent.  This thing would not have been as easy without you!



Next up, we’re going full steam ahead on the Mano A Mano Rib Throwdown which is on November 11 at Retzlaff Vineyards.  We can’t wait for this one!!  Once again, we’re full of teams but we will be opening up registration soon for judges.  Stay tuned to here or check out the Mano A Mano Facebook or Instagram for updates.

See you at the grill…
