Beer, Bourbon and BBQ
BBQ 5 blog
Last weekend, my husband and I met up with a few friends at the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ festival.

There were sooooo many people there and it shouldn’t be of any surprise that there were a lot of people ready to get their drink on. For $35, you could sample as many beers and “bourbons” (there were other liquors there as well)…they even gave you a glass to get started.

We decided that we were more interested in three things:
  1. Finding a nice shady place to sit
  2. Eating BBQ
  3. Listening to music
So, we found ended up sitting by the Kettle Corn tent. Apparently, kettle corn is a hit. Who knew!

This particular lady decided she was interested in good music and a good book.

I should have taken a picture of my BBQ sandwich, but I was so hungry that I ate it before realizing that I hadn’t taken a picture. So, I know you can’t see it, but it was really good.

After we ate, I thought I’d walk around to see if anything caught my eye. At the time, they were announcing this year’s BBQ winner (I missed it) and then held two competitions. The first competition was the Miss BBQ Festival (I think) – it looked pretty trashy, so I took a shot of the crowd instead. As you might imagine, all the men were paying attention. The second competition was the Mr. Beer Gut, and I really didn’t care to see big beer bellies.

Instead, I walked back over to where we were sitting and spotted this guy with the beard. My first thought was “masculine.” On second thought, perhaps I can find an even more masculine shot, but he looked like he was having a good time.

And finally, I spotted cuteness. On that note, go check out more black and white images at:

On another note…I’m considering changing up my blog and I might need help but don’t know where to start. If you do this type of work or you’re interested in helping me, please leave me a comment or contact me.
