Update: The winner of the pair of tickets is Chris Warren! Congratulations!
Beer and BBQ are two of our favorite things and if you’re a true American, you think so too. If you disagree, well, we think you should be deported to some far off land where there is no beer and the closest thing to BBQ is a McRib sandwich. But, you read our blog, you think like us, and you have great taste so there won’t be any problems at all.
So, let’s kick off spring and BBQ season in Danbury with a brand new festival put on by Townsquare Media (Kicks 105.5 andi95): The Brews & BBQ Festival. It’s being held at the Ives Concert Park in Danbury on May 17 from 3-10 pm. Tickets are just $15 online or $20 at the event. Once you have your tix, you’ll get access to the great BBQ and burgers that are up for purchase, there will be plenty of ice cold beer for you to buy and sip/down, other items to purchase, and there will be music from Cabinet and Amy Helm.
If you’d like a free pair of tickets, all you need to do is comment on this post, telling us what your favorite tip for BBQing is. The contest starts now and goes until Thursday, 5/8/14, at 6 pm. At that time, we’ll select a winner, will update this post with the winner and will share it on Facebook too.
