A Brew-B-Q Weekend

This weekend seemed to just fly by, more so than usual. Friday night, "R" and I went and purchased wedding bands! Very exciting. Then, we headed over to Cork & Cleaver Social Kitchen for a fabulous meal, once again. They just do not disappoint.

Saturday came, and the morning was spent doing errands and cleaning the house. All of a sudden, it was the afternoon, and it was time to head to Whiskey Island's Brew-B-Q, hosted by Great Lakes Brewing Company, to benefit The Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland. I think Cleveland was graced with one last summer day on Saturday, and the weather was perfect for this outdoor event in the park.

The sun was shining, boats were bobbing on the lake, dogs were frolicking in the water, and there was some delicious BBQ food and brews to be had.
We wandered around, enjoyed the live music, had a 50 West Brewing Company stout, and started to grab some food. We shared a taco from Barrio, sliders from The Proper Pig Smokehouse, and... obsession with meat on a stick was indulged by Bacon on a Stick from The Proper Pig.
However, my favorite thing that we ate on Saturday came from Sauced Wood Fired Pizza.
They were serving up some delicious wood-fired pizzas, including a BBQ Pork with pulled pork, pineapple, bacon, and BBQ sauce.
I want more. They weren't allowed to compete in the official BBQ challenge, but they would have gotten my voting ticket, if I could have.

What a great day at the lake, and I hope that this becomes an annual event for The Hunger Network.

Disclosure: I was provided with two media passes to attend the event, and two tickets to give away, in exchange for a giveaway blog post. I was not asked to share my experience after the event, but chose to do so. All opinions stated are 100% my own.
