Meat Your Match

Romance may be the key to a woman’s heart, but a hunk of meat is all a gal needs to make a man squirm. The fourth annual Arizona Barbeque Festival will easily meet those requirements with tons of meaty goodness. We can’t guarantee that love will be in the smoky air, but we are certain that all guests will have more than a fair share of finger-lickin’ good BBQ. The saucy shenanigans will be paired with an adult beverage lemonade stand, vodka tastings, a mullet pageant, helicopter rides, eating contests, and a live performance by the ‘80s tribute band, Metalhead. Also on the schedule are Redneck Games, a set of competitive festivities sure to put Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to shame.

Sat., April 20, 11 a.m.-9 p.m., 2013
