Wrap up your weekend with a little bit of competition at the BBQ Food War at Noca. Sunday August 15th Chris Curtiss of Noca takes on Joe Johnston of Joe's Real BBQ in a brisket battle where the guest decide you take the cake. Speaking of cake, there will also be a cupcake challenge between Tammie Coe and The Coffee Shop in Gilbert. $35 plus tax and gratuity reservations are required.

You're Making What?
This might be one of the most disgusting recipes we have come across in awhile. Blogger RetroRuth from No Pattern Required has been on the hunt for the most foul Mid-Century recipe she can find and boy did she find a winner. Jellied Tongue. Say what you will about tongue, but making a jello mold out of tongue juice, tongue pieces and of course, hard boiled eggs can not be good. Check out the recipe here, complete with plenty of pictures.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
