Weekend Eats

Three Things to Eat, Drink, and Bake This Weekend

BBQ, beer, peaches -- sounds like the makings of a spectacular time!

This weekend is packed full of fun outdoor food events and you better get outside and take advantage of 'em before even just the though of stepping one foot outside gives you a sunburn.

Here's what's on our plate this weekend.

Eat This: Barbecued Everything at the 3rd Annual Arizona BBQ Festival at Salt River Fields. More than 100 local and national barbecue masters will be battling it out this Saturday and Sunday for $40,000 in cold hard cash and a spot at the World Barbecue Championships in Las Vegas this November. Take advantage of this all-out barbecue war by indulging in as many $2 BBQ samples as you can fit into your meat-loving belly. The festival runs Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and tickets start at $12 per person. Get there early for the best parking and the best samples!
