I think I had one of the best weekends of the summer, and it was mostly in downtown Fresno. The Central California Invitational Rib Cook-off was a big success in numbers — drawing 10,000. I had a good time out there grubbin’. Sure, the food was a little pricey and the waits were a little long. But I suppose that beats the alternative of nobody being there. I hope it comes back next year bigger and better.
Here’s a video I put together from my rib journey on Saturday. Anybody try anything that was really yummy and care to share? Also: Anybody heard who won?
Also, the Mayer Hawthorne show at Frank’s Place on Saturday night was just wonderful. There was a big crowd, Hawthorne’s band (The County) was really good and he was charming the heck out of the people of Fresno. Here are a couple videos I snagged from the show:
