I’m so excited I don’t even really know how to start this post.
Rib Fest is back! Yes, Head of the Charles is this weekend. And yes, it’s Food Week in Somerville, and Saturday is Harvest Fest. But Rib Fest is an absolute feast, and I’m thrilled and honored to once again present the festival’s awards.
There are some fun changes to this year’s event, including live music and cooking demonstrations, but my favorite is the new Meateater pass. The Meateater not only lets you sample every last rib at Rib Fest, it also (in a highly undemocratic turn of events) makes your People’s Choice Award votes count three times. Meateater ticket holders are encouraged to consider wearing pants with an elastic waistband and to set aside space on the couch for a post-Rib Fest power nap.
Every good chef knows that you eat with your eyes, so if you’d like to see more mouthwatering photos from last year’s Rib Fest, click here. Yes, I know I’m posting this around lunch time, and no, I don’t feel bad about it.
Come down to Cambridge St. this Sunday from noon to 4pm for Rib Fest. I think you’ll be happy you did.
