Pechanga Pro BBQ Championship
By Joe Martone
Money. Meat. Music. The three M’s of manliness. All of these and more can be yours at the Pechanga Casino this weekend. As tempting as it is to gamble away everything for a chance at the jackpot, make sure you save your moola for the night’s festivities. There’s going to be a variety of vendors there with some of the juiciest and best tasting meats out there, competing for the chance to be A-1. Every good man knows that beer should go dry, so Pechanga is sprucing up the event with a full beer and wine garden on site. The ultimate question will finally be answered: Which drink goes best with your beef? (The likely answer: all of them). The event promises some live music performances as well. Honestly though, you probably won’t even notice the music when there’s prime rib to be had. Come down to Pechanga and nurture all of your vices and addictions. You only live once, might as well enjoy it.
