Rib Fest is this weekend in Military Park.

Uncle Ted will be there playing live in concert Saturday night!


The ribs are a bit overpriced, but damn, it's only once a year...

DON'T GO TO RIBFEST. Just trust me on this one. I went last year thinking it was going to be really fun. The place was packed, every line was honestly at least two hours long, and that might be an understatement. The ribs were so overpriced, and they screw you by making you buy the tickets to buy the food. It was hillbilly heaven in there too. There are only a few port-o-potties in there too. The ribs are good but it is not worth it at all.

I've been almost every year. Yeah, it IS pricey, but if you go to ANY rib joint here, you get about the same prices. You gotta remember, these are prize-winning ribs, so you're paying a bit more for the creme-de-la-creme.
Look at it like you're going to an award winning restaurant. You tend to pay more for quality.

I personally have found a decent mix of people, yeah there's hillbillies, but there's everything else. Now if you go Fri or Sat nite between 6-9, of course there are going to be lines. That holds true for any event like that. I go in the daytime hours, a LOT less people.

It's all about timing when you go.

In the past I have found the ribs boring and unimaginative. Add that to the too high of price and it just comes out to be an over-hyped pork orgie.

Now if you wanna go up to Highland Michigan, I can show you some DAMM GOOD ribs served with Greek or Caesar salad, spaghetti, potato and yer drink. Rib Dinner for 2 ~$18.00.

And whatz wrong with Hillbillies??????
