Show that pig who's boss

There’s no denying that folks in the south love their BBQ, but you might start a fight if you start debating just what kind is the best kind. Carolina or Memphis, Kentucky or Texas, no matter your preference you’ll find it at the annual Atlanta BBQ Festival this weekend. You’ve got live music, some yummy drinks, and things for the kids, BBQ demonstrations and, of course, lots of ridiculously delicious food. And if you have a hankering to taste something different, Friday there will be drumstick samples from the 50 competitors and on Saturday it’s all about the pig. Go hungry and plan to spend the day. Think of it as a day of culture, since you’ll be trying BBQ styles from around the south and beer from all over the world.

Price: $6-$85
