Hogs
Hogs for the Cause
Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Place: The Grove at Patriots Point
11AM-9PM
Admission: $35, $70, $200
I will be going here for lunch at around 11:30AM and buying the $35 ticket. This will get me in the event and then I plan on buying 3-4 plates of BBQ all $7 each. Then I’ll head home to prepare of the PopUp Dinner.
Highlights of the Hogs for a cause will be Rodney Scott of Scott’s BBQ in Hemingway, SC. He will lead the group of pit-masters plating up their BBQ for the crowds. Other pit-masters at the event will include Jimmy Hagood, Conyers Family BBQ, Jim ‘N Nick’s, Sweatman’s, Shulers, and Aaron Siegel of Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ. There will also be a list of bands performing while you eat featuring groups like the Dead 97s and Drive-By Truckers.
