FoodWire: Pappy Birthday! BBQ Haven Pappy's Smokehouse Turns Two With a Bash
|Last year's guest of honor|
Expect a heavy turnout. Last year's party brought out a long line of pork lovers: Our own Ian Froeb waited (happily) for 40 minutes; even Mayor Francis Slay showed up to grab some grub. Pappy's manager Ryan Hanephin said he's planning on 700 to 1,000 visitors tomorrow.
If an excellent meal isn't enough to lure you (wait, why are you reading this again?), the good people at Pappy's will be raffling off three prizes to benefit the Catch a Dream Foundation: a baseball bat and jersey signed by Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, to name a couple; and also a Pappy's whole hog party for you and 60 of your barbecue-loving friends.
Tickets are $2 for the merchandise raffle and $5 for the party; drawings will be held at 4 p.m. Get there early to get in on all the action.
