It appears that I will be entangled with BBQ Fest this year in a capacity beyond merely being in attendance. I'm psyched, but more on that later.
And for some other events beyond BBQ... Indie Memphis is presenting a series of Belgian films throughout the month in collaboration with Memphis in May. Next up...
The Barons (Les Barons) 7 pm Thursday, May 12 @ Studio on the Square
From the Indie Memphis website.... "Presented on 35mm film, The Barons tells the story of, Hassan, Aziz and Mounir, three friends who lead a life of pleasant apathy in modern-day Brussels. Calling themselves ‘The Barons,’ they spend their days loafing around in unhurried torpor, bantering between each other and adhering to a curious theory which postulates that the fewer steps one takes in a lifetime, the richer and more satisfying one’s interior life. When real life crashes unpleasantly into their dream world, the three are forced to deal with life, love and the future."
And a couple of upcoming Belgian food and drink events are a Beer Tasting at STAX and a Belgian dinner with Chef Felix Alen at Grill 83
How could a Belgian beer tasting at STAX be anything but cool? Le plus cool, no?
