From their blog:
Over the summer, we've been enjoying quite a few Friday barbecues in our back alley, and issuing challenges on HappyMedium's Facebook Page, so we thought it was about time we lived up to our word and invited our neighbors (and other marketing and design friends) over for a friendly BBQ competition.
Seven agencies are participating for the title, Best in BBQ, which will be decided by a very respectable panel of judges:
- Three-time James Beard Foundation Nominee and Chef/Owner of Niche Restaurant, Gerard Craft
- Executive Director of Food Outreach, Greg Lukeman
- Executive Chef of Bogart’s Smokehouse, Skip Steele
Challengers include: Switch, Scorch, Toky, Marketplace, HappyMedium, Spot Creative and Atomicdust. (We're expecting big things from Marketplace since this is their forté).
We'll have plenty of BBQ (including vegetarian options for you non-meat eaters!), beverages and even bluegrass music, thanks to Charlie Haller and the Bates Street Band. All we ask is that you consider bringing a donation for our friends at Food Outreach St. Louis.
Although they might saaaay it's friendly, you can expect some serious competition when a trophy of this caliber will be going home with the winner:
