BBQ, Bourbon & Beer Vendor Information

All participants will benefit from exposure on our website and in the program.

Restaurants

Parking will be available in The Hall Arts garage.

The event will be the tasting type event, with the chef, owner or representative of the restaurant serving the food. The type of setting gets the public close to the chefs/owners of their favorite restaurants and allows them to meet the individuals responsible for the great food and experiences that they have had and to discover new ones. People will have access to the different stations where small samples of one or two of that restaurant’s signature items are available.

The table is also an opportunity for you to market your restaurant. We suggest that you provide menus, wine lists, critical press, or anything else that will promote your restaurant. We also suggest that you decorate your table with flowers, glassware, china or anything else that suggests your aesthetic.

Please bring your mise-en-place as possible, as well as whatever equipment you can carry. Because of the numbers involved, it is suggested that you choose your dish carefully. Terrines, roulades, ballotines, or poached mussels work well in this situation because they require very little onsite preparation. You will be provided a prep area, but extra equipment and space for storage and prep work will be very limited.

Each restaurant must provide a list of representatives who will be attending the table(s).

Please email jhewitt9695@gmail.com this list by July 30th so that we can create badges.

Badges will be given to you at the event registration table upon arrival on Friday, August 26, 2022.

We allow no more than three servers per eight-foot table space. If you need additional badges, you must request them in advance. IF WE DO NOT HAVE A BADGE FOR YOU, YOU MUST PURCHASE A TICKET IN ORDER TO ENTER THE MEYERSON.
