Save the date for the 2nd Annual “Red, White and Blue Barbecue” on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 11.30 a.m.-5 p.m. in Downtown Savannah’s Ellis Square. The event, which is co-hosted by the annual Savannah Food & Wine Festival, will feature a wide array of barbecue and other foods from well-known local restaurants as well as live entertainment.
People will be invited to “donate for a plate” with a $15 minimum suggested donation. Anyone who signs up to be a member of the Two Hundred Club that day will be entitled to a free plate of barbecued pulled pork, spare ribs, coleslaw, baked beans and Texas toast. Businesses and eateries who’ve agreed to generously donate food for the occasion include Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp, Savannah Lodging, G.C. BBQ and Ruby Tuesday. Leopold’s Ice Cream will serve some of their signature frozen desserts. An assortment of drinks – provided by Coca-Cola, Southern Eagle, Service Brewery and United Distributing – will be sold. Anyone who wants to pre-order a plate can do so by going to twohundredclub.org. Pre-ordered meals will be available for drive-thru pickup between 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in Ellis Square.
As attendees enjoy good food and friends, several local bands – including Keith and Ross, In For A Penny, and Bottles and Cans – will provide music.
