not festival news, but GREAT news for the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. This Q looks very promising – have you been there?
■ Kelly and Neal Harris, owners of Neal’s Smokebox BBQ on Polo Club Boulevard, are opening a second restaurant. The Wagon Bones Grill opens at noon Saturday at 591 West Short Street. It serves barbecued pulled pork, sliced brisket, ribs and chicken, grilled corn, potato salad, cole slaw, and macaroni and cheese.
“We smoke our meats for hours and use a Memphis style with the Western Kentucky spin dry rub to form a savory crust,” Kelly Harris said. “Then pull them by hand for the ideal mix of crusty, smoky tender and juicy meat from the inside out. Then we finish them with one of our homemade sauces: a tangy, semi-sweet barbecue sauce or our Western Kentucky dip sauce to complement the spicy rub and smoky meat.”
Call (859) 523-2400 or Smokebox BBQ at (859) 293 9300.
