World-class BBQ isn’t limited to Texas and Kansas City anymore! Local Elites discovered this when 50 of them gathered at The Smoke Shop this past Wednesday to kick off their September right: with full bellies. Bites included fried chicken and burnt end sliders, sausages with pimento cheese, mac ‘n cheese balls, and a custom menu of bespoke cocktails. As an added surprise, Andy Husbands came to the event in person to meet the Elite Squad and share the value and insight Yelp and its community of active reviewers brings to his businesses.
