The meat is on this month with Meat Week 2014. On Sunday, January 26, Meat Week is coming to San Antonio for eight nights of classic American BBQ.
Each night brings in a new venue with fresh smells and tastes of pork, brisket and ribs. This year’s hosts for the meat festivities are The Point Park and Eats (24188 Boerne Stage), Big Bob’s Burgers (100 N Santa Rosa), Alamo Beer (718 North Cherry), Tucker's Kozy Korner/Cullum's Attaboy (1338 E Houston), The Granary ‘Cue and Brew (602 Avenue A), The Big Bib BBQ (104 Lanark), Branchline Brewing Co. (3633 Metro) and Taps y Tapas (1012 N Flores).
Meat Week began in 2005 in Tallahassee, Florida with co-workers Chris Cantey and Erni Walker dreaming of a holiday in which BBQ was eaten every night of the week.
