Country Chow Down: Ribfest in Huizenga Plaza

There's something to be said about cold beer, country music, and barbecue ribs -- it just puts you in the all-you-can-eat, whistling "Dixie" kind of mood. So round up your cowboy boots and line-dance your way over to the Ribfest in Huizenga Plaza.

With the help of country music promoter Joe Gehl and the Downtown Development Authority of Fort Lauderdale, the festivities will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 1, and 1 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Hugh's Catering is the official rib vendor and will offer four 

barbecue flavors. Tickets cost $7.

And while we're all about the food, it wouldn't be a country hoedown without some good, ol'-fashioned twangy music featuring local country music stars Amber Leigh and Shane Duncan along with a live broadcast from 99.9 KISS Country.
