Rock 'n' Roll Beer-B-Que Smokes Out Seminole Hard Rock July 3

Do you like beer? Do you like barbecue? Congratulations on being human! Also: There's an event coming up with your name on it.

It's the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's Rock 'n' Roll Beer-B-Que, and it's landing on July 3. This pre-Fourth of July celebration will bring together all things smoked, grilled, and indelibly yummy with a wide array of beers and live music, all under the banner of open air, grub-as-you-are street festival. It's like a backyard Independence Day cookout with a thousand or so of your closest, sweatiest friends. Oh, and a national recording artist playing the gig, too.

Cooking for the event will be a host of local 'cue and meat-centric

restaurants, each stationed at booths in and around Seminole Paradise

proper. As of now, that list includes the likes of Whiskey Tango, Bru's

Room, Renegade BBQ, Red's Backwood BBQ, Miller's Ale House, and Fort

Lauderdale's own Bar-B-Q Jacks. Seminole Hard Rock is adding more

restaurants every day- you can check the full participating list here.

Plus, expect a contest that will hand out awards for best barbecue in a

handful of categories, from brisket to finger-licken' ribs.  

Of course, good 'cue works up a powerful thirst, and there will be

plenty of beer options to quench it -- in unlimited quantities, no

less. A ticket in will get you free reign over brews like Kona Brewing

Company's Fire Rock Pale Ale and Shock Top Belgian White. Providing the

tunes to go with all that food and drink will be feel-good rock band

Seven Mary Three, they of Cumbersome fame.

The whole shebang takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on July 3, and costs

just $35 in advance ($45 at the door, $75 for VIP). Oh, and since it's

the day before the Fourth and all, the party will culminate in a

fireworks display for the ages.
