Johnny V's Kicks BBQ Up a Notch

Don't try this at home.

On Fort Lauderdale's Las Olas, on the last Thursday of every month, Johnny V is staging Barbequlooza for $4 per person. Oops, must have mis-read – that’s $40 per person. Sound a little dear for barbecue? Maybe not, considering that last month’s menu opened with a cocktail hour featuring Watermelon mojitos, melon martinis, and catfish and cornbread crostini (genius!), and moved on to “green eggs and ham” (deviled eggs with Serrano), chipotle baby back ribs, “Southern-style fried chicken with white trash gravy,” 10-hour smoked beef brisket, Haitian mango coleslaw, and more in that thoroughly delightful vein. The next Barbequlooza takes place on July 31. Call 954-761-7920 for reservations or go to www.johnnyvlasolas.com.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
