If you're in the city this weekend, may we recommend interrupting your normally scheduled programming for a real down-home southern-style BBQ? That's right, your Saturday pre-gaming routine just got some spice care of designer Billy Reid. The CFDA winner, known as the king of "Southern-bred luxury", is letting you get in on some comfort food with an in-store BBQ from famed Alabama joint Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q, who is putting on the bash in conjunction with the Eighth Annual Big Apple Bar-B-Q Block Party, a proud sponsor of the Southern Foodways Alliance. So, stop by for some local brewskis, pork tacos, and, of course, slow-roasted bbq from a pig roast that'll be on display. We're a'fixin' to see y'all there.
