Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle 2015 - Day 2 Photo Recap

Hello Wilbur!

What a difference a day makes. Thousands of hungry festival goers descended upon Pennsylvania Avenue, NW for the final day of the 23rd annual Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle; and unlike yesterday, weather wasn't a factor. If anything, it allowed folks a chance to salvage one of DC's best annual foodie weekends. It's a little late in the game; but if you haven't had a chance to get down there, it doesn't officially wrap up until 7:30 tonight... Just in time to catch the Chuck Brown Band and/or the award ceremony, beginning at 6:30 PM.

Highlights from today had to include ChobaniSara Lee Snacks & Silk giveaways, the media tent (thanks Meghan and Paul) and some of the best pork in town, courtesy of The Grill Crashers.
