Pike Place is lined with BBQ's!

Last weekend Pike Place Market hosted the 2010 Washington State BBQ Championships. What you just imaged is exactly what it was…both street entrances to Pike Place were closed off and the street right in front of the Market was lined with tents and barbeques and the SMELLS! It…was…heaven…

We started out with the monorail to Westlake (taking a brief minute to think “in less than a month, I’ll be commuting to work on this thing”) and walked down to Pike Place. We saw the tents, we smelled the meat, we got veryhungry! Our first stop was Piroshky Piroshky – how can you not stop there when you’re down at the Market? Beef & Cheese was out so we opted to try Beef & Onion and Ham, Spinach & Cheese…both were good but not as good as Beef & Cheese. If you need a reason to go check this place out, here it is: Anthony Bourdain has been there and loved the food! Be sure to get the Beef & Cheese.

After devouring the piroshky, we were ready to start on some barbeque! However, the participants in the contest weren’t able to give out samples. There was a big red tent you could go to and get a pulled pork sandwich but it wasn’t that great – just a pulled pork sandwich. You can imagine my disappointment.

To make everyone forget about the pain of smelling the great spices and sauces, we decided to head up to Hard Rock Café for a drink. It was such a beautiful day, how can you not stop by a bar with a roof and have a beer. We drank, we enjoyed the weather, and all wished we were in Vegas for the rest of the week…
