GettinSauced.com is live! Check it out to see who's taking part in this year's 3rd annual Gettin' Sauced! BBQ sauce contest & festival. This year's event, presented by Taste of the South Magazine, is Saturday, October 27, at Hops & Grain Brewery in Austin. The event runs from 3-6 PM, but those with a VIP pass can enter at 2:30 and snag some food from (and chat with) the BBQ & BBQ-sauce proprietors in the BBQ Corridor.
On the website, you can peruse door prizes, the music lineup, and sponsors, as well as get a current list of sauce contestants and BBQ booths. As for tickets, here's the deal: Entry is free and includes live music and the cold refreshments from Hops & Grain. If you wish to sample the BBQ and/or BBQ sauces that will be served in our BBQ Corridor, you will need a BBQ-sampling wristband ($10 at gate, $8 online). The VIP pass ($25 at gate and online) includes a BBQ-sampling wristband, a Gettin' Sauced! pint glass, a Gettin' Sauced! koozie, The Q Card, and a 1-year subscription to Taste of the South magazine. And, like I said, you can enter at 2:30, before the general-admission gate opens at 3! So, to recap...
