Blogfest 2011 Wild Card — 7.24.11

The long-overdue Blogfest 2011 (aka Hucks Summer Bentfest) is finally here -- from 3 to 6 p.m. today (Sunday), at Steve Widmyer's Fort Ground Grill, 705 W. River Ave., in historic Fortgrounds. Usually, blogfest is somewhere around Feb. 16, the actual anniversary of Huckleberries Online. But we never got around to staging this one until Bent stepped up with his locally renown BBQ and Steve offered his place, along with baked beans, pop, and bottled water, on the house. The rest of the meal will be up to you. Guests are asked to bring a main/side dish, salad, or dessert (named after a Huckleberries theme). Herb/Bay Views has already prepared a batch of his famous potato salad (see photo). But hasn't come up with a name yet. Bent also will provide samples of his recent batch of homemade brew. I'll be there until Steve throws us out of the joint. I hope to see you.
