The Battle of Lexington Now Involves Barbecue

Skewering the competition!
Skewering the competition!

Lexington is always a hot spot on Patriots Day, rife with Minutemen scampering about in short pants and wigs. It’s also the site of this weekend’s Lexington Battle Green BBQ Festival. Instead of smoking canons, well, they’ll smoke ribs instead. It happens on Saturday starting at 11 and Sunday at noon. Spicy!

The roster includes Blue Ribbon, Lester’s, and other local ‘cue pits, plus there’ll be live entertainment (of course!) and BBQ demos. After you load up smoky, delicious meat, head across the street to Rancatore’s for ice cream.
