Husband and wife Ashley Burke-Deming Weavil and Matt Weavil have proven themselves as North Carolina BBQ specialists at innumerable pimento-cheese-filled pop-up events during the last two years, and now their roving shrimp-and-grits fest is poised to settle down near the southwestern edge of Prospect Park on Church Avenue. Team Fat Beagle say they've been gussying up their Ditmas Park space — it even has a backyard, ready-made for cocktails and peel-and-eat shrimp — and are angling for a summer opening. The couple has turned to a Kickstarter campaign for a final push of fund-raising. Check it out, straight ahead, and head here for more information.
