Lillie’s Q Re-Opening Set For Mid-June; Competing in Memphis in May This Weekend

Here’s news that is being greeted with general happiness and good thoughts: Charlie McKenna’s Lillie’s Q is expecting to reopen its main Wicker Park location by mid-June after its devastating March fire. McKenna has kept busy on the local scene since the event, with the help of his French Market neighbor Ovie Bar & Grill, which has allowed him to use its facilities to make barbecue for the market and for events like Cochon 555. This weekend will be the biggest event he’s been to since the fire: Memphis in May, perhaps the top barbecue competition in the world, where he won a 1st in whole pork shoulder in 2007, among other prizes; follow the team at Lillie’s Q’s Facebook page.
