Pig Roast, Food & Drink Specials, Live Music, Apple Watch Raffle and more
WHAT: THE suburb’s biggest outdoor BBQ event of the season, the Rack N’ Roll Spring Smoke Show. Rack House in Arlington Heights will open its massive parking lot and beer garden to house an afternoon of $5 smoky eats and drinks, live music, family activities, prizes and more!
And if the event couldn’t get any better, Rack House will donate a portion of the festival proceeds to the 100 Club of Chicago which provides support for the families of first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Rack N’ Roll Smoke Show Details:
$5 Eats & Drink
Guests can enjoy finger-lickin’ good BBQ right from Rack House’s outdoor smoker including Chef Bryant Anderson’s Hickory Smoked Brisket and Carolina Pulled Pork and BBQ Ribs, plus Corn on the Cob and Homemade Pretzels. BBQ fanatics can also feast their eyes on a whole Pig Roast, rubbed down with Rack House’s signature seasonings and slow smoked for over 24-hours.
AND in honor of National BBQ and Hamburger Months, Chef Bryant has created The Chubby Checker, three-1/4 lb. griddled patties, melted brick cheese, peanut butter, bacon, fried plantains, pickles, and arugula all piled high on a toasted pretzel bun. The special burger ($14) will be available all month long at Rack House and in a “single patty slider” version ($4) at the Rack N’ Roll Spring Smoke Show.
Event goers can also wash down their favorite BBQ eats with $5 Sam Adams brews and, in honor of the 100 Club, 4204 Main Street Brewing’s “Off Duty Lager.”
What better way to relish the start of the warm weather and festival season than with live music from the Moonshine Bros? From 2-5 p.m., guests can dance and sing to a mix of blues, country, Motown and rock hits.
Kids of all ages can take part in face painting, a bounce house, balloon artist, bags and other games all afternoon.
