Madison’s Beachcombers Night 2013

20 Aug

Madison’s Beachcomber Night is an annual August event held downtown and organized by the Chamber of Commerce. Local businesses and the community come together for an evening of shopping, wine and beer tastings, good food, live music and entertainment, plus raffles and prizes. We had a great time meeting new people and chatting to old friends, and spotted some of our favorite customers.

This year, we set up our pop-up shop on the sidewalk next to our friends, CT’s Roadside BBQ. If you haven’t tried this barbeque yet, it’s a real must – and the most authentic wood-smoked brisket, pulled pork, chicken and ribs that you’ll find on the shoreline. (Heck, even Texan’s have admitted to loving it!) You can find CT’s truck parked next to The Little Station at the Beech Tree Cottages on most weekends during the summer. BBQ is ready by Noon, and on a busy day they can sell out by 2 or 3pm. If you’re anxious make sure you get there early, like me. (And no, the pit master can’t just throw on another brisket. CT’s meat cooks overnight for 15-20hrs! It’s Slow Food. Not Fast Food.) Here are some pics from Beachcombers Night…
