Texas Monthly’s annual TMBBQ Fest returned for its seventh year! BBQ fans sampled smoked goodness from 27 BBQ joints off the magazine’s list of “The 50 Best BBQ Joints in the World!”  Guests indulged in as much ‘cue as their stomachs would allow, plus Shiner Beer and Legacy Whisky cocktails and enjoyed giveaways and interactive games by sponsors Nationwide Insurance, Texas A&M University, YETI Coolers, and Central Market. Guests also enjoyed live music by Santiago Jimenez Jr. and Warren Hood.
