Q American Barbeque's Full House Opening Night

Jonathan Eismann's Q American Barbeque is officially open for business. The above image is from 8:52 p.m. at last night's grand opening celebration, which featured free food, free beer, and free shots of liquor.

Chicken, beef, and pork made their way around as samplers in rib, sandwich, and wing form for a ravenous crowd on the Design District's West End with The Cat Daddies rocking live cover sets of classic rock standards.

Why the City of Miami has horse cops we don't know, but they were there too, looking hilarious and probably shitting all over North Miami Avenue. Barbeque is fuckin' awesome regardless, and this joint feels like a hit.
