Things To Do

Tobacco Road's Red, White and Booze (Pictures)

Tobacco Road held its Red, White and Booze party, featuring food and drink from over a dozen food trucks and American micro-breweries and distilleries, though Budweiser and Bud Light seemed to still be the reigning king of beer.

Live music, contests, and even psychic readings had the crowd revved up for a fun and tasty kickoff to the July fourth weekend. A bartending competition and watermelon seed spitting contest (the longer the distance, the better the prize) rounded out the evening's festivities.
