Atlanta BBQ Festival

7th Annual Atlanta Bar B Q Festival

Write up by: Letitia Rivers

Date: August 15, 2015

So here we have it. The 7th Annual Atlanta BBQ Festival Cook-Off and Competition has come and gone and I am pleased to say that it was a huge success!

This year Six Twelve Magazine was able to meet with many of the vendors and visitors of the festival to see how they were enjoying themselves and with smiles on their faces everyone stated that they were having a great time and are looking forward to next year.

Some of the vendors that were present were Swine & Shine BBQ, Runaway Smoke BBQ, Hired Guns and Ben Hill BBQ just to name a few, whom all received awards for their excellent tasting food. There were also fun activities for the children which made for an enjoyable and fun filled family weekend outing.

Six Twelve Magazine was also able to walk through the Taste of ALABAMA BAR B Q Museum which was a phenomenal experience. The museum featured a mini film which shared the history of the many popular and historical Bar BQ restaurants that are present in each city in Alabama.

The live entertainment was AMAZING with and awesome closing act being brought by none other than Brother Hawk.

Six Twelve Magazine Rates the 7th Annual Atlanta Bar B Q Festival with an A+ and we say Job Well Done!

 

Insta Work Networking Event

Social Network, it’s not just about how many followers, likes and comments you can get. Two main reasons for these platforms are to be social and networking. At the #instaworknetworking event brought to us by Adrena- CEO of Creationz from a Dove, we did just that.
From artistry and event planning to food and Liq’Her, Paragon 7 housed all things entrepreneurial. Imagine the benefit of just being in that environment, the motivation you obtain from hearing those who struggled and still found the strength to make a dream come true.
This was an event to receive marketing advice and information on using social media to benefit your company and your brand. This event gave businesses, whether up and coming or established, a platform to essentially say I am here, please support me while also taking note that support is much more than a “like” or “share”. But the evening wasn’t all business, there were musicians, poets and storytellers to please our ears and stimulate our creativity.
For those who have a dream business or even an idea, Insta Work is the event for you. Don’t miss out next time-I am the ‘I told you so’ type.
