Ted’s Butcherblock will kick off the summer with its annual Backyard Barbecue Bash. What says summer better than a slammin’ Painted Hills beef burger right off the grill topped with housemade spicy mango ketchup, smoked onion mustard, green tomato relish, and bacon jam? Perhaps a smoking kielbasa? A plate of either will cost you $10 with appropriately summery sides like pit-baked beans, tomato salad, and fresh watermelon.
Cold beer on tap, wine by the glass, and live music by the Bushels rounds out the fun. Firehouse Casual Living has donated a Big Green Egg cooker for a raffle that benefits Feed the Need. Raffle tickets are currently available at Ted’s for $5 (or five for $20), and you don’t even have to be present to win.
