    why not have a barbecue cook off @ the Convention Center?

    Plenty of open dates available.

    Nice river front lawn for cooking if the weather permits. Move it indoors if the weather threatens.

    Get a few celebrities out there to create pizzazz. Roman Gabriel, Trot Nixon, Meadowlark Lemon, MJ are just a few who come to mind.

    Maybe a couple of picking and grinning bands? Or some good blues.

    Since they have no events of this nature booked, the CC will not have to worry about that 90 day blackout rule which rarely gets mentioned.

    Hold it in October. Politicians seeking re-election could shake hands and kiss babies. Dukie and his cohorts could rent booth space and try to drum up support for the river front albatross.

    This could be large if someone has vision and if the CC General Manager takes an interest and takes charge.

    Now if you can serve beer, you could bill it “Blues, Brews & Barbeque” on the River.
