Who else went to the Blue Smoke Bar-B-Q block party?

Hightailed it over to East 27th Street today to check out the barbeque offered. Unfortunately, the lines to buy tickets for the various food stands were just too long. I didn't have the patience to wait on a huge line and then wait on other lines to get to the food. If it hadn't been raining I bet there would have been even more people.

The aroma of the street food was tantalizing and I wound up going into Blue Smoke for ribs there. Bah! I still don't like their ribs. I had the St. Louis style ribs and it just tasted too much like liquid smoke.

Maybe I'll try again Sunday and the lines won't be as disorganized and there will be more cashiers. A great idea but they need more organization. I'm wondering why we just couldn't pay cash at each table the way one does at street fairs. I guess there's a reason.
