How to Enjoy Kansas City BBQ & Beer in Sac on Saturday


One of the best things about traveling is trying regional cuisine. But getting on a plane and spending a weekend in a new city costs lots of money.

A couple years ago, I went to Kansas City for a wedding and was blown away by their BBQ scene, which is probably best known for their sweet and tangy tomato-based sauce on burnt ends.

This Saturday, your taste buds can be transported to Kansas City at Smoke on The River at Miller, a state championship and Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) sanctioned event. The event will feature a People’s Choice BBQ tasting, People’s Choice for Best Beer and Best Cider, live entertainment and unlimited beer tastings provide by local breweries.

You'll also be eating for a good cause. The event is a fundraiser for Sacramento Artists Council and will raise money for art programs that assist at-risk children, children of homeless families and fund adopt a school art programs for Sacramento Regional Schools.

Don't let the weather discourage you - it'll be 70 degrees on Saturday and isn't likely to rain on Saturday afternoon.

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased at
