8/1  Lillie’s Q 1 year anniversary is today. Stop by at 9 p.m. for free samples of their whole smoked hog and get $1 samples of their Lillie’s Q-Rita cocktail. BBQ + summer = perfection. Chef Charlie McKenna is phenomenal + award winning (winner Memphis-In-May World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest).
