Quick Hits 6/19/15: Andover BBQ Competition, Molino’s/SpringRo Opening, and More

Father’s Day Weekend, let’s get to it shall we?


Andover is having another People’s Choice Barbecue Competition during the Andover Concert in the Park event. They are trying to find out who has the best pulled pork. Last year over 1,200 participated in the barbecue competition.

They have a new ticketing and voting process and best of all, no entry fee!

I’ll be heading out there to see what this event is about along with some friends.

It’s Saturday, June 20 from 5 pm – 7 pm with expected highs in the 90’s tomorrow. I can’t wait to bake in the sun.
