Rib lovers, rejoice! This Sunday, August 15th is the fifth annual Blues, BBQ & Fireworks, a food and music event on Pier 54, where some of the city's finest 'cuemasters will be showcasing their wares. Many of our favorites will be there, including Daisy May’s BBQ USA, Pearson’s Texas BBQ, Philly’s Smokehouse, Tennessee Mountain, and Virgil’s Real BBQ. We'll see you there -- we'll be the ones with barbecue sauce slathered all over our faces and a pile of well-gnawed bones at our feet.

Pier 54, Hudson River Park at West 13th Street, West Village, 2-9 pm.
