Boston Magazine's The Cue

          For several years in a row now, Boston Magazine has hosted a two night summer food festival including two fun events: Battle of the Burger and The Cue. I attended The Cue, which took place the first night in the seaport.

          The event hosted by Joe Gatto, included a 12-mixologist cocktail shakedown complemented by some of the best BBQ in town. I started with some Oysters from Neptune Oyster in the VIP lounge, and enjoyed this gorgeous view.

           Next I went on to sample tons of BBQ and cocktails! My favorite cocktails were from  Granary Tavern and The Palm.

Granary Tavern's beautiful presentation

The Palm's twist on a Moscow Mule made with vodka and pineapple
          Sweet Cheek's booth definitely won for best presentation, and the pork belly was amazing!

          I was excited to see one of my local favorite's The Lincoln, and I loved their burnt end taco on a fresh made corn tortilla. 

          The most creative booth (not pictured) was Koy, which had a fun beer pong style game where you won gift cards for every ball that made it into a cup. The fiance and I both won a couple, and  plan to try them for dinner soon!

          Not only was The Cue a great chance to try some of Boston's best BBQ and cocktails, but the proceeds went to support Share Our Strength. Definitely check it out next year!
