I was lucky enough to get to attend this past Saturday’s Bands Brew and BBQ and can say it was one of the most fun and exciting experiences you can have here in central Florida. I can’t say enough for the amazing food (the pulled pork is to die for) and the great creativity of the head executive chef Colon who created such amazing interesting mouthwatering dishes for this year’s event. If you’re as much of a fan of delicious food and music as I am than this is a can’t miss for you and your family. There’s also a wonderful amount of things to do in and out of the event from looking at classic cars specially brought out for the event to underwater viewing of some of the most beautiful creatures on earth. It’s so much fun for the whole family and something everyone should check out! The music is spectacular and the food is to die for!
