Cochon Heritage BBQ – Kickoff – Rain or Shine

I was talking to Jennifer Chandler, who has a big hand in tonight’s Cochon events, the kick-off soiree and the midnight brunch. She’s pumped up about how cool it is going to be tonight. The good news is that the Peabody is ready to handle the kick-off on the rooftop if the weather is good and in the skyway if Isaac sends some rain our way tonight.

She said that all the chefs, mixologists, and the bologna contestents are getting really into the menu for tonight, so it is bound to be awesome. Here are some of the people that are getting in on the action:
