    Photos from our exclusive preview of Sweet Lew’s

    Delicious barbecue, smoker knowledge, and a whole lot of fun


    Thanks to all who joined us at Sweet Lew’s for our sold-out preview of the restaurant! We had a blast making new friends and trying out the new barbecue spot, which opened this week. You may have noticed local food photographer Peter Taylor snapping photos during the event. (Thanks, PTPix!) Here they are:
