The Annual Rib Burn Off took place Feb. 2 with well over 1,000 people making their way to the big heated tent set up behind Dino’s Lounge. The event raised money for Ferndale Youth Assistance and Michigan AIDS Coalition. Eight teams of local business people competed for the hearts and taste buds of the crowd, serving up their own style of meaty BBQ ribs. Attendees paid $10 to sample ribs from each team, and voted for their favorite.
Team #5, Bob Bones, got the most votes and secured the People’s Choice trophy. Team #2, The Dirty Rub, won for Team Spirit. And a panel of local celebrity judges voted Team #7, Blumz and M-1 Studios, as the Best of Show.
Dean Bach, owner of Dino’s Lounge, said the event brought in over $14,000 to help the local charities.
