Two local restaurants will be featured on national television next week, and one is putting on a watch party to celebrate.
Public at the Brickyard, the gastropub at 129 N. Rock Island in Old Town, and Jet BBQ at 1100 E. Third St., both will be featured Wednesday in back-to-back episodes of a Travel Channel show called “BBQ Crawl,” which features host Danielle Dimovski, a Canadian barbecue champion, traveling the country, competing, and sampling ‘cue.
The episode featuring Public is on first at 9 p.m. and is called “Bison, Beer and BBQ.” During the episode, Dimovski stops in to try Public’s buffalo sliders. Then, at 9:30 p.m., an episode called “Firehall Q, Cattle Auctions and Strawberry Banana Cake” features Jet BBQ and owner “Jet Man” John Thien giving Dimovski a tour in his signature fire truck.
The watch party starts at 8 p.m. at Public, which will offer $2 drafts and food specials. For more information, call Public at 316-263-4044.
Watch this trailer for a preview to the episode featuring Public and keep watching to see the Jet BBQ episode preview.
