Life Is Beautiful kicks off its three-day festival with another rendition of Grills & Guitars, filled with chefs and live music. The event takes place at Gold Spike on Thursday, Oct. 23, from 7 to 10 p.m. with its own take on a traditional backyard barbecue.
Festival artists Vintage Trouble, Sleeper Agent and The All-Togethers put on the music while a culinary dream team pushes out the dishes. Look for chefs such as Bruce and Eric Bromberg, Frankie Pellegrino Jr., Cat Cora and more to supply the food. Dishes that make the menu so far include rock shrimp mac and cheese, grilled Spanish octopus with squash caponatta and crab grits, grilled prime steak tacos, barbecue St. Louis ribs, Basque shrimp with chimichurri, pastrami-spiced ribeye, burgers and more.
