Starting Tuesday, Sept. 13 through Monday, Oct. 17, diners will squeal with joy while devouring barbecue, handcrafted cocktails and featured drinks.
“This celebration is a personal favorite of mine. There’s something about fall weather and tailgate season that makes you crave barbecue and savory sides,” said John C. Metz, executive chef, CEO and co-founder of Marlow’s Tavern. “Our Ribs & Whiskey menu packs on the flavor, leaving you reaching for that napkin.”
Marlow’s is also offering fans a chance to win a patio party for 10 guests at the Marlow’s location of their choice.
