Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Festival Giveaway

One of my favorite holidays is Memorial Day. Maybe because my birthday is always around that time. Or maybe because there's always a ton of parties. Or because it's the start of summer.

What better way to kick off summer then to head to the Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Festival. A Cleveland tradition for 23 years, it's a delicious way to enjoy the long weekend.
