The Bank Hotel hosts a day-long event dedicated to finger-licking ribs.
From noon till late, you'll be able to indulge in mountains of ribs at the Bank Hotel in Newtown. There'll be lamb, beef, chicken, pork and even their signature vegan ribs on the menu, served with a variety of hot sauces. The smokey meat treats are expertly handled by Brazilian BBQ master, chef Tiago Teixeira.
If you're feeling particularly confident about your love of ribs, enter the eating competitions. Scarf down as much as you can to be crowned 'Most Ribs Eaten' lord but be quick about it if you wanna nab the title of 'Fastest to Eat a Plate'. Have some milk at the ready for the Hot Ribs contest or just wash it all down with some rib-inspired beer. Brewers from Young Henrys, Batch Brewing Co, Willie the Boatman, Australian Brewing, Grifters Brewing Co and Waywards Brewing Co will all be tapping out special one-off beers, from which the crowd will vote for the best beer of Ribfest.
There'll also be some live music by Low Down Riders, a pop-up vinyl store, and more funny banter from MC Tora Hymen.
