Down on Virginia at Bates, Iron Barley owners Jenn and Tom Coghill hosted their annual Memorial Day Rib Fest and fundraiser. A block of Virginia was closed for the food booths, beverage stands, and music stage.
This year's event raised funds for the USO and Fisher House, a veteran's service home offering family members of wounded veterans a place to stay while their loved ones undergo medical care.
Here's Fred Friction, booking agent for Iron Barley, celebrating with one of the winning barbeque contestants.
And here are Jenn and Tom awarding one of the Rib Fest trophies.
With the Rib Fest a wrap, Iron Barley devotees will have to wait a couple of weeks while the staff gets a much deserved break and the restaurant goes through some inside updates.
When the restaurant reopens, be sure to visit for some of the best food in all of St. Louis.
