Riverscape is the place to be this Friday night. Why? Because a charity event for the Diabetes Dayton is gonna rock your world, in a “bluesy” sorta way.
The extravaganza is called Big Brews and Blues, and it is one of our favorite annual festivals. The fest has over 70 beers to sample and of course they have some exceptional blues bands as well. There is even a charitable auction at the end of the night.
But this is Food Adventures, and we tend to focus on the food vendors as much as the beer selection. So, let us give you our soulful take on this special night for a special cause.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— The event takes place Friday night May 15th from 5pm – 9pm at Riverscape

— Over 70 beers will be available for samples and 3 different blues performances are slated for the stage.
— Food Vendors will be selling various eats during the event.
— THE PULLED PORK SANDWICH from HICKORY RIVER SMOKEHOUSE: Big, thick chunks of pork in a soft bun and you get to squirt some of their homemade BBQ sauce all over it. Ladies and Gentleman – welcome to chin dripping good times at the Blues festival !
— CRAB CAKES from BROCK MASTERSON’S CATERING: Huge, hulking crab cakes with big flavor. Handmade patties, tossed on the grill for the crisp edge, holding all the rich crabmeat inside. This is absolutely delicious.
— GRILLED SALMON from BROCK MASTERSON’S CATERING: Fresh, natural and flavorful are the words that come to mind on this dish. Carefully grilled, the salmon is served slightly rare, to perfection. Go ahead, indulge yourself.
— EMPANADAS from EL MESON: Pockets of meat packed full of deliciousness. Great for on the go festival drinking. you can double fist a beer with one of these all night, and still not mess up your blues dance moves.
— AREPAS from EL MESON: Want some melt in your mouth goodness? Try their Arepas, which are Colombian sweet corn cakes with cheese inside.
