Brother Jimmy’s BBQ’s Murray Hill location proudly celebrates its 5 year anniversary this month. The popular southern BBQ restaurant and nightlife outpost has consistently served up quality cuisine, flowing cocktails and great memories as patrons continue to “Put Some South in Yo’ Mouth.” Now, in an effort to give back to the community that has allowed Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Murray Hill to thrive, the restaurant will host a Backyard BBQ Block Party on Tuesday, August 20th from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM at its Lexington Avenue and 31st Street location.

Brother Jimmy’s Backyard BBQ Block Party will feature free concession stands to anyone passing by, with enough food to feed over 1,000 people. Brother Jimmy’s BBQ fans will be able to enjoy cotton candy and popcorn machines, along with many signature dining favorites such as Frickles, 500 Pulled Chicken Sliders, 150lbs of Rib Tips, Cole Slaw, Corn on the Cob and refreshing home brewed iced tea and lemonade. A BBQ Block Party would not be complete without a whole hog smoking right alongside the sidewalk. Executive Chef Eva Pesantez will be serving up the whole hog into over 1,000 signature Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

“We are thrilled to reach this milestone in Murray Hill,” says CEO Josh Lebowitz. “Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Murray Hill has grown into a community of regular customers. The least we could do was put together this Backyard BBQ Block Party to show how much we appreciate their continued patronage until the next celebrated anniversary.”

All Brother Jimmy’s BBQ fans are encouraged to make their way over to Lexington at the corner of 31st Street on August 20th to partake in the festivities!

Things got dark and scary at Last Rites Gallery, as they are wont to do, at Saturday night’s opening reception for the Gallery’s Fifth Anniversary group show. Of course, dark and scary is how we like it at Last Rites, a gallery dedicated to exhibiting Horror Themed art and surrealist / pop art that falls to the right of the macabre.

Curated by Gallery Director (and freelance photographer) Derek Storm, this collection features paintings, sculptures, drawings and mixed media works by over forty artists, including a selection of Last Rites‘ roster of represented artists such as Chris Mars, Jason D’Aquino, Chet Zar, Beau Stanton and the legendary HR Giger.

Colin Christian has a beautiful sculpture in the show and his equally talented wife, Sas Christian has contributed a painting, below, that to me looks a lot like actress Naomi Watts.

Mark Kostabi was there! It is always fun to see Mark, he is so nice and such a charmer!

It is not very challenging to pick out Mark’s contribution to the show. His style is extremely distinctive.

I liked this one a lot.

These two artists created this paint during the exhibit. I guess that qualifies it as “Performance Art.”
