Barbecue Bros favorite Queen City Q has been teasing their new location on Twitter for the past few days, and this morning we received a press release announcing a partnership between them and the new BB&T Ballpark for Queen City Q to become the official barbecue of the Charlotte Knights.
There is a lot of buzz with the new ballpark moving uptown from Fort Mill, and this only adds to the reasons to make it to more games than I have in the past – which shouldn’t be hard, considering I have been to 3 games in 9 years.
Full press release below:
