Our good friend Billy Durney of Hometown Bar-B-Que in Red Hook, Brooklyn challenged me to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge today. Of course I accepted his challenge, and got doused with three buckets of ice cold water in front of BrisketTown.
This weekend we'll be donating 2% of sales from BrisketTown to ALSA. Pay us a visit, and help us contribute to a great cause! Of course, you can (and should) donate on your own. Just visit http://alsa.org to pledge.
Who We Challenged
We're challenging Aaron Franklin of Franklin BBQ, Daniel Vaughn of Texas Monthly Magazine, Pete Wells of The New York Times, and Andrew Tarlow of Marlow & Sons & Diner. They all have 24 hours to accept the challenge. When they do, we'll post their video responses below. Game on!
