Blues music and BBQ—thats what Hudson does. (Also, Hudson forgives vague, terrible Wedding Crashers allusions.) The 11th Annual Hudson River Park Blues BBQ Festival, a true indulgence along the West Village shores, brings forth the everyman laments in fine form again with Texans Smokin Joe Kubek and the Bnois King Band, belter and 2009 B.B. King Entertainer of the Year nominee Janiva Magness, gospel-laced guitarist Joe Louis Walker, and more. The South is just a subway ride away.
