This evening, Virgil’s will be holding Ribstock in conjunction with the Heroes of Woodstock concert taking place at the Nokia Theater. The barbecue restaurant is planning to give away about 200 racks to the general public, as well as the chance to see some of the show’s performers suck meat off bones. Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten is expected to show up, along with members of Jefferson Starship. While the idea of hippies devouring large portions of non-organic meat seems a bit contradictory, at least this solves the problem of any pre-show munchies.
