Join Us for the Saturday Nite ReGrind and a BBQ Fundraiser at Wheelhouse Sports Pub
Another Saturday is upon us and that means you can find "Big Noodle" Louie Linguini live at the Wheelhouse Sports Pub giving you the booty-shakin' music you crave on the Saturday Nite ReGrind.
Louie will be live from the bar's patio for the entire show, from 7 p.m. Saturday until midnight. so come out and say hello, take in some tunes and grab a few beverages from the lovely staff at the Wheelhouse Sports Pub.
You can also stop by the Wheelhouse earlier Saturday for an all-day barbeque fundraiser that kicks off at 11 a.m. and featured food prepared by the award-winning pitmaster Justin Erickson of the Pork on a Fork restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona.
All proceeds from the barbeque sale will benefit the newly established the Willa Freelend Women in Business Memorial Scholarship, which aims to provide funds to young women looking to further their education in any kind of business background.
Melissa Freelend, Willa's granddaughter and one of the organizers of the scholarship, called her grandmother one of the first businesswomen in Central City, Nebraska.
She said her grandmother founded a greenhouse and gas station there as well as insurance and real estate businesses. Willa Freelend died on May 9th of this year, and now her family is seeking to establish a memorial scholarship in her honor.
"Our goal is to help this continue and make sure that the next strong, independent young woman can be able to do her thing through this scholarship fund," Melissa Freelend said Thursday.
Saturday's barbeque fundraiser at the Wheelhouse, which is owned by Melissa's cousin Jon Freelend, is the first event tied to the memorial scholarship and she thanked Tuscaloosa for its willingness to help grow this good cause.
"Its really important to us as a family and we’re really thankful that people are interested, even if it’s just to eat some really great barbeque," Melissa said.
Plates of barbeque will cost $10, smoked wing plates will cost the same and mixed plates are $15. Any order can be placed to-go for an addition $5 fee.
The Wheelhouse's bar will also feature $5 pitchers of Shocktop or Landshark and $10 liquor pitchers.
What else do you need to know? Get to the Wheelhouse early to get an pass at the pork or join us later in the evening for the Saturday Nite ReGrind, which kicks off at 7 p.m. It's going to be the best part in Tuscaloosa Saturday, and all funds raised from the food go to a great cause.
See you there!
