FREE Ribs!

Thanks to everyone who's entered to win FREE Ribs! At the 10th Anniversary of The Downtown Kitchener Ribfest & Craft Beer Show. We've read some fantastic and funny stories so far, and have already given away two sets of vouchers for free rib dinners. Here's one of our favourites, submitted by winner Ashley of Kitchener:


I moved from KW to Toronto in the fall of 2010. I knew no one in the city and was hoping that by summer, I'd have some new buddies and living in this tiny town wouldn't suck so bad. I decided to give it a year, and then I'd look for work in Toronto again. Being walking distance from everything in the Kitchener downtown core, I stumbled upon KW Ribfest the weekend one of my best friends came to visit. That day was the day I decided that Kitchener (and Waterloo) were a lot cooler and more fun than I had given the town credit for. I also set my best friend up with a guy I worked with, and she just moved here from TO as well, and she and that guy have bought a house in town. It sounds cheesy, but that day was the start of a summer that changed a lot of lives. It was also the first time I had ever eaten ribs, as I was a vegetarian for 20 years prior. Turns out, all good things start with copious amounts of pig meat!


Thanks Ashely for sharing your awesome #KWRibfest story with us!
