Warmer weather hit the South just in time for the grand opening of The Pink Pig Bar-N-Q on King Street in Charleston, SC (more on that later)
WBRC, Fox 6 Birmingham, decided to hold a Jim 'n Nick's feast during their weather reports this past week
And the most exciting of all--Nick Pihakis, our beloved founder, was announced as a semifinalist for the James Beard Awards, "Outstanding Restaurateur" award!!!!
This award goes to individuals who are not only providers of great food, but who are the exemplars of community leaders, philanthropists and businesspersons.
Nick Pihakis started Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q 26 years ago with his dad and the restaurant group has grown to provide much of the South with traditional barbecue, Southern recipes, great hospitality and community service. Congratulations Nick, on this amazing honor. We are keeping our fingers crossed for you to receive the award when the winners are announced in New York City on May 9th!
