Tweets from https://twitter.com/LauraGilchrist4/lists/edcamp-leadership-kc "Joe's KC BBQ has been named Kansas City's 'Best Barbecue' by Zagat (every year since 2004), and by readers of KC Magazine and 435 Magazine." "In Spring 2013, USA Today named Joe's KCBBQ ribs as the "Tastiest Ribs in America." "In Summer 2013, Zagat named the Z-Man as Best Sandwich in Kansas in its "50 States, 50 Sandwiches" list." "Named by the Daily Meal for having the best ribs in America (May 2014)"
Summer is the perfect time to listen, ask, network, and dream for the future--connecting with educators and people/resources in our city!
Hope to see you there!
