“Scarborough Specialties thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 Hub City BBQ in downtown Lubbock. The time that we get to mingle with the other cooking teams on Wednesday night and all day Thursday is invaluable as it solidifies some strong business relationships out of the 'working' environment. The crowd and band was fabulous on Thursday evening as the networking continued! A big 'thank you' to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce as well as to the Hub City BBQ Committee. Job well done!”
Jay Jacobus, Scarborough Specialties
From the volunteers to the weather, everything was perfect. The BBQ is a great community event for businesses and families alike. Suddenlink continues to be the presenting sponsor of this event because it promotes everything we stand for - entertainment, community and family values.”
