    Hey Everyone, I know I am a horrible person and I don't post as much as I once did. but It has been a CRAZY BUSY Year. I just thought I would pop in and say hi and keep you abreast of all the Adventures of Ole Uncle Tykie...if any of you care...lol

    Well, most of you prolly know I opened my first restaurant last August in Ashland, IL. Then I got married on new years Eve, then bought my first house Feb 1st and finally last week I bought my Second Restaurant. It will be called Incle Tykie's Prairie Fire Grill Located in Athens, IL talk about being spread thin. Life is super busy but fun nonetheless. I miss talking to you guys and sharing tips and tricks. I will have pics up of the new place once I get it remodeled.


    I have become a member of the local Community club for businesses here in Ashland and they are wanting me to Organize a BBQ Cook-Off for the last weekend in June for the summer Festival here, but I have no clue where to begin...it would be cool if It could be a certified KCBS event....any suggestions?

    yer old Friend,

    You are giving a new meaning to spread thin.[​IMG] Those are a lot of live changing events for one year. Glad it is working out for you.[​IMG]

    Congrats on the great success Tykie, a second restaurant is definitely something to be proud of.
    I know where I'll be stopping the next time I pass through Illinois.

    Wow, you have been busy, UT! Sounds like success is being pretty sweet for you...just don't let yourself get overwhelmed, brother. Glad to hear things are going well!

    I can't help you much with the organizing of a cook-off, as I don't really know where to begin myself, especially a KCBS event. I'm just getting ready to get my feet wet this coming July for a 2-day weekend family reunion that I'm organizing with my siblings back on our childhood stomping grounds. Should be a hoot for sure!

    Someone should be along who knows where/how to get started, and the folks you'll need to contact in the community. If nothing else comes up, probably go to the city/town hall, chamber of commerce, etc. They should be able to point you to the right people for permits etc, if needed, for a location.

    I wish you all the best!

    Take care and have fun!

    Wow! thats a year for the record books! Congrats.
    I would start by contacting KCBS and get thier recommendations...they might even have one of thier more experienced organizers that could "mentor" you through the process...sounds like fun.
    Next time I am up your way, I hope I get a chance to eat at one of your places!
