Back Beach Barbecue Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary

On Saturday, May 18, Back Beach Barbecue will host their second annual “Hog Bash” to celebrate their two-year anniversary. From 1-4 p.m. guests are invited to enjoy two whole hog roasts, live music, giveaways, and refreshments provided by local breweries. A portion of the proceeds from the afternoon will benefit South Walton Academy.

Back Beach Barbecue opened its doors in June 2017 and is owned and operated by Danny and Monica Cosenzi, the duo behind the famed Restaurant Paradis located in Rosemary Beach, Fla. Recently named as the “Best Barbecue on the Beach” by Good Grit Magazine, Back Beach Barbecue has served locals and visitors alike from their simple yet refined menu of slow-cooked meats, homemade sides and sauces, as well as gluten free options.

Back Beach Barbecue has partnered with its sister restaurant, Restaurant Paradis, along with Buddy’s Seafood, Grayton Beer Company, and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company for the event. Each sponsor will be providing food, refreshments, or various raffle prizes for the celebratory event. Every attendee will be entered into the raffle upon arrival and winners will be announced throughout the day.

To commemorate the restaurant’s anniversary, Back Beach Barbecue will be donating a portion of the proceeds to South Walton Academy, a private, non-profit inclusion school and pediatric therapy clinic in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. The school serves all children, from age 3 through 9th grade, while working to bridge the gap between communication and children with autism. The new therapy clinic provides speech and occupational therapy to all children up until they are 18 years old.

For $15, guests will receive a plate filled with pulled pork, barbeque baked beans, and coleslaw. Back Beach Barbecue will be roasting two whole pigs, beginning at 1 p.m., and will have live music by local musician, Chip Lyons, throughout the afternoon for guests to enjoy.

This event is open to the public to attend. To learn more about Back Beach Barbecue and to stay up to date on events, new menu arrivals, and more, like their Facebook pageor visit
