TriTip ManCome on over to SSJ and pick up dinner to go or stay for the Outdoor Movie Night. Please see the Movie Night for more information regarding this activity.

The Tri Tip Man food truck is a family-owned business, run by owner and Trail Boss, Jeff Killough. The truck has an 18-foot kitchen, featuring a Cookshack smoker, where they serve up a variety of Smokin’ Tri-Tip sandwiches and other cowboy grub. They marinate their meats in their own “Kickin’ Cowboy Rub”, a coffee-based blend of spices, also available for sale at their truck. And instead of grilling over red oak, they smoke their beef over pecan wood, resulting in an amazing flavor.

On Saturday, October 3rd from 5-7pm, the Tri Tip Man will be at SSJ offering their delicious menu consisting of many types of sandwiches including tri tip, chicken, sausage and pulled pork. Their menu also includes tator tots, salad, fries, and other specialties. Menu is subject to change.  Check out their menu in the following link: http://tritipman.com/tri-tip-man-menu/

Reynold will also join and share some fun facts about the history of wine and religion.

Purchase a wine tasting kit to participate at the Festival Store. Each kit costs $95 and includes two bottles of wine, Festival drink coasters, food pairing & tasting cards and access to the Zoom event.  Each kit contains enough fun for 1 to 4 people to physically share together while participating in the Zoom event with others from a distance.

The wines selected for this event are a personal favorite of the Festival Board – Purple Paws Chardonnay and Purple Paws Red Blend. The Purple Paws wines were created in honor of Marlowe’s rescue dog, and a portion of the sales is donated for the care of homeless pets.

We were accepting sign-ups until September 21st. We are not shipping the wine kits. They will be available for pick up at SSJ from September 28th through October 1st.  Registering for this event is now closed.  Hope you will enjoy the many other events our Fall Festival has to offer this year...some virtual and some live but socially distanced!
