Hill Country Attempting to Win Summer With a Pop-Up “Backyard Barbecue”

The Texas food and music joint will offer Shiner beer, live music, and barbecue this summer on the lawn of the National Building Museum.

Enjoy your Hill Country grub on the Building Museum’s lawn starting this Friday.

It’s now officially May, which means outdoor drinking is back. Penn Quarter Texas barbecue joint Hill Country is inaugurating the season by launching its Backyard Barbecue, a summer-long outdoor pop-up on the west lawn of the National Building Museum. Wednesday through Sunday, the venue will serve Shiner beers, sandwiches, sausages, and other BBQ staples, accompanied by live music from acts such as Austin’s Fatback Circus and Philadelphia’s Kalob Griffin Band. The first event is scheduled for this Friday, May 3; for more details on the lineup, visit Hill Country’s website.
