Once Artown wraps up -- the lineup of big local events heats up even more. Starting with Hot August Nights followed by the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off at John Ascuaga's Nugget.
The 25th annual rib cook-off kicks off on Wednesday, August 28th.
And rib cookers will compete for first place and bragging rights.
Every year, the Nugget selects two local media personalities to be part of the judges' panel.
And this year -- it's up to you to decide which media personalities will win those coveted spots.
Our very own Mike Alger and Neda Iranpour are in the running.
