Late Night: LIBERACE BBQ!!

This weekend brings brings two great America traditions together:  Barbecue and Liberace. Steven Soderbergh’s (possibly) final film, Behind the Candelabra airs on Sunday night, the eve of Monday’s eruption of charring ecstasy. My grandmother loved Liberace and watched him weekly;  I thought he was fascinatingly creepy, a vibe only heightened by his appearance on Batman.

Years later I had the pleasure of visiting the Liberace Museum in Las Vegas (twice!), now sadly closed, a victim of the failing economy. It was jawdroppingly, eyepoppingly over the top.

What will you be doing for Memorial Day? Do you have a fave bbq recipe? And what about that Liberace?
