Barbecue loss means lodging loss |

Barbecue loss means lodging loss

When the Frisco Town Council voted to change the date of the Barbecue Challenge, they really voted to move that great event to another location.

That will hurt everyone in Frisco, not just the Main Street gang.

I manage a condominium/resort complex in Frisco, and many of the contestants in the barbecue have already reserved rooms for next year.

All of those people will now have to change reservations or cancel altogether.

What about the revenue we lose?

I guess as far as the Town Council is concerned, some businesses are more equal than others. As for me, I won’t be eating in Frisco during those two days in August, I’ll be at the barbecue spending my money at the new location.
