Rod has finished the audition video for Smokin' Yankees BBQ in their quest to be on BBQ Pitmasters on TLC. We really want to see them on the show. To help out, please go to the Discovery website and tell them, "I want to see Smokin' Yankees from Stockton on BBQ Pitmasters!" Let's help get them on national TV. The Smokin' Yankees have their new website up and also, check them out on Facebook.

Andy Pinasco, aka @brewery33, will be making good on his trash bet and will be spending one hour (from 8 AM - 9 AM) picking up garbage at Janet Leigh Plaza. Look for him downtown on Saturday 4/10 or 5/1. We'll be sure to let everyone know exactly which day he chooses. So, join him if you'd like, or just enjoy downtown Stockton and congratulate him when he's done.
