Every year at this time, all I can think about is BBQ. With the Hub City BBQ Cook-off right around the corner, of course there are some street closures that come along with my BBQ.

From the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce:

The following downtown streets will be closed for the 17th Annual Hub City BBQ Cook-off presented by Suddenlink:


  • Main Street from Avenues Q to N
  • Ave. N between Main Street and 10th Street
  • Ave. O between Main Street and 9th Street


These streets are scheduled to be closed from 6 a.m. Wed., Sept. 20, until 8 a.m. Fri., Sept. 22.  This will impact eastbound and westbound traffic on Main between Avenue Q and Avenue N, and northbound and southbound traffic on Avenues N and O between Main Street and 9th Street. Travelers who frequent this area are urged to take alternate routes on Wednesday and Thursday.

And if you're interested in sampling some of the best BBQ in the land, tickets are available at the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce for $25 for adults and $15 for children 6-10.
