Feeding a hungry group? Liberty Barbecue is running a Labor Day promotion similar to its popular Fourth of July Bundle: Two meats (pulled chicken, pulled pork or beef brisket), three sides (with options including coleslaw, potato salad and mac & cheese), 12 mini cornbread muffins, housemade pickles, 12 Martin’s potato rolls and sauces, all of which serves eight to 10 people. There’s also beer, specialty cocktails and wine available. Order online at least 48 hours ahead, owner Steve Fedorchak advises. You can also eat outside on the restaurant’s shaded patio. // 370 W.
