Bluestem Restaurant's by-reservation-only barbecue may be the poshest version of a neighborhood street party ever. Bluestem owners Megan and Colby Garrelts are erecting a tent in the parking lot behind their restaurant at 900 Westport Road and closing off the adjacent stretch of Roanoke. The party, which runs from 4 to 8 p.m., features fried chicken and grits, boiled shellfish, fruit cobbler, brisket, and macaroni and cheese. "We've been so stuffy doing so many upscale things, this was time to do something we like to do," Colby Garrelts says. For $50, patrons get a raucous good time eating, sipping Four Roses bourbon and Boulevard "Hoppy Wheat" brew, and dancing to the music of Bad Disposition. For advance tickets — the only way into the festivities — call Bluestem at 816-561-1101.
