Just after the new year in 2012, CatHead's BBQ moved into its first brick-and-mortar home in the former Big Nate's BBQ space at 1665 Folsom. Until then they had been a catering and pop-up operation with an electric smoker (co-owner Richard Park joked at the time, "All this time, we've still had hair on arms. Now we're back to having some real fire."), but for the last year they've been turning out excellent Coca-Cola-braised brisket, pulled pork, and enormous buttermilk biscuits ("as big as a cat's head") to an eager audience in SoMa. It's time now, on Saturday, January 26, to celebrate their first year in business, and they're doing it with a Customer Appreciation Party from noon to 5 p.m. See the flyer below.
The event features free sliders all day, prize giveaways, and a biscuit-eating challenge at 3 p.m. Bring some Zantac.
