What the hell is Mel’s BBQ and why is it trending on Twitter?
So, this popped up on Reddit yesterday:
I am a Reddit n00b so I will post the answer here:
#MelsBBQ is not a restaurant in Los Angeles. It is, quite simply, a barbecue I throw every year during Memorial Day weekend. Many friends attend. Some of these friends are on Twitter. They all Tweet about the barbecue using the hashtag #MelsBBQ (mostly because I ask them to, and they’re great about doing so). Depending on the people you follow on Twitter, #MelsBBQ may show up as trending. And there you have it!
