Gus's Barbecue wants football fans on both sides eat well before and/or during the game. You can always find tailgate and party packs at the South Pasadena restaurant, but this weekend there's the special Pac 12, a barbecue feast fit for a truly hungry ballin' crew.
You'll get three pounds of Memphis-style babyback ribs or St. Louis-style spare ribs, three whole bbq chickens, Carolina-style pulled pork or beer-braised brisket, smoked sausage, corn bread, and four quarts of side dishes (your choice of bbq baked beans, cole slaw, red skin potato salad, garlic mashed potatoes, sugar snap peas and carrots, braised greens, dirty rice, cream corn and mac and cheese). Get it "USC-Style" and receive complimentary 12 pack of PBR; UCLA gets Coors Light. The whole shebang costs $199.95 and feeds 12. Orders can be placed through Friday for Saturday game-day pickup (808 Fair Oaks Ave.; 626-799-3251).
