“Famous Dave’s of Hayward was Rockin’-n-Rollin’ last night with our Famous Staff Costume Contest! Serving up our ribs were a Beautiful Butterfly, a Devil’s Bride, Aaron-ita Rodgers, Wayne Campbell of Wayne’s World, a Baker, and their ‘evil’ manager! If you missed us last night, make sure you stop on by today for some of our mouth-watering BBQ!”
