Grillin' and Chillin'

BBQ is a family affair, so leave the liquor at home.

Leave your potty mouth and gangsta rap at home if you plan to attend today's Bisbee Connection Cook-Out. The fifth annual barbecue for Cleveland's inner-city kids is all about clean living, says organizer Joseph Moore. "No negativity, no gangs," he says. "And don't bring no liquor, because we ain't gonna allow that." As the grills work overtime cooking burgers and hot dogs, urban poets, rappers, and gospel singers perform odes to family values. "We ain't nobody but regular Joes — the same ones who was messing up when we were kids," says Moore. "Now we're bringing those values back."
