Barbecue restaurant will cut sabbatical short if Seahawks make Superbowl


Yet another reason to root for the Seahawks: Walla Walla barbecue hot spot A Wing & A Prayer Barbecue + Catering has vowed to cut its annual sabbatical short to make its food available if the home teams makes the Superbowl.

The Walla Walla restaurant, 201 E. Main St., closed at the end of December for its annual holiday. Owners Timm and Teri Johnson plan to take the month to “recharge their batteries,” in the Caribbean, where they are making an annual tradition of learning the roots of American barbecue.

The initial plan was to reopen Feb. 1, Timm Johnson said via email. However, if the Seattle Seahawks make the Superbowl, the pair will open a few days early so that local residents can get barbecue for the game.

Johnson said limited catering will also be available during the month. According to a Facebook post from A Wing & A Prayer, the restaurant ended the year on a bright note, having experienced “dynamic growth in both our catering and the restaurant.” For more information call 525-1566.
