This past summer, Handsom Devil BBQ did a weekend pop-up event on Academy St in Poughkeepsie that was a huge success on July 21 and 22. Then in August, I noticed what looked like permanent Handsom Devil branding on the Academy Street spot where the pop-up had occurred. Well after a chat with owner Ed Randolph, I was told that an announcement would be forthcoming, and that announcement came on Monday.
