American Music Awards Red Carpet: Best Dressed

It was a star studded Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, for the 43rd annual American Music Awards. Every year, celebrities band together for a night filled with over-the-top performances, hilarious presentations, and award categories dedicated to all genres of music. The American Music Awards is known for its many memorable moments over the years (Anyone remember the 1985 AMA’s unforgettable “We Are the World” performance?), but if there is one thing that is being talked about more than all of the musical performances, it is the red carpet fashion.

What America’s Best BBQ Joint Can Teach You About Pricing


Aaron Franklin, proprietor of the Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas, has been lauded for his pit master skills, specifically in smoking beef brisket. Bon Appetit anointed his fare the best barbecue in America, and he was awarded Best Chef: Southwest by the James Beard Foundation. Barbecue lovers line up hours in advance of the restaurant’s 11 AM opening, and the limited supply of brisket, ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and sausage usually sells out by 2 PM.

Franklin’s prized brisket is priced at $ 20 a pound, in line with local rivals County Line ($ 20.58), Ruby’s ($ 21.95), and Rudy’s ($ 17.58). Given the high demand for his cuisine, it’s fair to wonder, “Why doesn’t Mr. Franklin raise prices?”

We’ll take a look at why that’s the case, when you may be able to score better deals, and how price trackers can be a crucial tool in helping you pay less without fighting the crowds.
