On Thursday, take a barbecue break at Joe Chillura Courthouse Square.

This election cycle has resulted in a ton of presidential campaigning and advertising for Tampa not just because Florida is a swing state, but also because it's along the I-4 corridor (where more than 40 percent of the state's registered voters live).

Kingsford Charcoal wants to alleviate the political noise with its free Bipartisan BBQ from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday.

With food catered by Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q, one of the best U.S. pitmasters, the event is planned for downtown Tampa's Joe Chillura Courthouse Square. But only the first 300 locals who demonstrate a nonpartisan view on social media with the hashtag #BipartisanBBQ will receive a plate of barbecue.
