  • Written by Shannon Michael

David Hayward, the owner of Carolina Smoke BBQ Restaurant in Bothell’s Country Village, is a pay it forward kind of guy. That’s why all the profits of his Rib Day on Saturday, June 14 will be donated to Evergreen Hospital’s Cardiac Unit.
It’s Hayward’s way of acknowledging the nurses and doctors who saved his life when he had a heart attack on August 20, 2013. He’s grateful that team gave him the opportunity to celebrate another Father’s Day with his children.
His special menu will have baby back ribs, spareribs, beef ribs, and beef short ribs, with Chester Dennis Jones playing blues music from 1 to 5 p.m. He’s placed a large food order for the 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. event. A collection jar already is at the front counter to benefit the hospital.
