You can tell it's Texas...
…when you taste that BBQ…
And other than Carolina BBQ, it's the best!
We went to Red Hot & Blue for lunch after a morning full of meetings. The pulled pork was the best. Wayne said that it was the best pork he's had next to the pull pork that was served at my wedding. He told everyone at the table how wonderful the BBQ at the wedding reception was and so I had to explain everything. So funny. I will be back to Red Hot & Blue.
Dinner was at Aw Shucks. I love this place. It's house off of Mockingbird Lane on lower Greenville Ave. You go in and order your food and they bring it out to you. You sit at picnic benches in the front of the house - sort of like an enclosed porch. You used to get your beer out of a tin bucket but apparently business has been booming because they put in taps inside the house and the bottled beer is refrigerated.
You order most of the food by the pound which comes out on silver serving platters. You make your own sauce using ketchup and horseradish. The napkins come on rolls (aka paper towels). We got 8 fried oysters, 3 fried catfish filets, a pound each of hot spicy shrimp (complete with heads and shell), crawfish (munchkin lobsters) and raw oysters. This is some of the best eatin' a person can partake in.
Oh, and I met my good friend Chris Hughes. He is not as big as I thought he would be - but then he is wearing a motorcycle jacket in the picture I saw. Nice Guy! Seriously! On the way there, I told Steve and Wayne we are meeting a guy for dinner. No, never met him before. No, I never talked to him. Only through the internet... I got funny looks but they went with it. Turned out that everyone got along great. I wish Joseph had come down with me. He would have liked Chris a lot. And Chris didn't mind when the group started talking politics and bashing various politicians. LOL! Gotta love a guy who just goes with the flow like that!
Ok, time to get some rest.
I have 6 miles in the morning - hills.
I am strangely not feeling like it.
2 miles easy in the fitness center on the t-mill.
