The March COC&I meeting was today up at the Bentwood Texas Event center in Georgetown. We get together every couple of months to distribute information about political issues that are important to our motorcycle community. Today we heard from several people, and the talks were very interesting. Lots of opportunities coming up to talk to our legislators. here is the web site; http://txcocinews.org/region-1—central-texas.html
Debbie and I drove out to The Post Tavern in Cedar Park today for the Chupacabras MC anniversary party. Though some rain was expected, the sprinkles held off until late afternoon. We enjoyed out free “water”, and greatly enjoyed our conversations. It is so nice to get together with friends. The had a wonderful cake, chocolate on chocolate with shredded chocolate. How can you go wrong with that. We hung around for a couple of hours, then headed home. Another successful party.
Well, we just got back from a very cold UCOA (United Clubs Of Austin) meeting down in Buda at Willie’s Joint. Considering the wind and temperature, the meeting was very well attended, and a lot of people even came out on their bikes, which is quite a testimony to their commitment. We appreciate Willie’s Joint for hosting us, and they did provide a couple of very nice fire pits to help warm our frozen hands. Fortunately our Secretary Beth remembered to bring a blanket, so at least she was warm(er). I was personally very pleased that they set up one of those propane powered heat lamps between Beth and I, which made it convenient for Syntax to stand between us warming up his Mohawk haircut. He seems a little concerned that the heat might melt his hair, but I assured him that it was fine. Anyway, we had a good, if cold meeting, and hopefully by now everyone is home in the warmth.
We dropped in at the Dirty Dog bar in downtown Austin on 6th Street for the Texas Birthday Bash IV, hosted by Victory or Death MC. It was very well attended, considering how cold the weather was today. They had a CROCKPOT Cookoff, which tuned out really well. As you might imagine, a crock pot holds quite a lot of tasty stuffsand very little of it is needed for the judging, so the rest was given away to the attendees. That would be us. And tasty it was too, with a good variety of flavors. You will have to look t the photos to get the idea. One of the ladies also backed some wonderful deserts, three pies, lemon squares and a cake. So desert was well taken care of. Here are a few pictures;
PS: We arrived a bit early, so we headed down a few doors to Casino EL Camino for what was described to us as “The Best Burger in Austin”. It was wonderful, Debbie and i shared one and it was plenty, with great flavor!
