We headed over to Texas Mist this afternoon, to the benefit for Bandido Diablo. BBQ Chips and Soda for $7, what a deal. Lots of meat and it tasted great. I am also a fan of the Chili Cheese Corn Chips, an excellent accompaniment to BBQ. Also had Raffle, Silent Auction, Music, oh and lots of friends too. We also had great weather today, I didn’t evened a coat. Are we sure Winter is here? Oh, that’s right, this is Texas. Winter doesn’t start for another two weeks and then ends after January 1st. The adventure we live!
We had a great time at Texas Mist today, at the benefit for Bandido Santos. It is unfortunate that he couldn’t be there to see it, and it is also unfortunate that he still has a lot of recovering to do before he will be able to get out of the house. We are paying for Santos, and we wish him fast healing and comfort from pain.
As for the benefit itself, it was great. We had wonderful BBQ, brisket, sausage and chicken with the fixing’. We also had 50/50, raffle, and a silent auction. Oh, and there were also those great shirts “If you ain’t sliding’ you ain’t riding'” for sale as well. Got to visit many of my friends too!
Here is some video of EBM (Execution By Music).
Debbie and I had a leisurely morning and then headed out to the Wounded Vets benefit at Tonkawa Cycles in Rockdale being put on by the Valhalla Nomadic Lone Riders Motorcycle Association. We were invited by their president to come out for some of the best BBQ in Texas. Well, he wasn’t lying, it was really good, and quite inexpensive as well as $5 a plate with beans and slaw. Nothing to complain about except the portions were so big I am now miserably full. We also participated in the raffle, and won a nice Texas A&M t-shirt. No comments all you Longhorns. The event was held at Tonkawa Cycles, right downtown in Rockdale. Nice place, kind of a cross between a motorcycle shop, a coffee house and an antique store. Something for everyone.
