We're simple guys ... we've got simple needs. BBQ, beer, girls, and ... burning shit on camera. We spent a day up at Buchanan Lake near Tow, TX, trying to get one shot ... first there's a vid of the early part of our setup:
So we had this grand idea. It required someplace remote and near water. Buchanan Dam, TX was adjacent to a large lake we thought would be great for this photo project. We first went to Fuzzy's Corner. Douchecock racists at the bar mumbled something I couldn't hear, but Zoo did.
Moved on to dinner at Danny's Country Diner - a solid, family-run place with home cooking.
And then back to Fuzzy's to show the arsewipes that their stupidity was not intimidating. Then, on to the fun...
Turns out this place is mostly for vacationing seniors. Outsiders such as us are not very often seen and much less welcome.
We spent some time in downtown Austin and returned to the Jackalope Bar three times, partly because everything else downtown is douchy and partly because Kristie Bell ain't shit. Oh, inside jokes, we love 'em.
The brown trash in me cannot help from ordering Buffalo Chicken Tenders anytime they are on the menu.
This waitress was pretty trashy hot, sorta like a not totally fucked up Amy Winehouse ...
Yes, there is a 7 foot Jackalope in the middle of the bar.
This is Kristie Bell, and she really ain't shit.
The band was pretty good, but the harp player was pretty bad. He was also sorta a unfunny douche.
You know, for a barbecue tour, we're not actually eating that much barbecue ... today is day 5 and we've only had 4 barbecue meals ... partly because I had to have some Cajun and Creole food in NOLA, but also because our colons can only handle so much. Anyway, we stopped at Willy Ray's ... great selection of bbq. Great ribs, good pork sausage and brisket. I'd maybe avoid the venison sausage next time. Sides were a little weaker.
Am I just taco crazy? Maybe. But next time you're in Austin with a hangover, proceed directly to this joint. It can get a little crazy 'round brunch time, but it's worth the wait. Last time I had the breakfast tacos which just blew me away: you normally have to choose just two ingredients, but spend the extra 3 or so bucks and get them fully loaded: beans, cheese, eggs,taters, spinach, shrooms, tomato, bacon, chorizo AND ham. If that (along with a Bloody Maria or two) doesn't cure your hangover, just shoot yourself.
