Okay, party time... .
I plan to run by the Salt Lick this week-end and talk with the manager there and see if we can get group rates and whatever else they can give us in the way of special attention. I think that the least we can do for our own sanity as beleaguered CMKX shareholders.
YO...UC, IBM.....y'all can come by also we won't talk too much politics about CMKX if you are there..besides, it'sll give you guys some excellent "face time" with those of us from the lone star stat that support y'all !
Guys...I need a number on the attendees, so I'll monitor the boards for those interested and post my email address to confirm those who will be attending...
BTW, Since Steve from Sterling's board lives in San Antonio, I extended the invite to him and his family and his board Members from Texas...lol
That would be so cool to have a sizable get together, even if it's just with us Texans...lol
Hey, FW.... come up with a few weekends... might work for me (San Antonio area)... See if the place will cut us a deal on beer too; you know, drown our sorrows, and all that.... Would be cool to eat some red meat, drink some beer, and talk about what we all would have done with our millions (of $, not shares.... unfortunately, they aren't equivalent). Would be cool to have a Texas shareholder's, uh, "party".....
The Scene A heapin' helping of Texana. The wooden tables and benches outside are lined with locals treating out-of-town LURKERs to a real taste of Texas. ReMember that this popular joint is B.Y.O.B.--so stock up on your way out there to take in some booze with the scenery, especially if there is a wait. The native stone and cedar building is rustic and welcoming.The service is fast, but you'll never feel rushed.
The Food For good sauce and great meat, this is the place to eat. The dark-banded brisket is moist and tender, while the crisp sausage casings reveal a perfect, smoky interior. The pork ribs are lean and the turkey breast stands up to its meaty competitors. A slightly sweet sauce finishes with a hint of honey mustard. You can order family-style, by the plate or sandwich.
Insider Tips The Extras Thanks to one of the few open-pit barbecues left in Central Texas, you can see the meat smoking over the handmade stone ring.
Know Before You Go The drive to Driftwood is easy, but the Salt Lick also ships to any address in the U.S.

FW, sorry bout the beer thing.... I try to stay out of Austin (Gig 'em!).... anyway, we definately need some embalming fluid and some burned animals on the pit..... ah, and we can talk about all the riches.... what could have been.... oh well, I am riding CMKX all the way out... to the ground, or to the moon... Job kinda bites... need something to dream about Hey, after a few rounds, maybe, we could play some party games.... "pin the cuffs on the MM" Hahahahahahahahahhahaha
