Rooster’s GuitarBQ 2nd Annual Crawfish Boil
2000 pounds of crawfish and live music at a quintessential Texas-style venue…count us in! For $25 you can enjoy all the crawfish you can eat as well as musical performances by Bobby Davis with Stefan Prigmore & James Nored, Back Road Drifters, Rick Dennis and The Double JR Band and Phil Hamilton. (Insider’s tip: Be sure to bring your own lawn chair as well as any alcoholic beverages you may want, and don’t forget to stop by the ATM before you go because this is a cash-only event.)
Love vino? If so, this event is for you! Sip and savor award-winning wines from 23 Texas wineries along with regional culinary creations. Talented artists and musicians will also be at several of the wine stops. (Insider’s tip: The event typically sells out. So purchase your ticket and reserve your accommodation as soon as possible.)
