Last year temperatures were near a hundred degrees but this year they were in the low 40s. The event was held indoors in a big green barn of a building but they had heaters near every entrance and temperatures were not too bad inside, especially once the masses came in. We cued up for our goodie bags and wrist bands at 1:30 and stood around in the cattle pen until the gates were opened at 2 o'clock.
We spent another hour wandering around, taking photos and drinking more of Four Corners' wonderful brew. After a couple of cups of Boss Lady I found they had a few cans of their excellent porter and switched over to that. I did get a funny caricature done and was on hand as The Snob and Chef Luscher unveiled the longest sausage in Texas.
UPDATE: Meat Fight reports they raised over $100,000 to help fight MS. Not bad for a bunch of carnivores.
