    Texas MeatUp - Spring Edition Dates Set For April…Yippy Ki Yay!

    Howdy everyone! (official Texan talk) Well, our Spring MeatUp dates and information are set. After conferring with my Board of Directors for the MeatUp we’ve decided on Friday April 22 thru Sunday April 24 for our semi annual MeatUp. It will once again be held in Rockdale, Tex. at The Rainbow Courts. By now, many of you are familiar with the place and location, but here’s the scoop for anyone who might not know.

    Rockdale, Tex. is located about one hour east of Austin. It’s close to many highly regarded BBQ spots, including the world famous Snow’s BBQ. Most of the nearby locations are included in Texas Monthly Magazine’s…Top 50 In Texas..list. We’ll be staying at The Rainbow Courts in Rockdale, a truly wonderful place with well appointed rooms and beautiful, spacious grounds. And the room rates are a great value for the accommodations. One excellent BBQ place is right down the street from The Rainbow, Brett’s Backyard BBQ. They made the Texas Monthly list as well.

    I’ve booked my room for Thursday thru Sunday if anyone wants to come a day early…and experience an extra day of bullshit and lies 😂. Troutman, Captain Mike and a few others will be there then also. I’ve blocked us off a set of 10 additional rooms which will be reserved for Amazing Ribs Pit Members. The rates for those rooms range from $60. per night to $90. per night. You may ask for a larger or more expensive room than those if you wish. They’ll accommodate you if available. I suggest booking your room ASAP before they’re gone. If for any reason you need to cancel, you can cancel your reservation up to 2 days before your planned check in date, with no charges.

    Friday night we have a Happy Hour get together from 5-7 on the grounds of The Rainbow. These are always fun and a good time to meet everyone and socialize. Remember that spouses or a +1 are always welcome and encouraged. All the wives last time mentioned what a great time they had. There’s a couple of great restaurants right down the street for us to have dinner Friday night. One is an excellent Mexican restaurant and the other serves great steaks and seafood. These MeatUps are always relaxed, no pressure to eat somewhere you might not want to. But wherever you choose, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

    RAINBOW COURTS CONTACT INFORMATION

    One thing worth mentioning, please call the Rainbow Courts directly to book your room. Do not use a 3rd party site like Experion etc. They have to pay them a hefty fee for using them. This is a small Mom and Pop operation here. Also, you’ll pay more for using a third party site. Also, please don’t use the Rainbow Courts website to book your room. Calling them directly will insure you get up to date info. on room availability. Their number is 512-446-2361. After you hear the recorded message, dial 0 and someone will answer to help.

    EDIT: TELL THEM YOU’RE WITH THE AMAZING RIBS GROUP

      Thanks fer th Kind Invite, Brother, it wouldn't take yall too awful much hoistin, an mebbe even only one shoulder.

      TX is way more logistically approachable than Memphis is, as I don't havedta deal with many hominids on most of th way there...10 hours flat, to Camp County, where I lived, ridin within ± 5 mph of posted...one can make some Rilly Good time, on th Indian Nations Turnpike, but ya gotsta stop frequently, an cough up some cash...WORTH IT!!!

      Reckon another 2-4 hours to Rockdale...

    Whoo hooo it’s on again !!! I’m personally looking at some Austin venues this season but lots of choices. And just to reiterate what John said, if you are planning to come reserve a spot at the ‘Bow now. You can always cancel later.

    Spinaker do I hear you dialing your phone???

      Panhead John That's a pretty big trip! I was willing to do Memphis, but doublin' that trip? I seen your group's liquor supply and not a bottle of EH Taylor to be seen! Food looked great though.

      Oh wow, CandySueQ I didn't think about that. I'm going to be driving all over Texas so that should be really nice to see.

      Bluebonnet’s are probably done that late in April, but there’s a few hundred other things that come after them. Something will be blooming on the sides of the roads, have to wait until we see what the weather is like in March to say what it will be.

      Something I forgot to mention, while all the rooms are nice and a good deal, a few people have mentioned the $60. rooms were just a tad small…..Something to consider if you haven’t booked a room yet.

      Just so everyone knows, this invitation to attend is open to all our Pit Brothers and Sisters, Moderators and Meathead. It was definitely unfortunate the Meat Up in Memphis was cancelled. I know there were lots of disappointed people who spent a lot of time and energy making plans. As a possible consolation prize…anyone that would like to attend our Texas Hoe Down…come on down! We’ll leave the light on fer ya.

      Always something. This time my daughter is due to have my 3rd grandchild in March, in San Diego. My plan right now is to take 3 weeks off and drive the RV out there. I won’t be able to do that and attend the meat up. One of these days though, god willing and the creek don’t rise…

        Man, you are just one disappointment after another, you really need to think about your priorities and what's important. You know I'm kidding, brother, hopefully next time. Congratulations on g-baby III.

      OK everyone, I'm going to get an attendance roster/head count together. If you are bringing a spouse/friend/significant other please let me know so we can get an approximate count. I know rooms at the Rainbow Courts are going fast so be sure to book ASAP.
