BBQ Update (try to contain your excitement)

Sometimes I laugh that anyone actually reads the stuff I post on here. But anyway, I decided after I made the last post, that I would email Park Avenue BBQ and see if they were bottling their sauce and if I could buy a case. Yes...you heard me...a case. I don't mess around when it comes to barbecue sauce. Why yes, I would consider carrying it in my purse to a restaurant around here if I could find one that even sells baby back ribs (there's always Chili's). I love food, so sue me.

The exciting news is...the CEO/President emailed me back the same day, personally. Who doesn't appreciate that kind of consideration? He said that he is working on getting the sauce bottled, and would send me one as soon as they are rolling on that. This does not solve the problem of me needing like...a case, but I won't look a gift horse in the mouth...or a sauce horse for that matter. The more exciting news is that he said he has recently started to consider opening locations in other states, including...Texas! Would it be inappropriate to pray for this to happen? Probably. But I would be thrilled if it did!

I wonder if I started some sort of letter writing campaign to sway him toward opening a Houston location as his first out of state location would accelerate the process. I suppose I'm unlikely to have much luck since I only know one other person locally who even understands the glory that is Park Avenue BBQ. Do you hear me Carol? I know that you are not afraid of providing feedback to businesses via email.

I happen to enjoy reading your stuff that you post!!! It takes me away from my humdrum life here in Virginia.

Hey, I now have started my own blog as well but I will warn you that we probably won't agree on lots as I can be most opinionated. If you don't agree on any particular post, just skip it ok? I just need readers.

Heres the address

Hope you enjoy mine even half as much as I enjoy yours.

I was just watching Diners Drive Ins and Dives on Food Network and they had featured a Texas barbecue place that served barbecued pork and I'm pretty sure they put vinegar in the barbecue sauce when they made it. Of course it was in Austin and I need to pull out my Texas atlas because I'm sure that's far far away from Houston...but it is in Texas if you ever decide to travel... I watched it right after reading your post so I was thinking of your case of barbecue sauce dilemma the whole time...

Funny, I saw that episode too. It would be quite the drive for some bbq! :) Texas is enormous.
