Go Spurs Go
San Antonio’s mayor had a wager with the mayor of Memphis for the outcome of the series, San Antonio Tex-Mex or Memphis BBQ.
A Friendly Wager
As I scoped out San Antonio, some years ago, the standing joke was, “There are four food groups in San Antonio: Tacos, BBQ, beer and tequila.” Don’t complain, it was the way I heard it. Seems, on occasion, it’s true.
My favorite book, Two-Meat Tuesday, is a title derived from a BBQ special. I’m partial.
Why bother with something as pedestrian as Memphis BBQ? Seriously? From the big chains, like Bill Miller’s and my personal favorite, Rudy’s, to the few hole-in-the-wall dives that are near underground legends, there’s a plethora of choices.
Spurs were a clean sweep. I’d just expect more from the mayor. Former congressional legend has a marker in one local place, and I’d expect the mayor’s twin brother (D-congress) to have similar marker in another place, see him there often enough, but BBQ from outside of Bexar County? Travis or Caldwell County, sure. Some other state? Seriously? How is that a prize?
Should have some mercy and send them some Q, show them how it’s down. Check the history of BBQ, it started here.
