Curt - If you guys are in town all weekend, make a pass through Ft. Worth. Venture down to Magnolia and go to Heim's BBQ. There'll likely be a line, but fight through it. Get yourself some burnt bacon ends, mac & cheese, a rib, take your pick. Great joint.

Curt, Roanoke is the original location of the first Babe's.

Also met Dale Moser, Michael Middleton, Larry, Rudy, Devin, and one of Michael's brothers there for my first TBH G2G/lunch one time.

The fish are biting. And there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!
