APRIL ISSUE, OUT NOW! John Spong on the demise of the Dixie Chicks, Skip Hollandsworth gives you a story about a woman’s basketball team that’s straight outta “A League of Their Own”, @jordanbreal goes antiquing Round Top style and @ericagrieder wants to know who’s afraid of lil’ old Texas? All this, for you gentle reader! (at Texas Monthly)
Gentle reader, the November issue is LIVE! You are a mere click away from reading S.C. Gwynne on the last ranching families in Texas, part one of Pamela Colloff’s recount of what happened to Michael Morton, how Jordan Breal gets to stay at the 10 best hotels in Texas (it’s a hard job, somebody has to do it) and Oscar Cásares on why that accent mark makes all the difference in his name. Jam packed issue, just for you! Look for it on newsstands tomorrow, or go check the mail already will ya? Maybe Mailman Mike has brought you something to turn that frown upside down.
And now, for the most important question of the day: Who’s coming out to the Texas Monthly BBQ Festival on Sunday? Raise a sauce covered paw with some pride! If you weren’t lucky enough to score tickets to this year’s fest never fear, we will be out tweeting and instagramming (our handle is @texasmonthly) the heck out of the event while it happens.
To get you in the meaty mood, check out what we had to say about who won the BBQ battle between Taylor and Lockhart in 1973, round one of the list of the 50 best joints in Texas in 1997, our current list from 2008 and the tale of two pitmasters from this February. We are not responsible for any damage to your computer, keyboard or phone from uncontrollable drooling.
See you in the pit!
