Houston Rodeo BBQ Cookoff 2015

We’ve been in Houston for two and a half years (!!!) and we’ve never before been to the largest rodeo on planet earth. This changes in 2015. We have our season passes, and godammit, we’re going this year (but more on that in another post, y’know, after the Rodeo has happened.) For now, we’ve put ourselves in...

I can’t remember much after sundown, but I know this: Booze was drunk Money was lost I snapped some photos while I was still...
