9 years ago, Meredith visited me in California. I promised I would visit her the following summer, but one thing led to another and I never did. So, when she moved to Texas (temporarily), I flew down to finally see what the Lone Star state was all about.
First of all, they have cowboy hats.
And real working, albeit touristy looking stockyards.
There were real cowboys there! Meredith assured me that they were real and non-ironic.
I bet you didn't know you could get wine tastings in the stockyards. But you can at the Cowtown Winery.
We did the robust red flight. It was nice! Authentic Texas wine....with grapes grown in California. Oh well, what can you do?
On to the food very very soon, I promise.
Oh and Meredith took all these photos! She's the best.
