Indeed it is. I landed this afternoon in Austin, worked for quite a while, and then headed downtown to Cooper's for some extremely good barbecue.
We're talking serious meat here, rich and delicious brain food.
Of course, we had to add a little bacon jalapeno mac and cheese, some beans, and a little Wonder Bread and pickles.
For the short time before I wanted to crash (I didn't; it was a very late work night), I'm sure my IQ doubled under the influence of the barbecue's power.
Pure Texas joy.
