Sat.Aug.20/2016*Hill Country Rally For Kids*
Posted by TopDown on 2016/9/8 11:20:00 (203 reads)

*This year's charity show for children's groups was in quaint old downtown Dripping Springs all along Mercer Street. About 150 diverse cars from Ferrari to rat rod entered this charity event. Weather went from clouds to drizzle & finally very heavy rain @3:30pm after the awards. None of us won the Jeep or the 4 wheeler. Should have listened to the voices in my head & left @1pm.
*The good side was *free visitor admission this year* & the side walk overhead cover from the old gas stations & other historic buildings,....and my extra large umbrella.
"Better than 100+ degrees" as someone pointed out,....agreed !!
*Tony Merrick's V8 Miata got a lot of attention as usual & Dave Friar's Mustang GT won a trophy for Best Custom. Good show, nice company, worth the wet weather.

*This is a new weekly Sat.night 7-9pm (summer hrs.) open cruise-in @Lowes-Leander. When *Sweet Rides* sends an invitation to show up as a group, I will post/announce it as an event. We can meet/eat before/after or just visit.
*We met them Aug.6 & Sept.3. Weather has cooled with a usually nice breeze, interesting mix of cars & new people. I tried The Great Wall for dinner blind last Sat. Don't go there. Oh well,.....plenty of other places nearby next time. LD.

Jun.18/2016 *Cele Store BBQ* w/Z Club
Posted by TopDown on 2016/6/25 12:50:00 (406 reads)

*Time for a little rual Texas, movie & BBQ history.....(www.CeleStore.com). Just 21 miles from Austin in the middle of open farm land around Manor is a very old, rickety former saloon, general store & now quirky BBQ joint.
*We drove in 2 groups w/16 people from Plugerville, rally style w/navigators (coded route) & group cruise (sometimes a little lost), but generally arriving together.
*The 1891 Richland Saloon became the Cele Store, then a family owned BBQ place. Movie credits include "Texas Chainsaw Massacre I, II & III" (Leather Face), "A Perfect World (Clint Eastwood/Kevin Costner)" & "Second Hand Lions" (Michael Caine/Robert Duval).
* D├ęcor is still 1900's, hours are limited, sometimes w/live music. The no-menu offerings ($5.-$16.) are simply sausage, brisket, ribs, cheese, onions, pickles & drinks,... period. Bring your own sides, desert & hard liquor. Quirky.
*Weather started out warm, muggy & top down. On leaving after a slow lunch, it was hot & humid & the black cover over my folded convertible top was finger blistering. Sheep skin covers, that I get kidded about, over also black leather seats, were still cool & breezy as always. Then,...top up w/a/c for home !! Summer is here.
*Nice drive by the Z Club again. Thanks !!

Sat.May 21, 2016: Willow City Loop w/Z Club.
Posted by TopDown on 2016/5/22 8:40:00 (327 reads)

*Lots of events in April put the usual bluebonnet cruises later this year. The good part was continued rain fall & mild weather, extending the wild flower season much longer.
*When arriving top down @Bee Caves City Park w/sprinkling rain, I put the top up. Rain stopped immediately,...makes sense. 2 motorcycles & 6 cars left under cloudy skies. The route went through Hamilton Pool, Cypress Mill, Round Mtn., Sandy, & Willow City.
*The Willow City Loop was completely empty of the usual spring traffic jam & all ours at leisure w/a nice pace all the way. All the spring wild flowers, except the earlier blue bonnets, were still in full bloom. Yellow was most notably scattered all over the canyon below the road. Not a bad trade for going after the usual grid lock traffic & something to remember for scheduling next year.
*We squeezed into the very last parking spots in downtown Fredericksburg for a German style lunch & went our separate ways home. A detour on 87S. found 1/2 gal. peach cider @Das Peach Has. A little expensive, but irresistible. Got one !!
*Thanks to Marlene Van Sickle & the Z Club for planning & leading another enjoyable hill country drive.
