A 1:54 AM note from the Tarrant County Libertarian Party Chair, John Spivey:
Announcing a new Meetup for The Tarrant County Libertarian Meetup!
What: Fort Worth Libertarian Barbeque Joint Meetup
When: August 16, 2008 1:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: Come to the world’s greatest Barbeque joint! It’s not my opinion. It’s a fact. And they don’t take credit cards. Period.
Meetup up with us on Saturday August 16th at 1:30. If you’ve never been to Angelo’s, you’re in for a treat. The rips are just great, tender, big, and juicy. The chopped beef samiches are actually my favorite. Order the ‘chopped beef all the way’ and you get the black tar heroin of bbq sandwiches: Mrs. Bairds Hamburger Buns (white), magical chopped beef, chopped onions, pickles and mustard. I just drooled.
Sadly, our days of visiting FW’s favorite bbq joint are numbered – if we don’t act! Angelo’s is one of the businesses that will be ‘under water’ as part of the land grab associated with Kay Granger’s monument to herself, the Trinity River Vision. Although this project is very important to the future of her son’s employment… it will spell the end of “chopped beefs all the way” that have been a part of Fort Worth since 1958. Fifty years – down the drain. Literally.
This meeting will be more of a social time… I promise not to stand up and blather on – – too much. 🙂 I’ve got stuff to catch you up on, but I won’t speechify. Seriously, let’s get together; eat a few CBATWs and enjoy their schooners of beer (goldfish bowl size) and a good conversation. Angelo’s has a wonderful charm that you just don’t find outside of 1960 Fort Worth. I enjoyed going there while they still had sawdust floors. Although I haven’t asked and can’t/won’t verify this, my theory is their fantastic flavor comes from never cleaning their smoker in 50 years.
Seriously, don’t let that scare you off. Where else will you find 100 stuffed animal heads and a bear, various basses and trouts and John Wayne memorabilia. You may also see celebrities too! Stars spotted in the past includes: Legendary pianist Van Cliburn, ‘Leave it to Beaver’s’ Tony Dow (Wally), Paris Hilton, Bob Segar… Heck, even Kay Granger has been spotted in here (but hasn’t popped in since – oh 2004).
As usual – if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Since we’re having an ‘unoffical meetup’ in Grapevine with the ‘IOUSA’ film event on Aug 21, I thought I’d like to spread this “Official Meetup” around to the other side of the county. Please bring a friend or two. They will thank you for it.
If you forget cash, they have an ATM. If you didn’t bring an ATM/Debit Card, you can watch me eat.
Note: This is the first meetup we’ve had in a long while without the prospect of free beer. The giant schooners are $2.50, so stop whining.
