Go Big or Go Home


I learned the meaning of “Go BIG or Go Home” on our recent visit to San Antonio Texas. Before arrival we sat on the bus anxious to visit a destination we had not been before. When a fellow passanger asked where are you headed? We replied Texas. She continued to inform us it is flat, hot, boring and all brown. If we were not the kind of people that strongly believe in different strokes for different folks we would have been crushed. Upon arrival the first street we happen to just by chance walk down was eCommerce! This place looks good to us!  We then proceeded to Riverwalk. Where you walk up and down the canals. You can dine, shop, listen to live music or just sit and people watch. This is right up our alley. We love to just chill out and enjoy the culture. Day 2 was spent with fellow entrepreneurs learning how to utilize social media and our preloaded website tools to grow our businesses. After a long day it was time for some BBQ. No where is there better Brisket than The Salt Lick outside San Antonio. The BBQ pit is massive and the operation is so smooth. You can sit inside or outside under a large tree listening to live country music. The menu is limited but no worries you will be full for days to come. The brisket cuts like butter and the cold slaw is made with vinegar. The blueberry cobbler will have your mouth watering and stomach craving for I believe years. Tony refers to this experience as the Disney world of BBQ. If that wasn’t enough day 3 our hosts Michele and Bruce brought us to downtown Fredericksburg. We dined at Hondos and walked the streets that resembled a photo of a postcard of old Texas. The exteriors of the building remain the same as they did back in the 1800’s. The jail, the bank, the country store all still standing. You can vision horses with cowboys riding through town. Due to the fact it was our 25th anniversary just a few days prior our hosts wanted to make sure we got to spend the day really enjoying ourselves. They gave us many options antique shopping, history tour, vineyard excursion or go to a whole in the wall. Of course we said “whole in the wall”. I now understand the meaning of this term. The whole in the walls are the best places to visit in Texas. We proceeded on to Luckenbach. Cowboy boots and jeans was the fashion attire for the day. We sat and listened to 3 live performers. Making a lasting impression on me was Mark Mckinney. His voice resonated with me and his lyrics were original and unique. We meet many folks from all over the country. To end the day I sat on a longhorn and felt like a cowgirl with city genes. Thank you Texas for all your hospitality.
