After working the night before at the hospital, Lauren and I stayed up to attend the UT vs A&M Chili Cook-Off. Of course Taya and I are Longhorns; we converted Lauren to a Longhorn for the day. We taught her how to hook'em too! The cook-off was held at a roof top bar. Lots of Longhorns present and very few Aggies. We know how to represent!
We sampled all different kinds of chili. Some were spicy, some were sweet and some were burned. We all had a different favorite and voted accordingly for the People's Choice Award.
It was a beautiful day (one of the first since we've been in New York); the beer was cold and they even raffled off cases of Big Red. Lauren had her first tasting. I think it might have been a little too sweet for the Blue Hen.
After the Cook-Off, we headed to Hill Country BBQ with a lot of other Longhorns. Brisket and Blue Bell were flowing. I made lots of new friends by carrying my 12 pack of Big Red around.
