On A Bus to Wurstfest 08

Wurstfest 2008

Traveling Bistro has Sunday Brunch at the NOMAD, recently voted the Best Local Neighborhood Bar 2008 by the Austin Chronicle. So we were in the know when NOMAD chartered a bus to Wurstfest 2008, a German fest in New Braunfels, Texas.

What happens when you meet at a bar, to ride on a bus with a keg to a beer and sausage fest and then back on the bus returning to the bar? I’ll just show you. Let’s just say the theme of this whole adventure was BEER!!! yum!!!!

Elgin Sausagefest

Beau Been mentioned the town of Elgin to the Scarlot Harlot and she, of course, made jokes about the Sausage Queen of Elgin. But it’s SO MUCH better than that. At the 20th Annual Hog Eye Festival in Elgin, they will crown King Hog and Queen Sowpreme. Pigarrific!!!!

The festival features live music, handmade arts and crafts, children’s activities, Road Hog Car Show, BBQ Pork Cook-Off, In a Pig’s Eye Dart Contest, the crowning of King Hog or Queen Sowpreme, a children’s costume pet parade, a carnival, the Pearl’s Art Show, Hogeye Hoedown Talent Show, Hogalicious Dessert Contest, Cow Patty Bingo and great food!
