I recently returned from Mavs & BBQ VII. Each April, several friends and I eat our way to Dallas and back. The gluttony is only interrupted briefly to attend a Dallas Mavericks basketball game. What's on the menu you ask: fried pies in Davis, OK, BBQ/steaks in Lewisville, TX, the occasional hot dog at the American Airlines Center, and tacos at Jack In The Box somewhere on the north side of the metroplex. In recent years, several have added Tums to the menu also (why, I'm not sure).
We usually drive back after the basketball game but it is a struggle. The only thing typically keeping the driver awake is the havoc that 5,000 empty calories can wreak on one's intestines. This year we decided to stay the night in Dallas and play golf the next day. Brilliant! I don't know why we didn't think of this before.
Quick summary: 1) company was great, 2) food was great, 3) Dirk hit a 3 at the buzzer for a Mavs win and playoff clinch, 4) golf was fun and free (always a plus in my book). All in all we had a great time. I guess we'll have to do it again next year!
