Texas Independence Day is March 2nd, and our favorite state will be 176 years old this year. Instead of sharing this piece of trivia around the water cooler and forgetting about it, take a suggestion from the Austinot:
Visit Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q between 2 and 4 PM on March 2nd, and buy some brisket! Each person can get a quarter pound of Rudy’s juicy brisket for only 32 cents. Amazing deal, huh?
But here’s what makes the deal even more amazing: All 32-cent collections will be given to volunteer firefighters in Texas, in partnership with the State Firemen’s & Fire Marshals’ Association of Texas.
Unless you took a timely vacation to the fjords of Norway, you were probably around for the searing Summer of 2011. Our volunteer firefighters played an indispensable role in protecting our land and homes!
So combine your love for good brisket with your appreciation for local heroes all over the state, and make your way to Rudy’s this Friday!
All Austin locations are participating. If you want to let your friends and family outside of Austin know about this special event, here is the full list of participating locations from RudysBBQ.com:
- All Houston Area Locations
- All Austin Area Locations (includes Round Rock)
- All El Paso Locations
- College Station
- Colorado Springs, CO
- Corpus Christi
- Del Rio
- New Braunfels
- Norman, OK
And here’s two more easy things you can do to support volunteer firefighters. If you “like” Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q on Facebook and follow Rudy’s on Twitter between now and March 9th, that’ll be $2 for the firefighters! $1 is being donated for every “like” or follow, through Rudy’s Follow2Support program. How easy is that?
