Your North Texas Section of the MBCA is pleased to announce a once in a lifetime pairing of Boutique Coffee, Texas Scenery, Texas Pecans and the most incredible Texas Beef prepared Ranch Chuck Wagon style to ever cross your lips.  No hype, no spin, no Pivot.  Fact.  Check with Laura and George W., yeah  #43,that one.  Yes, it is a bit of a drive out west, 200 miles, 3 hours, each way, but worth it.  We will arrive a little before 1PM for lunch.  I recommend Tom and Lisa’s Tenderloin.  It is Legendary.  James B. Foundation said so. Their second cook book is alright too. 

We will meet in Carrollton early Saturday morning for the drive to Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, south of Abilene.  Our gathering point will be at Parks Coffee where we will be guests of the Parks Family for a roasting toasting tour of the factory and slurping coffee in the laboratory with Carlos M., Parks Director of Coffee.  Gather at 7AM, tour at 7:30 followed by Coffee with ‘sticky buns’, scones and “Virgin” Mimosas.  Roll away Briefing, caravanning west before 8:30.  Be sure to show up with full fuel and offload excess coffee before we leave Parks. 

Our first stop after leaving Parks for a bio break will be two hours down the road at Santo Texas, this side of Ranger, where you can stock up on candied pecans, pralines and Jalapeno Lemonade.  We will not dwell long here or we’ll be late for our 12:40 lunch reservation at Perini’s. 

Keeping to our schedule we will wind south of Abilene thru BG arriving at Tom and Lisa Perini’s Steakhouse a scoosch past 12:40.  The parking lot is NOT paved so slow traffic should keep right so the rest of us can get to our reserved Tables on time.  Lunch is on your own but we will have a surprise or two folded into the Member event fee of $20 per person. Pay Pal Button below.

For social distancing, masking and all the safe socializing requirements, logistics and enjoyment this event is limited to 16 persons total.   Please reserve your seat via PayPal so we’ll know you’ll be joining us.  When we reach capacity the PP launch button will be taken down.
