Breakfast taco sale - another Chamber ‘cowboy tradition’
By Judith Pannebaker
The 10th - or maybe ninth, but who’s countin’? - annual Bandera County Chamber of Commerce Taco Sale will take place Friday, Jan. 9.
According to Cowboy Cuisine’s Dusty Britches, the fun begins at daybreak and ends “when the food runs out.” Officially, however, the good eatin’ is scheduled from 6:30 am until 10 am.
As always, Britches will do the culinary honors. Volunteers will serve the Hill Country’s favorite breakfast victuals from an authentic chuck wagon parked on Main Street in front of the Bandera County Courthouse. Additionally, Britches noted that Brick Gibson of Brick’s River Café donated condiments for the flavorsome fundraiser.
Donations for the tasty grub will benefit participants in the 2009 Bandera County Junior Livestock Show and Sale.
“Last year we raised $1,000 in donations that we used to purchase 4-H and FFA projects at the junior livestock auction,” said the Chamber’s Cerise Ripps.
“Every cent we raise goes right back to the kids of Bandera County,” Britches echoed. “Last year we sold between 600 and 800 breakfast tacos.”
He also said local businesses typically pre-order quantities of tacos that volunteers deliver the morning of the fundraiser. To pre-order breakfast tacos, call the Chamber office at 830-796-3280 or Britches at 830-796-5569.
More importantly, don’t miss what’s probably one of the best tastin’ ways to help a good cause - the youth of Bandera County - in the New Year. It’s just another cowboy tradition brought to you from the fine folks at the Bandera County Chamber of Commerce.
