Amarillo Changes from Day to Night
Trip Start Apr 23, 2013
11Trip End May 05, 2013
So the day was spent making business calls and working on emails and as you can see by one picture, taking naps.
The weather finally broke, the skies cleared and the wind stopped near dusk, so the cowboy and his wife, weary with cabin fever, called the free longhorn limo to the Big Texan steakhouse and brewery and did some good, old-fashioned tourist stuff
The Big Texan (http://www.bigtexan.com) is a very popular tourist attraction dating back to the heydays of Route 66 during the 60's. If you can eat their 72 oz. steak in less than an hour, you get it for free. If not, it costs $72. Needless to say, we didn't try it, instead opting for the prime rib-stuffed potato skins and their own brewed beer: Jackrabbit Red, Whiskey Barrel Stout, and Whoop Your Donkey IPA.
As you can see, we had a grand time. We also happened to be there on the same night the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders were there for a private party. Yeehaw!
So, with the turn in the weather, we are going to try for Memphis tomorrow...hasta luego Amarillo!l
