    Another bbq place you might want to try if you can fit it into the limited hours they are open is CattleAck. Not to far from the hotel.

    I'm sure Marvin can speak to this one.

    Not even bankers hours!

    I love me some BBQ, but dayum

    Thursdays 10:30am – 2pm
    Fridays 10:30am – 2pm
    1st Saturdays 10:30 am – 2pm

    i have not been there yet,they have those hours because they sell out. bbq business takes a lot of time and the owner feels that he gets enough money with those hours.

    Like everyone is saying, those hours on a bbq place is usually a pain, but also a very good sign.

    Exactly. We send a person around 9 on Friday morning, from the office, to bring us lunch. The group usually gets about $300 worth. Mostly beef ribs and burnt ends. It is the sh**!

    Ten50 is really good but this is a step above! You can thank me later!

    Or, pay for someone to get in line and order good you. Seems there's a pretty good business going, especially for Franklin's. There's so many good BBQ places there I couldn't bring myself to wait too long for any one place.

    Also, Russ, you kept trying to help me set up...if I had let you do that, we wouldn't have gotten the accolades we did from that reviewer you drunken sumbitch!

    I'm excited for you guys. A lot of things about this show remind me of the small 25 room California Audio Show that's coming up here in July.

    If for nothing else, I know you guys will have better music than most of the rooms I just heard at Axpona.

    @joecoulson will always remember the moment I was about to lose it after hearing the Pink Panther Theme for the 4th time in under an hour.

    I am planning on bringing my pre, amps, DAC, laptop as source but quite likely my streamer as well along with my speakers.

    But I may also be acting as a guinea pig for some Ushers...
