Star of Texas Rodeo: Cowboy Breakfast

Last year, The Wife and Kids got up extra early for a Cowboy Breakfast at Auditorium Shores. The Cowboy Breakfast is the traditional opener of the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo. I opted to sleep in and miss it, but the reports from the family afterwords made me sorry I missed it. An Austin Chronicle article from 2005 does a pretty good job of describing it.

This year’s Cowboy Breakfast is this Friday from 6am to 9am. You can park at Palmer Events Center. I’ll see you there.

    Ugh I hate the freakin rodeo and all the chubby lawyers and bankers wearin their cowboy costumes. More Californication of Austin is in order asap. Maybe they can move this to Round Rock next year, part of it is in Travis County after all.

    Can’t say I’m much of a fan of the rodeo itself, but this event’s got a lot of fans. And it’s free food. Everyone loves free.

    Not sure about your Californication argument. If I’m reading their web site correctly, they’ve been doing this rodeo in some form since 1938.

    Lighten up Johnny, and embrace yer inner cowboy. Rodeo rocks, and I’m as old-Austin hippy as you can get. You go play with your bi-coastal snobs at SXSW, and I’ll stay local and real with the rodeo, ‘k?
