Random Event Center, Boerne, TX - Sat. - Mon., Apr. 19-21




 

For lunch on Saturday, we met Bob at Random. Random Beer Garden and Event Center is the brainchild of Bob's boss, Michael. Michael is the owner of a small hospital clean room construction company in San Antonio.


One year ago, his boss bought a seven-acre property in the country close to Boerne Lake City Park. His vision was to put in a beer garden and event center on the property. The first improvement to the property was to turn the garage into a beer garden.

Over the past year, the beer garden has doubled in size and now has 76 beers on tap, including craft beers from Boerne breweries. They have built a bigger bandstand, made improvements to the historic home on the property, and added a large bouncy slide for kids.

Random is open Thursday through Sunday from noon until closing. On any given day, two to three food trucks are on hand for lunch and dinner.

One week ago, a fundraiser event was held out in the yard under the old pecan trees. A wedding will be held on the property in July.

When we were there on Saturday, Susan, Darren, and I helped fill Easter eggs with candy for the kids' Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday afternoon. In total, 600 Easter eggs were put out in the field. (We didn't fill all of them, quite a few had been done already.)

While we were there, the Shabby Bus beer tour came by. About 10 people piled out to sample beers at Random.

We had a good time, ate and drank, then headed for home.

On Sunday, Susan and Darren invited us to their home for Easter dinner. Susan put out a wonderful dinner: ham, hashed brown casserole, pecan sticky buns, homemade dill pickles, and a St. Louis Butter Cream Cake (yummy!). I took a huge green salad and deviled eggs. All together, eight people were at dinner. Four of us ate watching the Spurs vs. Mavericks NBA play-off game. The other four sat at the dining room table. The Spurs won.

Tonight, the Blazers vs. Rockets NBA playoff game had Bob on the edge of his chair yelling at the TV. What an exciting game. The Portland Trailblazers won by two in Houston. Yippee!
