Saturday Blog, Part 2 - Foodstock - Aug. 16

Saturday evening, five of us from Traveler's World RV Park drove an hour northwest to Boerne, Texas to participate in Random Family Fun Event Center's Foodstock celebration. This weekend is the 45th anniversary of Woodstock.

We arrived at Random and gave Vicki, Ralph and Randi a tour of the place. Seven food trucks were there to choose from with varied menus. You can see kids and dogs are welcome at Random. Dogs must be leashed and under control. Kids not so much. LOL.

Fat Bellies -- what a name for a food truck!
I think they called the next food truck "Scratch Bistro" because their food is made from scratch. And I can tell you from first-hand experience their food is awesome. The Ginger Soy Salmon was served over yakisoba noodles with cabbage slaw on top. The flavors worked together so well. It all melted in my mouth in one big happy taste explosion. I shared with Bob and he shared his chicken BBQ pizza with me. Vicki ordered Lobster Mac from Scratch Bistro and it was excellent too.

The big slide and in-ground bouncer - very popular with kids!

All of us were able to choose the food we liked. Vicki and Randi chose Teka Molina for fresh Tex-Mex, Bob ordered the chicken BBQ pizza from Z-s Wood-Fired Pizza, Ralph chose a meaty sandwich from Hippie Momma's, and, as stated above, I had Garlic Soy Salmon and herbed French fries at Scratch Bistro. All of us were very happy with our food choices.

Once we had food, it was time for drinks. With 80 beers on tap, the choice was difficult. A few of us loved the root beer on tap. But Redd's Apple Ale, Woodchuck Pear Hard Cider, and Stella Cidre were also popular choices.

The music was wonderful, all from either Woodstock or the 60s and 70s. Lots of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Doors, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Santana, you get the drift.

When we arrived at random, the temperature was around 90. When the sun set, it cooled down nicely, especially when a strong breeze started blowing.

Our oldest son Randall works at Random and he spent some time sitting with us and chatting with Bob.

Toward the end of the evening, Ralph bought a dessert pizza to share from Z's Wood-Fired Pizza. It was served hot with fruit sauce, caramel, and chocolate (I think). Thanks, Ralph!

he evening was perfect for eating, socializing, listening to music, relaxing, and wandering around the property. We'll definitely be going out there again! Want to join us?

Travel Bug out.
