Random Beer Garden Field Trip - Fri., Mar. 13, 2015

On Friday after work, Travelers World Carefree RV Resort chartered a bus for a field trip to Random Beer Garden in Boerne, Texas. Twenty-eight people piled onto the bus. Our 45-minute drive to Random was uneventful...there wasn't any rush-hour traffic (probably because it's Spring Break).

The evening was lovely, about 72 degrees. When we arrived at Random, I made the announcement that it takes a while to get food from the food trucks, so it would be best to order early, especially if they were hungry.

We all brought folding chairs and set them up in a big circle around two fire pits. We also grabbed a couple of empty picnic tables so we could eat our dinners in comfort, i.e., not balancing the plates in our laps. Although some chose to eat in their own chairs.

 The food trucks at Random tonight were:

Firehouse Fare
Hippie Mommas - "Comfort Food with Attitude"
Plus, Shana from Sugar Belle's Cake Shop was on hand with a selection of her cupcakes: Italian Cream, Turtle, Vanilla with Vanilla Frosting, Chocolate with Vanilla Frosting, and Vanilla with Chocolate Frosting.

 Random has 80 craft brews on tap. Free samples available on request.

What a selection!
Now that's a campfire!

We had a wonderful evening out under the old pecan trees listening to music and getting to know each other better. The fire pits made the temperature just right as the night wore on.

After food, drink, music and conversation, the evening was coming to a close. Everyone started packing up and heading to the bus. No one had to worry about drinking and driving!

Our bus driver delivered us safely back to Travelers World RV Resort at 11:00 p.m.

Let's do this again!


  1. I had no idea about the Beer Garden. Thanks for sharing. We'll have to do it next time we're in the area.

    1. It's a very relaxing place to go on the way to Boerne City Lake.

  2. Looks like you had a nice evening. That fire looked more like a bonfire to me.

    1. We were having trouble getting the logs going, so they threw some cardboard pizza boxes into the fire pit. That worked!

  3. hmmmm. . .I do believe I would need a sample from each of those food trucks. . .love that kinda thang. . .

    I trust Bob is doing good? ? ?

    1. Hi Janice,
      Yes, Bob is doing well. He has his first follow-up visit with the plastic surgeon on Tuesday, 3-24.

  4. Sounds like you working at the RV park has added some new activities for the group of travelers.
