Crickets in, power on!

Crickets in, power on!

You know: We told you about Hopper Bars a while ago, right here.

And now the local energy-bar start-up is launching its first Kickstarter campaign to generate the monetary and social ooomph necessary for fueling the manufacture & marketing of its sweet power-packed rectangles of nutty, crickety goodness.

Yes, the busy people of Hopper Bars are hoping to ride a proverbial groundswell of support to culinary and mercantile success. And, speaking of proverbs, if you're gonna ride … then ride The White Horse. Which is, of course, the popular whiskey-sodden honky tonk at 500 Comal on the Eastside – which is precisely where the Hopper Bars Kickstarter Party starts carrying on and sharing free samples and promoting entomophagy and so on, at 5:30 this very evening.

Note: Hopper honcho Jack Ceadel swears that all the bars, now, are about as tasty as that delicious Longhorn bar of theirs was from the get-go. There's a claim that bears investigating, we daresay, especially within the cool interior of that Horse of a watering hole tonight.
