True 'Cue: Eat, Drink, Watch Movies

What better way to kick off the first Central Texas Barbecue Festival than to partake in barbecue with all five senses? Enjoy a finger-lickin'-good Eat, Drink, Watch Movies screening of three distinctive barbecue documentaries while chowing down on combo platters from Austin's homegrown, 30-year-old County Line Bar-B-Q at 7pm on Saturday, Oct. 8. Documentaries on the menu include the PBS favorite Smokestack Lightning: A Day in the Life of Barbecue; the locally made Czech Links: 800 Lbs. of Tradition in a Texas Czech Family; and a standout from SXSW Film 04, Barbecue: A Texas Love Story. There's no such thing as too much barbecue, so for a mere $25, you can join us at the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown to see it, hear about it, smell it, feel it, and taste it. Some of the proceeds from this screening will benefit Meals on Wheels and More. Make reservations now at
