Smiling Tiger Restaurant Pop Up #10: Meet Our Purveyors Part 7:John Wesley Coleman III + Eric Static
Afrika Bambaataa was busy so we had to think fast. We got word to Eric Static that we needed a dj for the Smiling Tiger pop up restaurant we booked at Tamale House East, and he came through in a big way.
John Wesley Coleman will be spinning pure Texas vinyl along with Eric Static at the biggest Spring feast East Austin has ever seen.
If eating big plates of chow whilst listening to Doug Sahm, Ernest Tubb and Willie Nelson is amenable to you then come on out.
Here's a bio of the men who will be manning the turntables on Saturday April 13th at 7pm:
The food always tastes better if you have to cross a set of railroad tracks to get at it. One of our all time favorite barbecue houses was in Leeds, Alabama, and to even think about getting there you had to motor down gravel roads and cross at least 3 sets of railroad tracks.
Probably sold out. We clicked on the purchase tickets button on the website of Foodways Texas like we were playing Defender at Lost World Arcade and were met with naught.
Apparently plenty folks in Austin have an extra $280 for barbecue symposiums.
Wonder how tough their door staff will be? It's been a good while since we gorilla rolled a doorman to get into a hot venue.
Might be worth it.
Partial list of meat-y luminaries to be doing symposium stuff:
Nationally respected farmers Judy and Kenneth Anderle down in Mt. Olive Texas are known to put out the finest molasses in USA. We became aware of their 114 acre operation from Foodways Texas (Marvin Bendele,) and the documentary "Good, Better, Best" via the lens of young filmmaker Keeley Steenson.
It's a tour de force.
It takes 4 months of hard work to get a crop of sorghum turned into molasses, but it's a task that the Anderles gladly accept to keep this important tradition alive.
