2011: Year in Review

Ate at 92 Texas BBQ joints - probably more, because surely not everyone in our group let me know each time they went somewhere. 92, at least.

Attended the Super Bowl XLV media party, for which we selected and coordinated the BBQ joints that catered it

Threw the 2nd annual 
Gettin' Sauced! at Independence Brewing Co. in Austin. The event grew from 45 sauces from 1 state (Texas) to 186 sauces from 26 states & 2 foreign countries. The event grew from 0 sponsors to 14 sponsors.
