BBQ bus #1 is in the books!

I'm so excited about how well our bus trip went Saturday that I don't know where to stop. Let's see...the food at all 3 stops (Snow's, City Meat Market, & Louie Mueller) was fantastic. The service at all 3 places was incredible (e.g. giving us door prizes unexpectedly, coming on the bus to speak to the group before we drove off, personally cutting out meats, answering questions from the group, table checks and more table checks). We stayed on schedule, but it wasn't rushed. We had cold drinks from Big Red and Honest Tea. We had 3 kinds of cupcakes from Sugar Mama's. We had the one and only Chet "The Daytripper" Garner on board. We had a private beer tasting at Hops & Grain Brewery. It was simply awesome. Our riders were wonderful, and unless they were just faking it so that I wouldn't have a meltdown and fall into a deep depression, they seemed to be having a great time. One of our riders even put together a picture recap via YouTube, by using the pictures that were tweeted with our official trip hashtag (#manupbbqbus). We made videos, took pictures, I talked about how awesome Alabama football is. You know, the usual. I can't thank our sponsors enough for their generosity. And, of course, our sincere thanks to Snow's, City Meat Market, & Louie Mueller, for making this first trip such a success. You guys were, to say the least, a hit. We all left fatter & happier. Bookoos of pics are on the way, as are a few videos. In the meantime, 1 pic from each stop (from top to bottom: Snow's, City Meat Market, Louie Mueller, Hops & Grain):
