BBQ Tours R Us

When Springer, the world’s leading science and technology publishing company, hosted a three day conference in Houston, they wanted to see a little slice of Texas, but they only had three hours on a Tuesday night. So I arranged a bus trip around town to drink Texas beer, sample some Q, and look at the pits at some outstanding BBQ joints. Among the conference attendees were visitors from England, Ireland, Denmark, Afghanistan, and Australia–and a good time was had by all.
