Field Trip to Bastrop! Who Wants BBQ?

Posted on: August 3rd, 2010 by Julia Rocchi

It might be hard to believe, but people occasionally do leave Austin. And when they do, downtown Bastrop is one destination that's worth the effort.

In this video, Jason leaves the bright moonlights behind and day-trips to this historic small town to chat with Susan Wendel (president of the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce) and work the lunch line at Billy's Pit BBQ with owner Billy Reed.

Oh, and there's a giraffe. With boots on. Check it out.

Bastrop is a field session at the 2010 National Preservation Conference. Join us there and in Austin by registering now.
