Windy Winery Chili Cook-off Near Brenham TX B&B

February 25th, 2010 by Pamela Murski

Another Texas tradition, a chili cook-off, was paired with Texas wines at Windy Winery last Saturday just down the  road from Murski Homestead B&B, here in Brenham TX. There were 4 chili teams for the first annual event hosted by Auggie and Linda Meitzen of Windy Winery.   John Beland, famed guitarist, was also on hand providing live music while we  tasted and drank!  The event, held outdoors, was fun, fun, fun and delicious to boot!  Be sure to put it  on  your calendar for next year and stay at the ranch just a few miles down  the road!

Mobius… That’s the name of   Brenham’s latest addition to the food and nightlife scene, a brand new real deal coffee house.  Located on Market Street it has real coffee house hours Monday through Saturday 7 am. to 10 pm.  You can stop by any evening and the place is hopping.    November 21, you will find Jenny Wood in concert!  I enjoyed a Latte’ on my first visit and am definitely looking forward to my next.   I am also looking forward to trying some of the enticing food offerred such as a Panini.  I have had reports that the food is very good.  Brenham offers lots to do!   So, give it a try on your next stop in town….
