Eats & Bounds: Texas Tech v. Kansas

Llano Estacado Winery is hosting their 22nd Annual Grape Day. The Flatland Film Festival is under way. The Damn Quails are in town. What to do, what to do…

Lawrence, Kansas

I decided to recycle some recommendations that you sent to me the last time Tech played in Lawrence. Update as needed in the comments on where to grub.

The Jayhawk Cafe “The Hawk” (1340 Ohio St)

The Wagon Wheel Cafe “The Wheel” (507 W. 14th St)

Free State Brewing Company (636 Massachusetts St)

Dempseys Burger Pub (623 Vermont St)

TTU Alumni Pre-Game Party

All Texas Tech fans traveling to Lawrence for the Kansas game are welcome to join us for a pregame party at 9 a.m. on Oct. 17 in the KU Memorial Unions 6th floor.

The event, sponsored by the TTAA and Red Raider Club, will have free admission, but there will be a breakfast bar available for a $10 charge.

Recommendation of the Week

Hydrate. It’s an 11am kickoff.

But seriously, folks, I am asking for a favor. My wife and I will be at the State Fair on Saturday. What do you recommend in this vast, unregulated realm of food? It will only be my second time there (TTU v. Baylor) and her first, so we could use some help rationing out our lard intake. Any suggestions?
