Eats & Bounds: Lubbock Concerts, Events, & TTU Sports – 10/05/17

Only the cool kids kickoff before noon.

In case anyone was wondering, only the best games kickoff at 11am. We are bestowed this honor three out of four weeks. The Texas Tech Alumni Association has you covered if you’re in Lawrence for Game Day.


The brisket flat ended up being a success. I took this recipe and modified it quite a bit since my sale bin brisket was only about 1.5 lbs and I wanted to use things we already had at the house.

My wife fixed the sides (yes, we like all beans), and we were eating just in time for kickoff.

Another 11am kickoff this weekend has me taking the easy way out. I doubt I do much cooking, but I plan on doing plenty of eating.

The fall weather is meant for Oktoberfest and bourbon. I’ve been trying a few of the cheaper bourbons lately (~$20), and so far Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey are my favorites. Was not a big fan of Jim Beam’s Black Label Extra Aged, but with a little bit of ice and some bitters, that bottle still ended up empty. As far as Oktoberfests go, it’s hard to beat St. Arnold’s or Sam Adams.

What do you all have in store for the weekend? Anything interesting on tap?


Here’s a few of the things happening in Lubbock (check the calendar for more):

  • Ray Wylie Hubbard will be at the Cactus Theater tonight
  • The First Friday Art Trail is tomorrow from 6-9pm
  • Alamo Drafthouse is hosting a watch party for Saturday’s game in Kansas
  • Back 40 Grill is hosting a cook-off benefitting Boots and Badges on Saturday with live music from Jenni Dale Lord, Texas 114, Texas Outlaws, Vance Guthrie, and Cole Barnhill. They will have the Tech game on, of course.
  • Cody Canada & The Departed will be at Charley B’s on Saturday
  • On Sunday, The Blue Light is hosting Texas Music Flood, which is a concert benefitting those who are still rebuilding and surviving the aftermath of Harvey
  • Lubbock in the Loop has a pretty great comprehensive fall schedule of events. I’ll be linking to this one weekly for a while and will be adding some of the events to the calendar.
