An Evening with Pat Green at The Roundup
It’s not often that we get out without the kids; in fact it’s pretty rare. That’s something we try to work on, but with three kids who are all so young, it’s hard. BUT, when we heard that Pat Green was playing at The Roundup as part of their Tex Mex Honky Tonk Festival, we jumped at the chance to go. If you’ve never been to The Roundup before, you’re missing out. Tons of food trucks and vendors; a play space for the kids complete with swings, climbers, a bounce house and a huge bounce pillow; live music; plenty of parking and room to roam around…it’s truly fun for the whole family.
For this show, we opted for VIP tickets which gave us a reserved picnic table on the deck, a waiter to take our drink orders, and indoor restrooms. When we saw Kevin Fowler last year, we had general admission tickets and brought our own chairs for sitting on the hill. You might think VIP is THE way to go, but really both experiences were fantastic for us. With general admission you can still see and hear just fine, the beer stands and food trucks are easy to get to, and the porta-potties are tucked away for privacy and there’s never really much of a line. It all really just depends on your budget and ticket availability; you’ll have a great time either way!
We started our evening by hitting up the food trucks, of course. I was too hungry to take any pictures, but that chopped beef sandwich and fries was pretty darn good. After that we found our way to our table and enjoyed a couple of cold beers before the show. They have the usual bottled beer: Bud, Miller, Coors, etc…but we were also quite impressed with the selection available on tap. I opted for one of my favorites, the Buried Hatchet Stout by Southern Star Brewing Company out of Conroe, Tx. Yup, we like to drink local, when we can. ;-)
So tell me, what things do you like to do for a night out? A bit of grown-up relaxation? Do you have similar venues in your area? How often do you get to go?
