The Grill-Meister and I met some friends yesterday at the chili cookoff in tiny Round Top, Texas (population 90 in the 2010 census). It was overcast and gray and didn’t really seem like a good day for an outdoor festival, but we were committed, so we donned sensible shoes for trodding in mud and brought our appetites. It was a wonderful experience!
The chili was great, but the people-watching was even better. I didn’t take enough pictures and none of them will win any awards, but I was struck by the sheer Americana of the scene and had to share it.
