Franklin BBQ should be back up and serving again within the next 4-6 weeks but I agree with @Broark, there are plenty other options that are on par with Franklin without the wait.  I'd put La Barbecue up there with Franklin on any given day and Mickelwaith is a very close second.  I'd probably skip Salt Lick as it's more of a picturesque venue with decent BBQ and Driftwood can be a hassle to get to depending on traffic.

Just throwing it out there but my sister and her husband own and operate the King Bee Lounge at 12th and Chicon which might be good for a meetup.  They've got a very large bar area with a nice patio that could accommodate a large crowd without much fuss.  They've got great cocktails, award winning pizza and some of the best Mezcal offerings in Austin.  Let me know if there's any interest and I can assist with coordinating.

Myself and @formulapfaff are "planning" to be there but he is still waiting to hear if he is driving in "24 hours of Lemons" that weekend -

@Giles - I keep trying to find tickets to the COTA event and am coming up dry - are tickets available yet somewhere?  Also, what car are your friends driving?  Crossing my fingers for the Cayman as It looks like every other driver is brining a 911 to the party lol

Not sure about tickets, The guys are coming to Kanreki, so I'll ask them.....

911 I am afraid....

Sweet!  I've been watching the COTA site, but they are still pushing their Sept/Oct events.

Well, at least the 911 is tried and true :)

Fantastic - just waiting to hear if @formulapfaff is racing that weekend in FW or not. If he is, we will come to Austin Friday night - if he's not, we will be there all weekend. I'll let you know ASAP.

Thanks!

FIVE WEEKS TODAY!  ???

Plan is for a meet up on the evening of Friday 10th November at a hostelry in/near downtown Austin (selfishly because that's close to where we and our friends are staying!)

@Broark has given me a great list of ideas, also love the sound of King Bee Lounge @Clint_D - I guess what I'd like to do first is to get a feel for how many folks will be able to come along.  I don't think we'll be a massive crowd, but I guess even if it's just 12 to 15 of us we'll need reserve a space on a Friday evening.

So far I am counting:

Broark
@Appfaff and brother
@Giles and me (and probably 3 or 4 of our friends - the members of the family who are not racing the following day!)
@Chris - does Friday evening work for you?
@HeavyGenes - ditto?
@mikebarhoot  - ditto?

And of course let me know if you plan to bring partner/friends etc. just so that I can get a good handle on probable number.

CAN'T WAIT!  ;D

Looking forward to it! I'll be bringing my girlfriend along in all likelihood.
I know @sir_longshanks will also most likely be tagging along.
Plus I mentioned to Victor (selvedge1 on Instagram) that you guys were visiting and he was interested in the meet up, I'll touch base and see if he can still make it.

I'll be there Friday night, I'm not sure if anyone will be with me.  I'll have to sit down with Julie and hammer out our plans, since I know she had a couple of things she wants to do while we're there, and we'll have to accommodate the children, demanding little monsters that they are.
