You ever see an idea, a good idea, and think, man, I wish I would have thought of that? That smack in the face moment happened when I heard about The Q Card. It’s genius.
Created by Drew Thornley from the must follow blog on all things Texas bbq Man Up Texas BBQ , you simply have to pony up 10 bucks a year (The Q Cards will be sold for $10 each and be good for 1 year, but as they kick this thing off, the first 1,000 cards sold will be good through October 2011 (17 months) and will be sold at a 25% discount (only $ 7.50) for the entire month of June) and you get to enjoy savings and discounts at all of these affiliated joints(they’re getting so many this list it’ll be obsolete after this goes live I imagine):
Black’s Barbecue, Stanley’s Famous Pit Bar-B-Que, Louie Mueller Barbecue, Old Time Pit Bar-b-que, Old School BBQ & Grill, Snow’s BBQ, Buzzie’s BBQ, Fritzes BBQ & Catering, Two Bros. BBQ Market, Big Mo’s BBQ, The Shed BBQ & Blues Austin, Schoepf’s BBQ, Franklin Barbecue, Opie’s BBQ, David Crawford’s Homerun Catering, Muck-N-Dave’s, Fat Mac’s Smokehouse, Smokilicious Bar-B-Q, Cooper’s Old time Pit Bar-B-Que (Llano, New Braunfels, Fort Worth), Big Jake’s Bar-B-Q,
Here’s the list of joints that they update frequently. It’s pretty much a who’s who of joints you’ll want to visit in Texas (barring just a small amount which I’m sure are on their short list). I live in California, but I’m thinking about getting one just in case I get the urge to book a quick flight out there.
You can buy a card at any of the joints listed above or go to their website to order via paypal.
