BBQ Saturday with Morrison and Van Os

If I had to describe David Van Os in one word, I would probably have to say "momentum". The dude never stops. Now he's coming to Houston to one of my favorite venues, and he's bringing some heavy hitters with him.

Van Os, best known for his Filibuster for Independence at the Texas State Capitol, is running for Texas Attorney General, and is well into a marathon speaking tour through Texas.

Mark your calendars. This Saturday, March 25th, he'll be at Drexler's BBQ.

That's right, Clyde "The Glide" Drexler's Mom's and Pop's place at 2300 Pierce, a downtown landmark.

With him will be Master of Ceremonies Richard Morrison, who is running against Tom DeLay for District 22 in this year's election.

Music will be provided by David Rovics, who's show has been described as "the musical version of Democracy Now", and a musical political comedy called "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime".

Advance tickets are cheaper, but you can pay at the door.

See the flyer here.

See you there!

Correction: PDiddie rightly pointed out that Nick Lampson is running against DeLay in the upcoming election. He won't be at the BBQ, because hopefully he'll be out there convincing the lemmings in District 22 not to reelect an ethically-challenged, power-hungry Charlatan. The non-lemmings in District 22 don't need convincing.

Richard Morrison ran against DeLay in the 2002 race. I guess I'm still living in the past, 'cause the present is so surreal. Doh! I was saving that for therapy! Now I'll have to think of something else...


  • Thanks for the pub, Eric! And see you Saturday night.

    BTW, it's Nick Lampson (not Richard) this go-round against La Cucaracha Grande.
