A Touch of Texas

The February club event will be a true touch of Texas with cotton, gin (no, not that kind, a cotton gin), local music, southern comfort food, pie and antiques. Can you guess where we are going? Yes, its Round Top. We will start our day at 9:00am at the new Buc-ees, west of Katy on I-10. After refilling our coffee, getting a breakfast burrito or kolache, and if you desire Buc-cee nuggets for the road, we will drive the back roads to the Texas Cotton Gin Museum for a private tour.

The museum is a step back in time when cotton was king. The historic 1914 gin was designated on June 19, 2009 as the Official Cotton Gin Museum of Texas and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers has named it a National Historic Engineering Landmark. The gin is home to a 1925 Bessemer Type IV diesel oil engine. The restored 16 ton Lady B is the largest internal combustion engine of its vintage still operating in America!

Following the museum tour we will head in to Round Rock for lunch at Teague's Tavern, home of the Bacon Jam Burger. The should also have music by local musicians on the patio. It is then a short stroll to Royer's Pie Haven. And for the collector or shopper in the family we can visit the local antique shops for which Round Rock is famous.

Our itinerary is:

9:00am Meet at Buc-cees, Katy


9:30am Depart Buc-CEO's


11:00am Tour Texas Cotton Gin Museum


12:30pm Depart for Round Top


1:00pm Lunch at Teague's, followed by pie at Royer's Pie Haven


3:00 or what ever meets your fancy, depart for home.

The total driving should be around 150 miles, give or take a few depending on where you live.
