It came to my attention last week, as I was testifying about our new WacoFork Club campaign while drinking beer at The Dancing Bear, that there's a nice little confluence of those things coming up soon this week.
First of all, happy ninth birthday to The Dancing Bear. Lord knows I've spent many a happy hour there since it opened in 2007. Secondly, we're pumped that two of our new WacoFork Club partners — Milo and Crazy Horse Grill — will be helping to celebrate on Tuesday night.
Ok, you caught us again. This next participating "restaurant" in the WacoFork Club is also not a "restaurant." It's actually a farm! The Home Grown Farm, to be exact. And guess what. This is the last in our list of the original 21 WacoFork Club participating restaurants! But you can bet that we'll be adding more to the list very soon.
Ok, you caught us. This next "restaurant" isn't really a "restaurant." It's a beverage. But it's a beverage made right here in Waco and sold directly to consumers at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market and at Happy Harvest, among other places. The next company on the WacoFork Club list is Bare Bucha.
We hope you are enjoying your WacoFork Club memberships as much as we are. My family and I saved $5 last night just at Heritage Creamery! If you user your WacoFork Club membership regularly, you'll save well more than the $30 you spend on your membership. It's really a no-brainer!
The next awesome local restaurant on our list of WacoFork Club participating restaurants is Happy Harvest. We are really excited to work with Happy Harvest, because we know how great Chef Juanita Barrientos is!
The WacoFork Club launched yesterday, and we are so excited to see where this thing goes and how it will continue to grow and get better and better! On that note, we still have more participating restaurants to announce. The next restaurant on our list of participating restaurants is Milo Biscuit Company.
Milo has 2 food trucks: 1 behind Heritage Creamery, and the other behind the Magnolia Silos with several other WacoFork Club restaurants. Milo can be best described as southern comfort food from local farmers. I mean, just look at those biscuits!
After years of dreaming, planning, and creating, we are proud to finally announce that the WacoFork Club is officially launched!
We have been fortunate to be able to partner with Communities in Schools of the Heart of Texas in the past, and we are thrilled that they wanted to partner with us again for the WacoFork Club. Communities In Schools of the Heart of Texas (CIS-HOT) is part of the national Communities In Schools network, the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization, serving 1.5 million students every year.
Heritage Creamery started serving ice cream in February 2015 at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market while plans were underway for building out their permanent location at 1125 S. 8th St., right next to Common Grounds, which opened in March of this year. I got my first taste of Heritage Creamery ice cream last year at the first annual Texas Food Truck Showdown in downtown Waco, and it absolutely lived up to the hype.
George's is offering free chips and salsa with the purchase of an entree (limit one per table).
They're offering a free drip coffee or espresso with the purchase of whole bean coffee. Additionally, they're giving 10 percent off their early bird special between 7-8 a.m. on Saturdays. Those are dang good deals.
