Your regularly scheduled WacoFork updates could be returning soon.
Since I’m the one writing this blog, I’m going to go ahead and sort of confess in a way that’s going to sound like a humblebrag. I acknowledge all of this along with the fact that I have dropped the WacoFork blogging ball in the last couple of months.
That’s because I’ve been knee deep in football for a while. In the spring of 2014, I began working on a high school football project that was picked up by University of Texas Press. The manuscript for the book was due in September, so this summer (along with playing golf and going to rock concerts) I was banging out the final dozen or so chapters of the work that I turned in just ahead of deadline.
I hope some of you will look forward to reading “The Republic of Football: Legends of the Texas High School Game” when it is released in July of 2016.
That’s why restaurant blogging shifted to the back burner, and then possibly completely off the stove. Another factor is that pretty much everyone involved in WacoFork has had major career developments (all to the good) since the end of May.
If you really don’t give a flip about football or our careers, you just want more restaurant info, I don’t blame you (much). I have good news for you. Pieces are being put in place so that we can find a sustainable way of moving forward.
Cory and I met with one of WacoFork’s most loyal friends at Twisted Root today (btw, very good burgers were eaten). Stephen Evans is both a connoisseur of food and a fantastic chef. We have witnessed his culinary abilities at tailgates and the like during the past few years. He wanted to help me get this blog back up and running and we’re thrilled to have him on board.
So we’re going to crank up the engine again here shortly.
