Anything can happen on the sidelines here in Lubbock. Let's hope we don't have to resort to this.

TTU v. TX St. – Lubbock Events:

Wednesday, September 18th

At'l Do Farms
The Corn Maize

This is a great place to take your significant other and/or family. Could be a nice first date option that I think The Pirate would approve. They opened up for the season on September 14th and run until November 30th. The Maize is closed on Mondays, but open Tuesday-Friday from 6-9pm, Saturday from 10am-9pm, and Sunday from 2-9pm.

Jones AT&T Stadium – 6:00pm

The game is a sellout, and we are asked to White Out the Jones. This is the Celebrate Cotton game. I grew up farming cotton with my dad, so I think this is an excellent way to pay tribute to the farmers in the cotton industry. I remember geeking out last year after seeing one of these in person for the first time parked near the northwest gate. It picks cotton, bales cotton, and BLOWS MINDS.

Big E's Barbeque (1802 Buddy Holly)

You probably know it as "that great BBQ pit set up behind what used to be Klusoz that's open late on the weekend". Big E's has sausage wraps, brisket, fajita tacos and BBQ plates. And did you know they are open for lunch on Fridays? You can tell the crew at Big E's takes their BBQ seriously. Sometimes it's tough to find good BBQ in Lubbock, but this place is the real deal.

What say you, VTMers?
