We went to HEB, the Texas super store. They give you samples of all kinds of food and wine. I had a great time and we bought a King's cake. It's a Mardi Gras tradition. Fat Tuesday is next week.
In the meantime, today we went to a local craft distillery that makes gin, moonshine, whiskey and vodka. I'm personally a vodka person, but tried it all. The gin wasn't too bad along with the peach whiskey. The vodka was delish, bought a bottle.
After that, we went to the Blue Water Seafood and had crawfish and oysters. Everything was really good and the decor was right up our alley. Wood and paper towels. Superbowl is tomorrow and we are staying with Broncos fans, so Go Broncos!
|King Cake, the filling has cream cheese, not fattening at all.|
Whitmeyer distillery, one of the few legal distilleries in Texas.

|The distillers are heated by hot water heaters from Lowes!|
|Glenn and I shared a dozen oysters. Jay had his own. He doesn't share well with others.|
|Fried shrimp, shrimp gumbo, crawfish, oysters; yummy!|
