Sad news from over the weekend.  Charlotte Nelson of Fox Bros BBQ has passed.  She was 37 and she had breast cancer.  On Friday, Jonathan Fox emailed folks to update everyone on the status of Charlotte.  In that email, Fox mentioned an event for “Charlotte’s Web”, to help curtail medical costs and ease the family’s tension.  Sadly, Charlotte passed away on Saturday.  However, I have been told that the event is still a go, though the details are a little in flux.

The event is on Tuesday, February 26th, tickets are $100 and there are a bevy of participating restaurants/chefs.  You’ll get some grub (in the form of passed hors d’oeuvres), some booze, and you’ll get to participate in a silent auction.  Meanwhile, Moontower will be providing all of your auditory needs.

Tickets can be purchased via brown paper tickets and details of the event can be found on event website SupportCharlottesWeb.comThe website has not been updated to reflect Charlotte’s passing, but updates will be posted as soon as they are available.

I’ll update this post with any pertinent information I receive.

UPDATE:

The proceeds from Charlotte’s Web are now going to go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation –92 percent of donations there go to directly back to research.

Big Tex Cantina, a Tex-Mex joint from Fox Brothers Barbecue et al, is officially opun fo’ bid’ness.  Located just off the beaten path in downtown Decatur, you’ll find Big Tex’s in the vacant space that once housed Nathalie’s Fish House.

Opened nearly a year to the day after the dearly departed said adios, Big Tex is a straight up So-Tex watering hole that nudges the harshed upon stepchild of Mexican cuisine.  Regardless of the ultimate success or failure of such an endeavor, you can’t say Big Tex, for better or worse, is not trying to do something a little different with the portmantologism of Texan Mexican grub.

A typical plate of Tex-Mex is like a fortress of food.  In such a case, a plate covered by a castle of tortillas, cheese, meat (and sometimes gravy), and buttressed with some rice and frijoles refritos, will taunt you.  “Eat me … break down my caloric induced walls and best me … I dare you.”  That’s not what you get at Big Tex.
