TOUR DE LUBBOCK PART 2

7.24.2014

After our Greek Circle shenanigans, we headed over to stop #2.

CapRock Winery

We pulled into the deserted parking lot and were met with multiple gun shots...seriously.  Thankfully said shots were directed toward the sky and not at our tour group. A dog in the distance was like...retrieving things and a man nearby continued to fire away.  This was the EXACT impression we were striving to give the visiting girls...EXACT.

After our minor disturbance, we verified that the tasting room was in fact open and got to it. 


Sara and I ended up leaving with the surprisingly delightful blend "Knuckle Bump"...like...HAD to.


After wrapping up our tasting, we loaded up the car and hit the road.  As we hit the entrance after a little ways, Mia noticed she was slightly less cramped than on the way there and asked if we forgot someone. 

Friend.Fail.

We turned around to pick up Courtney and enforced a "count off" rule for the remainder of the trip.

Llano Estacado Winery

For none all of you who are planning a trip to Lubbock for wine tasting, we favored Llano Estacado hands down. It also helped that we had the sweetest guy conducting our tasting and putting up with our antics. 


Stubb's BBQ (original)

After working up our wine buzz (we had a DD back off), Sara directed us to the original Stubb's BBQ.  It is no longer an operational restaurant, however, it was the original (says Sara) so...take that Austinites.


Buddy Holly Museum

Ok, so we didn't exactly take a tour here...it was more of a photo op situation.  Like..."leave the car running and all doors open while we hop out" photo op situation.  We were hungry.


Rounding out the tour and saving the best for last was the one and only...

Caprock Cafe


Eating this for lunch then trying to fit in a dress for the wedding was comical.  Let's just say my "back up" became my go to.
