Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Reas at Hogs Festival in New Orleans (Mar 30, 2019)

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Home

Kick New Orleans festival season off right … with BBQ! Hogs for the Cause returns as the best barbecue festival this side of the Mississippi.

New Orleans welcomes over 90 local and regional BBQ masters and the best backyard chefs to compete in seven categories: Whole Hog, Ribs, Pork Butt/Shoulder, Porkpourri, Sauce, Fan Favorite, and Fundraising Champion.

How did Hogs for the Cause get started?

In 2009, Hogs for the Cause hosted a pig roast to raise money for a boy named Ben Sarrat. Li’l Ben had been diagnosed with an incurable form of brain cancer. In that first year, roughly 200 people showed up to watch a pig turn slowly on a spit and raise money to help Ben’s family. Fast-forward a few short years (eight years and counting), and Hogs for the Cause is now one of the largest barbecue competitions and music festivals in the country. Our charitable purpose remains the same: helping families fighting pediatric brain cancer.

Willie Nelson Posters included in Austin’s Threadgill’s auction of memorabilia (Dec 8)

The beloved Threadgill’s World Headquarters on Riverside in Austin will close its doors on Dec. 2, after more than 20 years of serving chicken fried steak. The older Threadgill’s on North Lamar — which began life as a filling station and bar in the 1930s — before becoming an iconic live music spot in the ’70s will remain in business.

A good history of Kenneth Threadgill and his namesake venue can be found here.

And while the Riverside Threadgills lacks its sibling’s historic reverence, it still has deep ties to the past. Eddie Wilson, owner of the storied Armadillo World Headquarters, bought Threadgills’s in 1980 after the Armadillo closed. In 1996, Wilson opened Threadgill’s World Headquarters on Riverside adjacent to the location of the original Armadillo. The northern venue represented Austin of the 1930s through ’60s, and the TWH was dedicated to Austin as it became “the live music capital of the world.”

So the venue’s decor was indelibly Austin-centric. And that decor will be auctioned off Dec. 8.

Burley Auction will host the event, which includes concert posters from the Armadillo World Headquarters, neon beer signs, original art, photographs and other ephemera.

Some of the treasures include: a signed Janis Joplin photo; a painting of Jimmie Dale Gilmore; a Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers cartoon; posters from Bruce Springsteen’s 1974 show at the Armadillo; posters signed by Willie Nelson and Kinky Friedman.

An auction preview runs noon to 6 p.m. Dec. 7, and the auction begins at 10 a.m. Dec. 8 at Threadgill’s World Headquarters, 301 W. Riverside.

You can preview some of the items here.
