You know, I figured out today that I take the Czar of talk radio, Michael Berry, for granted. I should have let you know about the Veterans Job Fair he held today at the Republic Country Club & BBQ (formerly known as the Redneck Country Club). I think I just figure that everyone I know already listens to his radio show but really, there is no excuse. Here is the flyer for the event that happened today:
Michael Berry does a ton of volunteer stuff for veterans and we should all recognize his work.
He’s also having fun with his renamed country club and new barbecue restaurant. In fact, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday he is having his own bourbon day complete with half off prices:
President Lyndon Johnson, a Texan, gave bourbon his presidential stamp in 1964 when he signed an Act of Congress designating bourbon as “the Official Spirit of America.” Officially almost exclusively made in Kentucky, the modern rise of bourbon as a preferred spirit has caused production to spread far beyond the Bluegrass State. There are now dozens of bourbon distilleries in Texas as well.
Remember, all bourbon is whiskey, but NOT all whiskey is bourbon. To be a bourbon, the mash must be no less than 51% corn. Law actually requires that it must also be stored in charred oak containers, and without any additives.
Republic Country Club will offer all bourbons at half-off to celebrate National Bourbon Day from noon to 9pm. With demand for rare bourbons now far outpacing supply (and over ten years to distill new bourbons to meet demand), many establishments now pride themselves on their private collections of hard-to-get bourbons. RCC will feature ALL of our bourbons, including those almost impossible to buy, in our half-price sale, in order to share the joy of brown water on this special day to commemorate America’s special spirit.
The address is 11110 W Airport in Stafford.
So why don’t you get out to the club, have a good time and thank Michael Berry for all he does. He is creating a legacy of servant leadership for our community and deserves our praise.
