National Building Museum: Architecture Followed by BBQ

Tour the museum and view some cool architecture, then partake of a taste of Tejas at Hill Country’s Backyard Barbecue on the museum’s west lawn, along Fifth Street NW between G and F streets, one block east of the Verizon Center.

 

Now for the BBQ:

Get ready for a combination picnic-style outdoor barbecue and honky tonk, with a menu of brisket, pork and chicken sandwiches, hot links and sides. All entrees are $10 and come with a side. Get into the Texas boot-scootin’ spirit with four styles of Shiner beer, signature cocktails and margaritas, including a grapefruit-flavored Ruby Red concoction.

    I know the instructions say where we will meet, but I've never been on one of these outings with this group. Will it be obvious where our group is? Should we buy tickets first, before 2 pm?
    Thanks!

      Andrea, it's usually pretty obvious where the group is. I always make sure to look at the event host's photo before the event to make sure I can recognize them. Kimbers is pretty recognizable. :)

      I'm probably going to pick up my ticket before 2.

    Good Morning Everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing all y'all at the Building Museum. Please keep your RSVP up to date. If you know you aren't going to attend today, please update your RSVP so that we know not to look out for you. If you can't find the group, leave a message on this site or check-in. There has been a lot of discussion about diet. For those of you not feeling the BBQ or concerned about gluten, there are a number of options nearby around Gallery Place. The menu for the the backyard bbq is limited and as someone who is gluten intolerant, I will be watching what I eat closely. Consider buying your tickets early or online. Save yourself some time; remember this is tourist season.

    Are you planning to play one of the mini golf courses while you're at the museum?

    • Lisa A.

      I'd be interested in the mini-golf :)

      July 25, 2013

    • Kevin D.

      Lisa I did the mini golf last year with Helen and its a blast. Some of the holes are a bit funky from a mini golf point of view but they are really creative and cool for the most part.

    I want to, but I'll be working in Fredericksburg unfortunately. Sounds like it would be great.

    well, the building museum is directly across the street from my apt, so surely even an introvert inTj like me can make it. :)
