I live in a bbq prominent town with some fine smoked meats. Texas bbq has it's own unique character, with no sauce. Rudy's is some of the best ribs I've had the pleasure to gnaw on. Man.... the Pavlov dog effect is coming on.

Any chance you might come to LSAF this year? You're about three hours further than I am, so I know it's a stretch. But man, it's really great.

It's not like other audio shows with all the pretense and hustle and bustle. There's a little of that, but mostly it's just a bunch of buddies that hang out for a weekend every year. They're mostly hobbyists turned niche-companies with an appetite for nice stuff. Everyone brings a sample of their company's tasty treats.

(I guess with all the food analogies you can see that your Pavlovian influence has worked on me. Smile And it's getting close to lunchtime.)

MMM, Rudy's moist brisket. That stuff was yummy!

Soooo yummy!

It's meat candy! And no problem for blood sugar. Win-win!

Wow. Thanks for the invite. I'll give it some serious consideration. I have a sister in the Austin area. That's how I got the Rudy experience. I could get two good deals out of the effort. Honestly I'm not into trade shows. I've been coerced going to new car and hot rod shows and after an hour I develop cataracts looking at the stuff. Even less tolerance to art galleries. I'll digress a minute, I went to the Chicago Art Institute gallery once. After being glazed over from a melange of stuffy classical art then insipid modern art. I happen to see a display of all things, rocket engines. They were fascinating, and aesthetically rather beautiful. That saved the whole shebang.
It'd be interesting to make crude comparisons from my audio gear to what is presented at the show. But as you mention, a hale and hearty commiseration with audiophiles without snooty pedigrees.

You know, I found Rudy's in Austin too. I was commuting from Tulsa to the Austin IBM Research Lab in 2006 and 2007, doing a project for Lucent / Bell Labs. It was a wonderful experience and one of many things I liked about Austin was Rudy's. I liked Austin and the people I worked with so much I considered moving there at that time.

There wasn't a Rudy's in Dallas back then. Furthest north was Waco. So LSAF in the 2000s was pre-Rudy's days. Sad But much to my extreme excitement and happiness, they opened one in Dallas in 2015. It's on I-75, just a few miles north of the hotel. I remember first seeing it as we approached the hotel and being elated.

If I didn't enjoy LSAF already so very much, I'd say come just 'cause you'll get a taste of Rudy's. That almost makes it worth the trip. But even better, all the LSAF rooms are just "so chill" to use a millennial's phrase. Or maybe that's a Gen-X phrase, I don't know. But to say it in our language, it's totally groovy cool. Cool

Hope to see you there.

The Embassy Suites has set us up with new dates for the show. So we're set!

The Lone Star Audiofest 2020 will be held October 16th, 17th & 18th, 2020.

Mark your calendar and make your reservations!
There's no difference in price between the exhibitors and the visitors. Both get the same great rate. We like to maintain two separate reservations groups so we can prioritize keeping the show rooms grouped together. That's the only difference between the two reservation links.

So if your room will be used to show gear, please make a reservation as an exhibitor. If you are not an exhibitor, please reserve your room as a visitor. And if you get two rooms - one to show and another for a sleeper - please reserve one room on the exhibitors link and another on the visitors link.
