A SaddleBrooke Ranch Texas Club posse “saddled-up” and sauntered down to Tucson’s El Corral restaurant on April 4, for a mesquite-fired dinner. Filled with classic cowboy charm and ambiance, the historic restaurant was the perfect setting for a Texas Club event and the sharing of Texas-style camaraderie and tall tales.

Our little soiree was a great time for us fellow Texans (bless their little hearts) to catch up in the Texas spirit and just enjoy each other’s company. When our feedbags were emptied, we all enjoyed a little raffle with Made-in-Texas prizes: cowhide earrings, Texas coasters, peach whisky, and Verde Chili spices. On our way out, we stopped at the El Corral fireplace for our traditional picture with the Texas flag.

The Texas Club holds social events throughout the year, each with a special Texas theme. If you have ever lived in the great state of Texas or “got there as fast as you could,” come join in the fun. If you are not already on our contact list and would like to join the club, please email Janelle Authur at her email address in the Ranch directory. And as y’all knowwe do things right in Texas.
