Sunday Night Foodball
Fri January 2, 2009 1:27 pm

You might want to stake a claim to your local TV this Sunday, Jan. 4, at 7 p.m. Central time. That's when the Food Network will show its "Challenge" program featuring the famous Hico Steak Cook-off, Beef Symposium, and Tourist Trap. I was actually on hand this summer when the Food Network crew came to Hico, which is an impossibly cute north central Texas town, and filmed the event--the contestants were at their most outrageous and loquacious. Good stuff. This year's steak cookoff will be May 16, 2009.  It's really a great event--with bands, crafts, the steak contest, and about a ton of red meat. Yum. (The cook-off website is undergoing some revisions and isn't up now--check it in a few weeks.)
