Everyone already loves the Salt Lick for their barbeque. But what about for their beehives and bouffants?
Theatre Action Project (TAP), Austin's small-but-mighty nonprofit bringing theatre into and out of the classroom, invites you to join them at the Salt Lick this weekend for their ingeniusly creative Spring fundraiser, the Big Hair Country Fair.
Featuring the world famous flavors of all-you-can-eat Salt Lick BBQ (and all-you-can-drink cocktails), the event will also include carnival games, an old fashioned cake walk and even opportunities to pan for "gold."
The fair gets its unique and utterly repeatable name from the celebration of big hair here in Texas. And if you're not already hairsprayed closer to heaven, the good folks at Birds Barbershop will help you achieve all of your architectural hair dreams. After all, if you're going to be eating some of Texas' best barbeque, shouldn't you at least look the part?
To help you get in the spirit as well, two hand-picked musical acts will provide the Southern sounds for the day. Hot Club of Cowtown will get your boots scootin' with Western swing and Oliver Rajamani, dubbed the "gypsy cowboy," will astound you with his boundary-defying music.
From what we hear, there might also be a genuine Dolly Parton impersonator on the premises as well, but heaven only knows if we'll get a rendition of "Jolene" out of her.
TAP is a vital part of the Austin community, bringing creative opportunities to young people in the classroom, after school and through community based performance. The Spring fundraiser helps to support TAP's continued efforts to provide more programming and expand their reach to all students in the Austin area with their message of inspiration.
Tickets to Theatre Action Project's Big Hair Country Fair are still available. Individual tickets are $75.00 and include all the food and drink (and hairpsray) you can muster.
