Menudo madness

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Only a few more menudo (tripe soup) competition booths left to trick out your grandma’s secret recipe and have a chance at bragging rights of making the best menudo. Crime Stoppers’ Menudo Bowl is always planned on a weekend close to the Super Bowl and is by far one of the cheapest annual events at $5 for anyone over 12. This year to avoid the long lines caused by charging for parking, there won’t be a parking charge – Yay!! Menudo tasting begins at 1pm until the menudo runs out – so no complaining if you get there at 5pm and expect to get free menudo.

Oh wait, did I tell you when it is? Saturday, January 22, 2011 at LIFE Downs fairgrounds. There will be other activities taking place early in the morning with the Brush County Trail Riders and after doors open, a roping competition and motorcycle run.

All proceeds from the Menudo Bowl go towards the rewards that are given out when you make an anonymous tip about a crime that results in action. At today’s press conference, the new Board of Directors were also installed. I’m trying to get my taste buds ready for tasting about 50 different kinds of menudo recipes. Not the easiest job but it sure is fun.
