Remembering the Republic of Austin

Posted at May 29, 2012 by Comments Off on Remembering the Republic of Austin

Oh, those were the days, when parking downtown was nothing more than tossing your horse’s reins around a hitching post and hurrying home for dinner required dodging a only a few arrows instead of thousands of cars. Jeffrey Kerr, author of The Republic of Austin, brought those days back to life in the two dozen stories of exciting times in Austin between 1832 and 1844. On this evening, his telling the stories of the infamous “Pig War” and that of Josiah Wilbarger kept guests glued to their chairs. Kerr has the wonderful ability to be both educational and entertaining.  Adding to the historic evening was the cuisine of 2Dine4 using adapted 19th century recipes from the Governor’s Mansion–a sensational meal showcasing the variety of our amazing state.
