Toast Visits Lonesome Dove

Posted at April 16, 2013 by Comments Off on Toast Visits Lonesome Dove

 

St. David’s Foundation CEO Earl Maxwell has called Toast of the Town parties “experiences” rather than events. That was absolutely the case when Toast visited the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. Event hosts President Denise Trauth and Dr. John Huffman joined special guests Sally and Bill Wittliff in greeting guests. The current exhibit of Kate Breakey’s work drew a lot of attention–but the tour of the museum with commentary by Bill Wittliff was simply priceless. As a screenwriter and producer of the Lonesome Dove mini-series, Bill has a wealth of stories from initial concept to final product. His stories alone could make another mini-series.

After reluctantly leaving the museum, guests discovered quite a bonus in dinner at the President’s House. Although the menu stayed in the trail drive theme, it was far above what might be thought of as chuck-wagon cuisine.
