Get sauced at Austin-Bergstrom Int’l Airport

If you’re heading to or through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Friday (January 7, 2011) make your way to the stage across from Gate 10 by 3 pm.

Texas music icon Ray Benson (of Asleep at the Wheel) will be there playing a few tunes with Redd Volkaert, one of Merle Haggard’s guitarists.

Benson will also be introducing Ray Benson’s Asleep at the Bar-B-Q Sauce (two versions: Roadhouse and Spicy) and handing out samples of the sauces on beef brisket sandwiches.

As a nice added touch: throughout the month of January, whenever a bottle of the sauce is sold at the airport, $1 will be donated to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM).

Want to buy a few bottles to take home?  Once you’re past the security checkpoint at Austin Bergstrom airport, you’ll find the sauce for sale at Ray Benson’s Roadhouse. Outside the airport, the sauce is for sale throughout Texas at H-E-B grocery stores and online at
