barrel racing tips from Carhartt

Meet Brittany Baton, an extraordinarily talented barrel racer from East Texas. She’s the southern girl next door with a close knit family and a drive to compete in the arena. When you’ve been riding since the ripe old age of two, you get to be pretty comfortable in the saddle. Watching Brittany run barrels you can see how natural and at home she feels there. Her advice to beginning barrel racers is to “always have an open ear for anyone that knows more than you do. Listen to their advice and try to use it because you can never learn too much.”

Welcome to hell’s half acre, folks! That’s the affectionate way Stubb referred to what is now the location of Stubb’s BBQ in Austin. It is the place for good BBQ, good beer, and good music. So much history is jam packed into that joint. Stubb, respected war veteran and a real good cook,
opened up his first restaurant in 1968. It was all about that hickory pit and the blues. Legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Cash, Muddy Waters, and Willie Nelson all played there.

Even though Stubb passed a few years back, his spirit lives on in the food and the work ethic that drives the place now. Sarah, pictured above, started off as a bartender at Stubb’s and eventually worked her way up the ladder. She’s now the Special Events and Catering Director. There’s nothing like hard work to get you where you want to go.
