The Watering Hole hosted its second annual chili cook-off, crowning (left to right) Jeremy Rogers and Donovan Pierce its chili champions. These two finished an incredibly close second and third place in the TX Citizen’s Frito Pie eating contest back in September, so there’s no concealing their identities. How they can even think of chili after what they’ve been through is a mystery to us. Congratulations, gentlemen.


Friends With Benefits

Emily’s Elves are back at it, collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys for kids who might come up a little short this Christmas. There’s a big ol’ box over at the Prickly Pear Lounge at the NB Ramada that we can fill up with sweet holiday goodness, so let’s do that. If you’d rather throw cash at the elves’ Christmas dinner donation program (feeds 500!), you can do that with a click click click right HERE. 


This is one of the all-time great local charities, and your contributions stay right here in the NB, helping out our friends and neighbors.


On December 1 and 2, the Watering Hole is hosting an all-weekend benefit to assist Tammy Kleinsteuber with some serious medical bills. On Saturday from 11a to 5p, $10 gets you a nice plate o’ BBQ. On Sunday at 2p, it’s a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament. Come on out and support Tammy!
