Rockin’ Red Ranchers Beat the Heat with Summer Sippin’

Peggy Crandell

Picture cool cocktails on a hot Texas day in the air-conditioned Wildhorse Grill. Then add Chef Patrick’s yummy pulled pork/mango chutney flatbread and a tropical fruit tray. What a delightful combination to escape the heat during our record-setting, hot summer.

Fifteen Rockin’ Red Ranchers playing Happy Hour Bingo while sipping Jeremy’s delightful creations, Hurricanes, and strawberry piña coladas was the order of the afternoon. As we were all competing to yell, “Bingo,” and win prizes, what fun it was to hear our Bingo-master Mala call out names of cocktails instead of boring letters and numbers. I’ve been involved in a few “drinking games” in my life, but I must say, Happy Hour Bingo was a first.

Our hosts Mala Bowdouris, Jennifer Rahn, and Margo Kalina kept us entertained and out of the scorching heat. With tropical decorations and island-type drinks, we all imagined the ocean breeze wafting through the Wildhorse Grill lounge as we ate, drank, and socialized with our fellow Rockin’ Reds.

Thank you, Mala, Jennifer, and Margo, for such a “cool” afternoon!
