What do hamburgers, Texas country music legends, and wedding gowns have in common? A Red Hat outing on the loveliest day of fall. Twenty-one Robson Red Hat Ranchers traveled to Denton to experience the LSA Burger Company and visit the American Bride Exhibit at the Greater Denton Arts Council’s Center for the Visual Arts. Everyone enjoyed a day filled with fun, delight, humor, artistry and amazement.
Lone Star Attitude (LSA) is a killer burger and a cold beer, lovingly prepared with the best ingredients and served with Texas hospitality. It is also a celebration of the rich musical heritage of Texas. Texas has produced some of the biggest stars in the history of recorded music. LSA Burger Company is the first gourmet burger joint in Texas to honor the state’s musical legends and trailblazers. The Texas music theme greets visitors from the moment they enter the restaurant. Concert posters line the walls, a large painting by the front door shows God enjoying a meal with Texas country legends and over the bar is a gigantic Texas map sculpture made up of 64 musical instruments and equipment. The Red Hatters chose to eat on the second floor, an open-air dining experience overlooking the Square. Surrounded by kegs of beer, under a three column high beer-bottle chandelier and perched on rustic picnic tables, the ladies enjoyed every morsel of food and conversation.
Afterwards, refreshed and relaxed, the Red Hat Ranchers traveled down the street to the Center for the Visual Arts. There an exquisite display greeted them upon arrival. Forty wedding dresses, many well over 100 years old, were on display. Silks and satins, organdy and organza, cut velvet gowns and hand-made lace, each dress was beautiful and unique. The ladies gazed in admiration at the handiwork and beautiful details displayed in all the gowns. The Red Hat ladies were thrilled with the opportunity to view this elaborate exhibit which was ten years in the making. Even humor was present. Puzzled at what to wear for your fifth wedding? The exhibit had an answer, and the answer was an eye-opener. From 1840 to 2013, this truly was a Wedding March Through History. A perfect ending to a perfect day.
