My help-me-get-another-presidential-site hosts took us to another Bush hangout. After the conference we went to Johnny’s BBQ in downtown Midland (a city that was extremely empty on a Saturday night). Johnny’s was started by a friend of Laura Bush’s father who in fact, nicknamed the restaurant “the sick pig” since there was a statue of a skinny pig by the front door.
Who knows – but I was told that this is also the place where President Bush often came to meet clients and make business decisions when he worked in Midland. (But I have no guarantee of this.)
And the bbq was excellent.
