February 10, 2011

Weather kept some from attending, but even a slightly abridged version of Howard County Day in Austin was a success Wednesday, organizers said.

Chefs from the Permian Basin will serve it out to try and obtain the title of best-tasting soup. The public will be able to sample the different soups from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
